    These look amazing. Here in the States I'm having some serious problems finding gluten free self rising flour. All the recipes I come across use xanthan gum (which smells horrible) and I would love to try this for my mom who has celiac sprue. She's coming to visit in April and I want to be able to serve her "bread" that won't make her sick.

    What brand do you use? Maybe I'll be lucky and find a store here that carries it too.

    Any help would greatly appreciated.

    1. Hi Trina,

      I like Genius bread, but I nearly always toast my gluten free bread as it tastes better that way. I hope you find your mom some lovely bread.


Thank you for your sweet comments. I love reading them all.
