Easy gluten and yeast free batter bread with oregano

Baking day today inspired by The Great British Bake Off on BBC2 later this evening.

This afternoon I had a go at making a different type of bread. Gluten free and Yeast free as I am intolerant to both. I was given the recipe to try by fellow gluten free tweeter @diprestwich

recipe-

3 large eggs

8oz gluten free SR Flour

7 fluid oz of milk and good quality olive oil ( about half and half )

oregano

sea salt

topping- you could use

rosemary, oregano, olives, coarse sea salt sun dried tomatoes etc

I used coarse sea salt and oregano

Image

Firstly I put 8oz of  Doves farm SR Flour, salt and some oregano in a bowl then added 3 large beaten eggs ( even though the photo shows two) , 7 fluid oz of milk\olive oil mix .

Then I whisked the batter together

Image

and poured into a greased baking tray.

Image

I sprinkled some coarse salt and oregano ( rosemary or other herbs could be used )on the top before baking in a hot oven 200c for 10-15 mins.

Image

The bread came out of the baking tray very easily, I served it warm with a choice of butter or cold pressed olive oil. It was stunning. Its going to be a new favourite!  thanks @diprestwich

gluten free RHS Hampton Court flower show

Image

Today I visited the RHS Hampton Court flower show. Knowing it would be tough to eat gluten free I packed a picnic of cheese and tomato sandwiches made using sukrin bread mix, which I made yesterday. Crisps from Tyrrells (lightly sea salted) as they are yeast and gluten free and bottled water, which I was very glad of today!

I choose to drive to the show and followed the AA signs to the park and ride at Apps court farm. After a short bus journey I arrived across the river from the sight. The best way to get to the flower show entrance is to take a ferry. This can been seen easily from where you are dropped off. Parrs flower show ferry charged £2.50 per journey. A lovely experience on a hot day like today to take a boat ride on the Thames. You can also easily walk, probably about 15 mins. 

Once in, I advise buying a programme. I didn’t and wasted valuable time finding the gardens.

Image

Some of the Low cost High impact gardens were stunning.

Image

Image

 

This was – Mid century modern

Image

A room with a view.

Image

I particularly liked this garden called Layers and links. One of the summer gardens, I think the seating area is very inviting.

Image

 

This garden was also lovely, called A cool garden. Perfect on a day like today,

Image

Image

This garden called Four corners, looked very inviting today, love the rill ! 

Image

 

another view of this beautiful garden.

Image

 

and this is the well named  Hot stuff garden.

Image

Not so keen on this one, although in todays heat it looks very cool. Called Willow pattern.

Image

This is The Witches of Macbeth.

Image

 

Between the lines.

Image

 

I was very excited when I saw this marquee, love Vintage and roses.

Image

Image

Image

 

Image

 

I absolutely loved these roses, very flouncy!

The QEF Garden of joy.

Lunch by the water under a shady tree. Perfect. Sandwiches survived really well. The Sukrin bread is not crumbly or dry in fact it is very moist and full of seeds, absolutely delicious. What better than a cold Pimms to go with a summer picnic. Not cheap but necessary today.

Image

The One show winners garden, not keen on the plastic looking toad stall, nice idea though.

Image

 

 

The Macmillan legacy garden.

Image

 

The crowds were incredible today, only ever been to the show before on Gala night, noticeably busier today.

Image

 

Gorgeous huge deck chairs, lovely wildflowers too.

Image

 

A conceptual garden, not for me! Falls the shadow

Image

 

The claw!?

Image

 

 

The Clints and Grykes garden, another conceptual garden.

Image

 

Spirits of the land.

Image

 

 

 

 

This garden is called Home spun, like the seating, just wish it was a little bigger, only room for

one person to sit.

Image

You cant beat a VW Van, especially surrounded by gerbera.

After a lovely day and some fabulous weather,  I headed back home by ferry, bus and car.

 

Easy yeast free and gluten free sunflower and pumpkin seed bread mix

Today I decided to have a go at a new bread mix I came across at the Allergy and free from show at Olympia. Made by Sukrin the sunflower and pumpkin seed bread is gluten and yeast, milk and soy free. The bread mix and other products including almond and sesame flour both gluten free are available from a selection of stockists

ImageFirst I pre heated the oven, then tipped the contents of the packet into a bowl and added water.

Mixed well and left for 3 mins. The mixture absorbed the water and became quite thick. I poured the bread mix into the container provided and popped it in the oven. Couldn’t have been more simple. loved it!

Image

Image

Baking time is approx 1hr 20mins which seemed along time for such a little loaf. After 1hr 10 mins I checked the loaf and after taping the bottom decided it was cooked. It came out of the baking tray easily.

Image

The trickiest part was leaving it to cool. I wanted to tuck straight in. The loaf looked really good. Very impressed!

Image

Once the bread had cooled I cut myself a couple of slices and spread some proper butter on top.  I was blown away by the taste and texture of the sunflower and pumpkin seed bread. The best bread I have eaten since being gluten and yeast free and the easiest to make too.

Image

10\10 for ease of making and quality of the final loaf. Well done Sukrin! a fabulous loaf. Hard to believe it is gluten and yeast free and low carb too.

The only thing that could possibly be improved upon is the size of the loaf. Rather on the small size, its not going to last me very long.

Will definitely be ordering again.
