And this loaf recipe is nice and simple bread

The individual steps don’t take much effort but you do need time which is the bit that sounds like a faff. Written down it can sound absurd just to make a loaf but it’s a piece of piss really. Try to find a recipe that fits around your lifestyle.

Thursday after work feed the starter (5m)
Friday morning make the leaven (5m)
Friday after work mix flour, water and leaven (10m) and leave for an hour
Mix in salt/water (5m)
Stretch and fold every 30m (3x5m)
Shape and put in banneton (5m) in the fridge overnight
Saturday morning score the top and bake

Only 45 minutes of actually doing stuff but takes a long run up to get a loaf.


Thanks for that. It's on my list of things to do.

I have lost the paddle out of my bread machine and it seems the only way to get a replacement is to buy them by guesswork and then swear when they don't fit.

I dare say I could make the basic metal shape, but I can't put the PTFE coating on it...

So you'd make lovely bread for yourself and tell your child tough shit?

Now think of the risks of cross contamination from flour which easily goes everywhere.
So we only have gluten free flour
Only gluten free stock cubes
Down to even only Dijon Mustard because English has flour
If we have bought bread with gluten we use a different butter
Etc

With the starter mix being alive and you having to feed it does it feel a bit like a pet Teeks? If so does it feel good or bad to cook your pet?

One easy gf recipe to try if you haven’t is flatbreads. Equal measure natural/Greek yoghurt and rice flour and a bit of olive oil, salt and baking powder.

Mix until it’s a ball then pat it out flat (it won’t roll) and fry in a dry medium hot pan.

We actually preferred them to normal flatbreads and will continue to have them.

Well, yes.
It'd depend on how old they are and how well they understand their condition. Do they know not to accept food from friends at school? Obviously you know what to do and you don't get flour everywhere and there are two butter dishes. So fcuk 'em. The condition they have is not your fault and one day they are going to have to go to university or otherwise do it for themselves so the sooner you start the better/easier it'll be for them in the future.
Life isn't fair. A lesson that is best delivered as soon as possible.

Thanks teeks. We do eat flatbread as well but it's not quite the same is it.

Paul,
Do you actually have any kids?

An obvious no from Paul there.

I don't think Paul has anyone in his life.


Paul, have you ever wondered why that might be?

Not tried pastry of bread yet but have finally come up with a good GF sponge cake receipe now Master F has been diagnosed as intolerant to the stuff.

Such a learning curve as never realised gluten was in so many products.
