Our French Bread Loaf Pan is no longer simply going to be used as a wine rack for our refrigerator!!!!!
Using Gluten Free Pantry’s French Bread Mix,
I have successfully made my 1st loaf of GF/DF French Bread!
Even better was how simple and easy it was! I followed the instructions on the box, exactly as written, except I divided the dough in half and made to loaves in my French Bread pan, which I dusted with cornmeal. The result?
Crusty on the outside, soft pillow-y inside French Bread perfection!
To celebrate, I made GF Guy the meal that made him fall in love with me in college. (Bear in mind, this was before I knew how to cook, before I knew about the benefits of organic ingredients, and before I had to eat Gluten Free and Dairy Free.)
The backstory: I would go to Super Walmart (cringe) and buy a $1 loaf of French Bread, slather it with Prego Marinara sauce and Great Value brand Mozzarella Cheese, and voila! French Bread Pizza! I was such a gourmet!
Now, our version of French Bread Pizza involves baking our own loaves, organic pizza sauce, organic spinach, and vegan mozzarella cheeze. My how things change!
GF Guy surprised me by bringing home the movie The Blind Side, which we ate while enjoying our Pizza. We sat down, prayed, and cautiously took our first bites. GF Guy chewed, put his pizza down, looked at me very seriously, and said… “Wow, baby… this is really good! I really missed this!” SUCCESS!!!!!!!!! For all you people out there intimidated by baking GF bread, buy Gluten Free Pantry’s French Bread Mix. It makes baking so accessible and is perfect if you don’t have an obscene stock of 20 different gluten free flours! (…guilty…)
What was/is your “famous college recipe”?
