Here we are again folks!

Part Two of the Gluten Free Bread Review

You see, it’s so cool, it evens rhymes! Many of you will remember my last bread review post where DS Wholesome was crowned the winner of all UK branded loaves.

This time it’s gonna be aaalllwhite! That means no seeds, no whole, no meal, just plain old white bread. Why white bread? What’s the big difference, I hear you cry.

You did cry didn’t you?

I wasn’t just hearing things?

Oh good! I was getting worried for a minute.

Anywho, I digress. Back to white bread. White bread separates the men from the boys and because I believe in equality, it also separates the women from the girls. Why? I hear you ask…

Well because it’s bread at its bare minimum, highly refined and processed, there’s not a huge amount of natural flavour, so all your mistakes show.  You can’t hide behind the seeds and the wholegrains because elasticity and gluten play a big role in white bread construction.

St Lucia Saffron Buns Take 2 – Gluten-Free Lussekatter

IMG_9782

Back in the day when I first made St Lucia Saffron Buns, they were not really that popular on the blogosphere, let alone gluten-free versions. In order to make them, I relied heavily on Skype conversations with wonderful swedish Uncles (just in case you’re reading Unc ;)  ) and swedish cookbooks.  Things have moved along since then and Saffron buns seem to be the in thing. Yep, if Paul Hollywood’s doing em, you know you’re on to a winner! Having said that I actually started making them waaay before Mr Hollywood to coincide with St Lucia Day on the 13th, but I thought I’d rather post it later and be happy with my recipe than rush and end up regretting it.  Six days later….  I wouldn’t say I’m 100% happy but I’m pretty close.
