Gluten-free garlic bread

Gluten-free products have become so popular with the public that almost every wheat product now has a gluten-free version. Gluten-free crackers, hamburger buns, raisin bread, even chips are readily available at the supermarket. Unfortunately for me, I cannot buy any of those goods for my client because there is an ingredient in every one of them that he is allergic to! To deliver gluten-free meals that still resemble normal meals, I have to create my own bread and desserts. Almost every one of the gluten-free desserts that I have prepared in the past have been either too wet or too dry, until I found this recipe. This gluten-free french bread tastes very similar to the real thing – now add some garlic, butter, parmesan and cheese and you have gluten-free garlic bread that tastes like real garlic bread! Try this recipe out and you’ll be surprised at the outcome (in a good way)!

**Helpful tips and common mistakes

 This gluten-free french bread is much easier to make than a regular french bread; it only needs 15-30 minutes to rise! I let it rise for 30 minutes until it doubled in size.

Check on your bread halfway through cooking. My bread was getting too dark so I had to cover it with foil. 

Over an hour later, the bread is perfect. Wait until the bread has cooled before slicing. Once halved, you can see a crusty exterior but a moist, soft interior. A successful gluten-free french bread to say the least.

Now turn that french bread into garlic bread! Spread the garlic butter mixture on top and bake until golden perfection. One bite into the bread and I was impressed. In all honesty, this gluten-free version is almost completely the same as the real thing (what can I say, I love my gluten and will always be a little biased). Now whenever I need a great gluten-free french bread or garlic bread I know how to prepare it!

    I’m trying to make this but the dough is just so runny and sticky.

      Hi Minta, The dough will be more wet than your typical dough but it’ll come together in the oven. I think of it more of a batter than dough. If it looks too runny, you can a bit more flour until it comes together.
