Still looks pretty good - even if not perfectly cooked.

Actually Chat and I are Facebook friends but I don't use FB much any more; I'm too addicted to Twitter.

My lovely TM demonstrator just came over and made the bread with me.  I used xanthan gum this time and the dough looked a lot different - more like dough and less like batter!  I've just popped it in the oven, so fingers crossed!!!  Will post a photo when it's done.

p.s. I have not as yet heard back from Cyndi or her team.

i'm sure i read, maybe in her newsletter, that she is struggling to answer emails these days so maybe you've been overlooked :( hopefully the xanthan gum will do the trick though! what a lovely TM lady you have!

Well it still sank a bit and it seems a tad sticky to me, but it's a big improvement on my previous efforts.

Ok I've just pulled another loaf out of the oven - definitely the best one yet! It may not look much different to the one in the first photo, but you can see that it didn't sink at the top, and it's definitely a bit less dense.

Thanks for sharing my gluten free bread making adventures!!

Nothing like a hot piece of bread for a late supper - well done.

Ditto - the loaf is even better - looks fantastic.  You can start selling them now  ;) ;) ;)

I hope the recipe keeps working for you Kniki :)  It's always worked okay for me and I prefer it to the bought stuff.  The only difference that I know of between xantham and guar gum is that guar gum can cause tummy upsets in sensitive people.
Best wishes,
