I made this bread last night without the sundried tomatoes and cheese. I just wanted a plain loaf. I used Doves Farm gluten and wheat free brown flour. I only baked it for 45 mins and it was delicious! It's a great base for all sorts of bread - white, seeded, fruity etc.

Tried to do the same. Dismal results 3 times in a row. No idea what I am doing wrong but loaf essentially will not rise, or rises a bit and then collapses, leaving me with a very very dense loaf. Is there something obvious to every baker that I'm missing as its not specified in the ingredients or method??

Made this for my sister who is Coeliac and she thought it was good.When I tasted it I thought it was scrummy.I will try using ordinary plain flour and baking powder for my own use,perhaps adding some black olives and chilli flakes to adapt it for my own taste.....Ok so I tried using ordinary plain flour and added a few more tomatoes and a handful of olives.Result:even after an hour and a half cooking the bread was not cooked all the way through.Perhaps shouldn't have put the olives and extra tomatoes in.I sliced it and it just wasn't right.Ah well.Worth a try!

I have to start this by saying this is the first time I have attempted anything GF - recent development in the family. Coked it at 160/fan which was wrongly read by me so the bread, after cooked for 60 minutes, looked lovely on the outside but stayed soggy and tasted raw on the inside. Second try today - I must say it is such a simple preparation! used the oil from the tomatoes and added a pinch of salt. I have the fan oven on 180 and am trying it 10 minutes more than stated (thanks to one of the comments recommended) at a reduced temp of 160 degrees.. lets see what happens!

This is a lovely bread. Three days after baking the bread was still moist and nice to eat. I also used wholemeal spelt flour instead of the white flour.

Since discovering I was wheat and yeast intollerant, I have been on a quest to find a bread, that tastes like something you can toast! This bread came out light and airy and I have since made it with olives and rosemary too Tip: It does stick to the bottom of the tin, even after greasing,, so I suggest using grease proof paper or one of those rubber tins

Can I use corn flour in place of the gluten free white flour???

We now have to bake quite a lot of gluten free. We've noticed that bread & cakes brown much quicker, and wondered if this is due to the fan oven. We've resolved it perfectly by reducing the temperature another 2-5 degrees, once the crust of the bread or cake is brown we cover it in tin foil, and we bake for 15-20 mins longer on all gf recipes. Hope this helps!
