Living in portugal i have a hard time getting gluten-free products, this flour has turned my life around since now i can cook for my whole family in one go.
Personally this is the one for me but my husband (the gluten intolerant in our house) likes this and mrs crimble’s mix so both will stay on the subscribe and save. I use the doves farm self-raising gf flour and love it so i had a feeling this bread flour would be at least as good and it is. I was a little surprised at the taste difference between the doves farm and mrs crimble’s but both are so good and for gf bread that’s nothing short of miraculous, really. One of the great things about this doves farms bread flour is that it makes excellent rolls and pizza dough – it’s not just for bread. I used the very easy to follow recipe on the packaging and think the vinegar makes it taste a bit like sourdough (and i do love sourdough). I also used doves farm yeast, set the loaf pans on the cooker top to rise whilst preheating the oven to ensure proper rise. Both loaves made from this came up the same – nice rise, looks and slices like ‘real’ bread, toasts well, and made a lovely sandwich last night.

We use this in all of our gluten free sponge bakes. Remove about a tbsp of flour and replace with cocoa power for a chocolate sponge and people won’t know it’s gluten free.
In the coeliac world there’s little choice but this is the best i’ve had.
If you’re wheat intolerant or ceoliac, this doesn’t makes a lovely loaf of bread – even after some experimentation. It always came out somewhat err. Perfectly edible, just not what you’d call ‘bread’. I used it with a morphy richards bread maker which doesn’t have a dedicated gluten free programme, but still seems to come out okay. If you want to make a ‘proper’ loaf of gf bread though, i’d definitely recommend doves farm’s bread flour. This plain white flour is best left for cakes and pastry, for which it’s great. And when you consider the extortionately expensive cost of shelf-bought gf products, this is very, very good value.
