All I want for Christmas is …
a greater presence of Well & Good products on the supermarket shelves. *
I thank Irena from Cooking Without Gluten for her recent blog about Well and Good’s Rye-less Rye Bread Mix. I have not used “Well & Good” products before but Irena’s photos and blog inspired me to try this bread mix.
I loved it, my husband had a lukewarm response to it and while my gf teenager had a small piece, I knew that asking him to “like” brown bread was a big ask.
It is a product with complex tastes but it is easy to handle and presents beautifully. Don’t be too alarmed at the rather greyish colour of the mixture because the end product is rich and brown.
A big thank you to Well & Good who have provided me with a complimentary package of some of their white bread products which is much more appealing to my gf teenager.
My first attempt was rated by my gf and non-gf members as a ‘must make again’ bread. It handled beautifully and not sticky at all. I made a hand shaped small loaf and 4 bread rolls with the pack. It was crusty on the outside and light on the inside. Unlike some of the other bread mixes I have made which have to be cool before you can cut them open, I broke open a bread roll while still warm and it was soft and didn’t glug up.
Fresh warm bread and melting butter… we haven’t had that experience since pre – gf days.
The bonus with Well & Good’s Crusty Bread Mix is that it includes the yeast sachet and dusting flour sachet.
My local Coles had the Rye-less Rye and Healthy Life in Stockland Plaza at Aitkenvale stock most of their cake range and the three bread mixes.
