French Baguette (gf)

french bread and oilLong time ago,while I was in the beginning of my celiac journey,I tried a prepacked baguettes from a well known gluten free European brand which you can find in US super market,too.

I must admit,that it was awful! There was nothing to remind me of that beautiful crust,with the fluffy interior. It was completely tasteless! That’s something gets me angry! Just because we are gluten intolerant,doesn’t have to be tasteless! We deserve a better flavored product like other people!

After many experiments,I finally found a recipe that reminds me of the classic baguette. This recipe makes two baguettes. You can find the baguette pan,online at Walmart,or look at your local kitchen supply store.

Beautiful crust and fragrant interior. We ate the baguettes in one day! Perfect for a sandwich! In one loaf I added sun dried tomatoes and the oil from the sun dried tomato jar. How much I love the aromas of the fresh baked bread! Just out of this world bread!
