i made a loaf of bread for my three year old grandson who thoroughly enjoyed it. It was the first bread he eaten since he was diagnosed with a gluten allergy. I tried it myself and was impressed with both the taste and texture.
I've only recently gone on to a wheat free diet and as a bread lover I was beginning to despair because shop-bought wheat/gluten free bread has all the appeal of recycled cardboard. Then I tried your recipe. Three things amazed me: your flour is sold in Jersey; I made a pretty decent loaf; it tastes great! You mention it is more like cake which it is and it made me wonder if that's what bread really tasted like before we started messing around with our wheat and perhaps what prompted Shakespeare to say in Twelfth Night "What doest thou think if thou art not virtuous there will be no more cakes and ale?"
I'm very interested in making this loaf in my breadmaker, but is it possible to switch soya milk for cows milk as i have a dairy allergy?
Dear Linda, yes, you can use any type of dairy milk alternative in this recipe. Many thanks, Doves Farm

You don't state what type of flour in your recipe
I used Dove's gluten free plain flour as unable to buy the bread flour locally
I assume the recipe needs gluten free bread flour. The result was edible and flavour good, but a bit like a brick! Will try and get hold of the bread flour
Dear Elizabeth, thank you, we've updated the recipe as the recipe uses Gluten Free White Bread Flour. Good luck with your next bake! All the best from Doves Farm
Dear Mr. Northey (below)The way to measure 310g of milk is to put a jug on your scales, set them to zero and grammes. Pour milk in the jug until the weight says 310g. Regards, Jennie xx
OMG!!!!! I have been making gluten free bread for the past 10 months in my breadmaker without success. Since being diagnosed with Coeliac disease I have greatly missed normal bread. I found this recipe and it is AMAZING!! Better than shop bought gluten free bread. I am over the moon that finally I can eat bread again that tastes wonderful. It is light and fluffy as bread should be, not like the crumbly, dry concrete bread that my breadmaker recipe says to follow for gluten free. The only thing I didnt have was vinegar so I used white wine vinegar instead. I followed the recipe to the book otherwise. I have been dancing around the kitchen and will use this fantastic recipe every time from now on!! I used the basic bread setting on my Russell Hobbs breadmaker. Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou Doves Farm!! You have won me over!!
I have just bought a bread maker, and needed to make gluten free bread. My very first attempt using your above recipe produced excellent results. It turned out much better than I was expecting and tastes much better than shop bought gluten free bread. One point I would like to question though. I did not understand how to weigh milk! So I used 310ml of milk instead and it worked beautifully.
So good!!!! Nice to find a gluten free recipe that doesn't rule out dairy too!
I have just been bought a bread maker for Xmas (fastbake Morphy Richards) and attempted the recipe on the side of your white flour 3 times now. Each time it has been disgusting - completely sunk in the middle and more like yorkshire pudding! I tried reducing the amount of milk, then the oil but it turns out the same. (The bread maker booklet says to just cook it on a normal loaf bake). Any ideas except give up!?
Perfect first time!
I've got the panasonic SD-2501 bread maker, but rather than trust it's similar recipe, I went with this one, but followed the manual for my bread machine to get the programme number right. (In this case, programme 12)
The loaf is firm, cuts without crumbling and has a lovely texture. So much better than shop purchased GF. The only problem is it needs to be eaten within 2 days ... then again, not sure that's really a problem :)
