*I was kindly gifted this product from John McCambridge and the Bread Tin Bakery to try and review but I have not been asked to write this blog post or paid to say anything about this product.
Gluten-free bread is a pretty hot topic amongst us free from foodies, it really does get people talking.
I have personally never had too much trouble finding GF bread that I like. I wasn’t a huge lover of normal bread when I could have it, so I suppose that may have helped lower my expectations of GF bread but I know some people who hate every single free from bread they’ve tried.
A lot of people’s answer to bad GF bread is to make your own. It can be better for you, more affordable and if you’re a good baker, it can be way nicer than shop bought but for me, making bread has never really been an option because although I can bake sweet treats, bread is not my area.
I’ve always known I can’t make bread but have also really wanted to try, so when the PR team for John McCambridge’s Bread Tin Bakery got in touch and asked if I wanted to try their ‘Gluten-Free Bread Kit‘, I couldn’t say yes fast enough.
They sent me one out, I gave it a go and I thought I’d let you know how I got on.
The whole charm with this bread kit is that all you do is add milk, put in the oven and there you have it, homemade, freshly baked bread… could it get any easier?
You can also use any kind of milk you like, so I used soya milk to make my loaf dairy free but if you don’t have to avoid dairy, you can just use regular cows milk.
All you have to do is add 300ml of milk to the dry ingredients in the bag, massage everything together, pour into the metal bread tin provided in the box and pop in the oven for about 40-minutes and you’re done!
Ths bread mix makes a soda bread style loaf which I personally really like, the texture is quite dense and crumbly but very moist and full of flavour, so I really can’t fault it.
The loaf is quite thin, so they’re not the biggest slices but the taste is great and there was absolutely no holes in it whatsoever like most gluten-free loaves, so that is definitely a good thing!
Overall, if you’re like me and want to make your own free from bread but don’t have the baking skills to do so, this is the option for you!
You can buy a 6 pack of these bread kits direct from McCambridge Bread for £24.60.
