In the time that I’m not writing, lately I’ve been desperately trying to make a decent gluten-free bread. I’ve tried multiple recipes, and I just can’t get one to work for me! Baking bread at its best takes a hint of magic. It’s all about humidity and sea levels and the breath of an angel.


Anyway, not to bore you with the nitty gritty details of gluten-free baking, but it’s not the same. It’s like taking geletin, sugar, flavoring and wood pulp and asking you to make an approximation of an orange. Gluten-free bread is not actually bread.

Today, I decided to take another stab it it, though, and I finally made a delicious gluten-free bun! It’s light, fluffy and makes on heck of a peanut butter and banana sandwich.

1 cup rice flour

2 cups corn starch

2 tsp. yeast

2 tsp. guar gum

1 egg

2 cups water (Approximately)

2 tbsp. sugar

1 tsp. salt

1 very fervent prayer, and quite possibly the breath of an angel. 😉
