At New World in New Lynn last weekend picking up fresh hot bread for the family, and I came across:
I am deeply suspicious of gluten-free bread, especially when it costs $7.49 for four small buns. BUT when I did the squash test, the bread felt, well, squashy. In a way that gluten-free bread often doesn’t. So I thought “what the heck?” and took a punt.
I pulled the bread apart. Into four, so that I could eat one and freeze three. I ate the first one fresh. It pulled apart off nicely, and cut in half well. I had ham and cheese and hummus and have to say it was delicious! I pulled some off for my husband and he agreed that it was almost as good as “real” bread. As an aside, I do wonder when I will stop considering bread with gluten in it as real bread! Here’s what the rolls looked like split apart:
On day 2, I took a frozen bun out of the oven and heated it up so it was just a little crispy on the outside. I ate it with just some canola spread. Yum.
Would I buy these again? Yes, I would, but probably not every week. They are pricey, but they are also very good. They are the sort of bun that you could easily take on a picnic and eat happily, as opposed to a lot of gluten-free bread product where really? Having it as fresh bread for a picnic is not so nice!
So an excellent experiment and I am very pleased that I bought these. I would highly recommend them.
