5 Easy Bread Recipes & #FreeFromFridays

Happy Friday! This week has been beyond busy here, with quite a few meetings at the children’s schools, technical issues on my site, a day judging for the 2018 Free From Food Awards and routine hospital appointments, but it’s the weekend now, whoop whoop!

OK, this is no secret, I am a bread addict, so when I spotted Eb’s recipe for dairy-free soda bread on #FreeFromFridays last week, it reminded me I had not been making bread as much as I used to. This weekend, I shall be baking bread, and lots of it! I always marvel at how simple it is to make, with so few ingredients. I also find it fascinating how quickly the dough rises, and that’s before I even have bread in the oven.

Nothing makes me happier as I am working from home than the smell of bread baking in the oven all around the house. Then there’s the tasting, of course, as a perfect crusty loaf gets sliced. The crunchy crust, the airy crumb, the simplicity of it all…

Eb’s No Buttermilk Soda Bread takes less than an hour to make. No kneading or proving are required and it is suitable for anyone following a dairy free diet. Perfect!

Nicole’s Dairy-free Oatmeal Breakfast Loaf sounds like the perfect sweet bread!

Kortney’s Whole Wheat Buns only take an hour to make from start to finish and make the perfect burger buns. What’s not to love?

I can guarantee this is the easiest bread recipe you’ll ever come across: only 3 ingredients (& water),  a Pyrex bowl, a spoon and absolutely no kneading whatsoever!

Last but not least, you have to try Vicki’s epic Wholegrain Gluten, Dairy, Sugar and Egg-free Baguettes. They are absolutely perfect.

    Just visiting this week. I’m in awe of the ingredient list for those valentine biscuits! And I love the oven tips from Free From Fairy, even though I can’t make the recipe with yeast. Now I need to get baking 🙂

    I love this round up Mel, you just cannot beat the smell of fresh baked bread in a home. My bread making skills can leave a lot to be desired, it can be a bit hit and miss but with Vicki’s flour I tend to win more often than loose! haha. Thank you for hosting xxx

      Before Vicki’s baguette recipe, I had nothing but disasters with GF bread 🙂

    These are some of the prettiest allergen-free bread I’ve seen. And your daughter is adorable! Kids are the best test of taste-quality, amirite???

    Cheers to the #FreeFromFridays community, Mel. Excited to contribute.
