I'm hyperventilating LOL

I just put my FIRST loaf of gluten free sourdough bread into my dutch oven........I WILL NOT open the oven and take the lid off to check it before time! I WILL NOT open the oven and take the lid off to check it before time! I WILL NOT open the oven and take the lid off to check it before time!....Ohhhh this is killing me! I know I'm going to end up with a BRICK so I don't know why I'm so keen to see it :)....fingers crossed!

Thanks I needed to hear that, my family don't understand my passion for baking bread......I can't say I'm happy with the look, I'll wait for the morning to cut it and check out the crumb! Time will tell, tho for my first GF sourdough it's not a brick :))))

And by the way my family doesn't either, my wife tells me to shut up about it all the time.

Not happy?  I think it's a beautiful loaf!

My wife?  If I baked as much as she wanted me to, I'd get nothing else done... she's my biggest fan.  Well, her and my daughter that is...

Thank you all for the good wishes and laughs, much appreciated! To quote my son "NOT your best loaf of bread Mum"......It was far from good! But a good starting point :)

Looks a tad dense, but a great start... My brother bakes only GF stuff since his daughter has problems with gluten and I know they get good bread out of their oven.  Keep on keepin' on ...it'll get there.  Baking without gluten is challenging, but certainly not impossible.

Hi Moya,

No I didn't this time, I will try it in the future tho.

I think that gluten free would be an acquired taste... I really am having trouble imaging if I would like it... I picked up a book at the library and am reading through and trying to decide if I want to go that route... Did you make gluten free sourdough because you need gluten free... or just trying to be healthier... I am curious... Could be that we all could use less wheat in our diets... hmmmm

I can eat gluten, it's actually a close friend that has celiacs disease and that is the reason I'm baking GF. It's been over a month now that I've been trying out GF recipes for her, I think I could happily live without gluten if I can master a nice GF bread :) One thing I have noticed is that I'm not as bloated after meals.

I am sticking to bread with gluten but, with loaves like your GF, I'm not sure I should or will do so?
