Don't quite no what went wrong,left out the salt. Mix was very dry even though i followed these intructions to the letter, am a bit new to all this, any advice would be great.(will probably use it for a mooring block)

Oh plus for those struggling with it not cooking, I've only ever used silicon loaf mould which seems to distribute the heat better and have not had any problems with it not cooking.

Such an easy and quick loaf to make to add to a summer salad - my toddler loves it too. I use some of the oil from the tomato jar instead of separate oil which adds to the tomato flavour. Great recipe, worth a try.

I am just sorry I wasted the ingredients I used... Had to throw away, worst bread ever, and I have to say that my baking (gluten free or not) always receives a great deal of compliments, but I had to hide this one!

Not bread as you know it..although okay with a ploughmans..will try something different next time..

I found this very easy to make, and very tasty. I spread a little olive oil on top and made it into a ploughman's (cheese, pickle, lettuce, tomato, cucumber), which was gorgeous. I did change the recipe a bit though after viewing other people's comments. I did not add any salt, I used the oil the sundried tomatoes were in instead of olive oil, and I also used a bit extra flour so it wouldn't be too moist. My only complaint is that mine didn't rise!

I've made this bread today but it has stayed quite wet. Anyone got any ideas please. The taste is great and I would like to perfect it as it's so hard to find nice wheat free bread. This was very easy to do.

Have found it is better if made with Doves bread flour plus yeast thereby omitting the baking powder and is easier to cook IMHO. As a coeliac I use a special yeast but if you are OK with wheat then may I suggest normal strong bread flour and yeast. In each instance yoghurt (plain) plus 150ml warm milk and one large egg should make baking easier and removing the need for the high egg content, baking powder and large volume of milk suggested abov.However your bread needs 3hrs to rise before considering to cook !!

I've never baked bread before,and tried this recipe.It was really quick and easy to make and the bread turned out fine. Served it to family and they loved it. Too much egg for our liking though and want to know if I can reduce the amount of eggs used.
