This bread is chock full of of sugar and spice and everything nice. If you miss cinnamon buns, this recipe is for you. If you really want to be decadent, drizzle the top with a vanilla glaze or our not-too-sweet cream cheese icing.
The smell of this gluten free raisin bread in the oven is so AH-MAZ-ING, don’t be surprised if the neighbours come calling! And if they do, they will never guess it’s gluten free. When it is still warm, this bread is just a bit crispy on the outside and gooey in the middle. When it’s cooled and the flavours have melded, it has the taste and texture of a really good cinnamon bun.

Once you round up the ingredients, this recipe is ridiculously easy and results in a lean, white bread with a soft crumb & a salty light-yet-crispy crust. However, the best part is that it tastes closer to white, wheat-flour bread than anything we’ve tried so far. In fact, it barely has any taste at all. Instead, it doesn’t mind taking a back seat and letting the flavours of whatever you pair it with shine through – just like we believe white bread should do!
I wish you could smell our kitchen right now. It smells like bread! Glorious warm, homemade bread! Oh, and butter, and cheese and tomato…

These were, without doubt, the best gluten free buns we’ve had so far. The crumb was tender and not too chewy and the flavour of the cinnamon, orange zest, and fruit was out of this world. You could even make these into a great hot cross bun – instructions included in the recipe.
We stored the buns in a sealed container on the counter overnight and they were still good if a bit drier on day two. For day three, we toasted what was left and they tasted great. We will certainly be making these again, and again, and again ….
Makes a super banana bread that tastes great warm or cold and stays moist – even after a few days! You may want to make two of these so you can have enough for banana bread french toast in the morning. Amazing!My mom brought one of these over the other night. She’d made it using Cup 4 Cup gluten free flour and it was exceptionally good. Below you’ll find two versions of this recipe. Our old one – which is gluten and dairy free and is also great – and one using Cup 4 Cup flour which is shown in the photo above.
Rural Route Lupiac is one of our favorite gluten free recipe sites – especially when it comes to breads and pastries. Often she uses Expandex in her recipes which we can’t get here in Alberta, so we were thrilled when she converted her brioche dough to omit the modified starch.
As you can see, the results are fantastic. The crumb is tender and rich – chewy but not gooey. It reminded Geoff of the texture of a cruller. And the taste was slightly sweet with a hint of yeast. See below for more of our review and for a link to the recipe.
This gluten free beef stew makes a hardy savory dinner and any leftovers can be frozen and reheated for busy weeknights. We think that the trick to an excellent stew is a lot of beef flavour – we are from Alberta after all! With a triple hit of beef stew meat, beef stock, and beef bouillon, this recipe fits the bill. Oh, and carrots – for some reason I love carrots in stew. Last year, in honour of St. Patrick’s Day, we decided to try making gluten free bread bowls. Our Crusty Bread recipe was just the right size and held up well!

We love our crusty breads but we have been searching for a really great recipe for gf sandwich bread. Then Geoff’s massage therapist – the BEST massage therapist – told him about this recipe she’d found on the Gluten Free Real Food website. IT IS FANTASTIC! The crust is crusty but not hard and the crumb is soft and malleable with lots of good air pockets. It produces a good size loaf (bigger than our old bakery wheat bread), slices thin or thick, freezes well and can be lightly thawed in the microwave. Oh, and it tastes great too – sweet, salty, and a bit nutty. As for shelf life, it’s still good on day two and just starts to lose its flavour and fluff on day three – not bad for a no preservative bread of any kind!

These gluten free scones are surprisingly light and taste great warm or cold. Make them even better by adding cheese (as pictured here) or raisins – whatever you can imagine! They also make a great base for open sandwiches. Scroll down for the recipe.

Yes, we said “easy” and “bread” and no, that’s not an oxymoron. Crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy in the middle, this dairy free and gluten free crusty bread – an adaptation of no-knead bread – has a slight sourdough taste and the look and texture of an artisan loaf. It doesn’t keep for more than a few hours so the recipe produces a mini-loaf about the size of four dinner rolls. Scroll down for the recipe.
