Basic Brown Bread, WK# 21

Basic Brown Bread, WK# 21

Here we are, nearly halfway through the year-long baking/blogging challenge. After the last two baking challenge fails, I decided to take a step back and try something more basic. Hence, the Basic Brown Bread. Plus, the photograph in the cookbook did me in.

For this challenge, I also wanted to recreate the picture but I just found out we are out of tomatoes so I’ll have to wait to do the picture tomorrow. However, I do have some photos I can share with you now.

I did substitute ONE ingredient but Denene Wallace (co-author of the The Joy of Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Baking cookbook) told me that I could do this one substitution if I was ever in a pinch. I didn’t use hazelnut flour, I used almond flour instead. I was out of hazelnut flour. So I think this is why the bread isn’t as brown as it is supposed to be. Still, it tastes GREAT.

Beautiful!
Beautiful!
Perfection!
Perfection!

And while we didn’t have any tomatoes today, I did have some swiss cheese and pepperoni and so I toasted that up on this slice. Delicious!

Yum!
Yum!

I think this is a very safe recipe to start off with if you are new to using alternative flours and/or if you are nervous or skeptical of gluten-free, sugar-free baking. I promise, you’ll love it.

So, basically, just mix up all the dry ingredients and set aside. Then mix up all the other ingredients; eggs, melted butter, soy milk, water and then add this mixture to the flour mixture. I knew I was going to be safe this week when the batter turned out the way it did, like it was supposed to turn out. It was just right. I was able to POUR it into the loaf pan and then put it in the oven.

The house smelled SO GOOD while it was baking. YUM! The Gent approves too. 🙂 Oh, and don’t forget to enter this month’s cookbook giveaway; only one more week to go before I shut it down for March.

Thanks for reading and happy baking!
