Bread disaster, again...

Finally received my "How Can It Be Gluten Free Cookbook" from America's Test Kitchen.

Yahhh, Classic Sandwich Bread, here you come!
Gathered up all the ingredients, mixed away, set it aside to rise came back in just under an hour to check and .... oh my....

It had risen far far more than they said it would. I just stared at it. What to do - what to do. Can't punch it down - it is gluten free after all. So went ahead and stuffed it in the oven.

It is edible but I would not even stretch the limits and say it is sandwich bread. Toasted is good, at the bottom of the bowl with chicken stew on top also. I will find other things but am sorely disappointed. Will try again but meanwhile have to figure out how to use this up without getting tired of it.

Instructions are for a foil collar as the bread does rise over the edge but from their pictures, certainly not like this!

Instructions are for an 8 1/2 by 4 1/2 pan, if using a 9 x 5 the dough will not rise as high.

So of course, I followed their instructions.

Here is this mornings toast and then the picture from the cookbook.

I've had a few loaves worse than that, where the round bits on the side were just little wings.

May even just go back to gluten bread and put up with the pain.

I'm not celiac but do find gluten free seems to help with the inflammation in my arthritic joints a bit, not as much as I had hoped, but a bit.

Also seem to have developed a sensitivity to eggs and sulphates. Well I have my own egg layers and I make my own wine. At least making my own wine I can control the sulphites.
But my eggs... sigh, just sell them, no more for breakfast.

the other day I did bacon, hash browns, mushrooms, onions, tomato slice (which I'm also sensitive to but one slice once a week doesn't hurt)... and then sat and just looked at the plate. no egg so get over the pity party dragn and eat whats yuh gots!

Not everyone can make bread with its own handle. Nice touch!

Dragn, have you seen an allergist? Maybe they could help with the egg sensitivity.

Mrs D went for an allergy test and found out she is allergic to egg yokes.
She buys "Egg Creations" which is an egg substitute. You can only make scrambled or omelettes, but I also use it to make egg noodles or spaetzle. Any recipe that calls for eggs I use this stuff.

We are starting out with a Rhumatologist (?) Trying to make sure it is not Lymes. But you know our wonderful medical system. He has received the blood tests, if he deems it urgent I will see him in maybe 6 weeks. If it is not urgent it will be 4 to 6 months before they call me.

Thank you for the suggestion, I will send a message to my doc for a specialist in allergies.

l've been sensitive to lactose for years and never knew it. It was only recently that being on meds for acid reflux I realized all those years I was drinking milk to calm the burning in my stomach - thinking more along the lines of ulcers and wondering why it never really helped.... duhhh.... Dr. Dragn be ashamed of yourself for the self diagnostics!

We Americans have envied your system for so long we finally decided to get ours too.

I just think it would be a dirty rotten shame to not be able to eat your own hen eggs. I'm sure CWS would agree. Fresh egg eating is worth fighting for!
