I like the look of those pancakes, Nadine.  Twice this week I've tried having a few fresh blueberries with low fat Greek yogurt for breakfast.....they've made my mouth tingle a bit but not produced the severe burning/oral thrush that most fruits were inducing a few weeks ago. 

Thanks for all the recipes/links to food intolerance websites you're coming up with, you're an angel big_hug

wave Sue, I thought you might be interested in this recipe ( & maybe others on this site). It uses winter squash & coconut milk & I know you like both.

Can't remember if the Gluten Free Goddess blog has been mentioned before but this list of her bread and tea bread recipes is on my to do list. The multi grain sandwich bread looks enticing. i_am_hungry

I made the Multi Grain Sandwich Bread today, and it's well worth it. Probably the lightest texture loaf I've made. A very slight cakeyness, but not much. It sliced beautifully and would make a great sandwich. I made a half quantity, and used one of my duck eggs instead of the egg replacer, otherwise, unusually for me, I stuck to the recipe. Definately on my make again list, along with the pumpkin bread and the sandwich wrap, which is my staple.

This looks like a useful recipe, one which could be adjusted for personal taste. I would leave out the sugar for a start. I might leave out some of the spicy curry paste & add more herbs. I might add pieces of bacon or other meats or fish. I would certainly serve it with one of my homemade relishes & a bowlful of cucumber raita.  i_am_hungry

All of you who require this G-F-type of diets may have already seen this website, but I must say, their products look interesting. Long-term health benefits interest me too.

I have started making a form of Bircher muesli for breakfasts, and include linseed, as I know it is good for us, and while surfing, I came across this flaxfarm - they make G-F flaxjacks (ok) which look very tempting ..... but then I've always been drawn towards flapjacks ....

I meant to post these recipes for Socca yesterday as it is a crispy pancake, made with chickpea flour....aka gram flour

Socca (chickpea pancake)

 

Within this article you will find the two links to recipes for them, they are delicious, especially when cooked outside in the south of France but also pretty good inside in the damp, cold UK.  smile

I've made pancakes a few times now with gram flour, I really like the taste of it.  I use it to make cheese or white sauce, too.  That blog link you posted mentions about baking it, too, Nadine - I might give that a go as sometimes I feel like I can't be bothered to stand over the cooker making umpteen pancakes roll_eyes (on my lazy days, obviously big_laugh).

I was recently having a look at this website http://www.dsglutenfree.co.uk  (sorry, have forgotten how to do the proper linky thing embarassed), it's the site for the Dietary Specials range of GF foods.  It gives a list of their products, GF recipes, lots of useful information.  There's an option to register with them, which I did.  This morning I had a pack arrive through the post from them, containing two money-off coupons and a product guide booklet, detailing all their products and, helpfully, where they are stocked.  Our local Morrisons does a reasonable range of their products (the dry goods), our Sainsburys also do, along with a few of the frozen ones too.  I've tried the frozen shortcrust pastry - it rolled out beautifully, did crack a bit on cooking, but tasted nice.

I found it surprising, on going through the list of stockists, that Tesco (the biggest, in your face, world-dominating supermarket yell) stock very few products in the DS range.  Fortunately(!!) there isn't a Tesco local to us tongue

Don't worry about the linky, it doesn't have quite the effect that it used to.  I'm pleased that you've found something to make your food shopping easier.  Yah boo sucks to Tesco!

I'll try that again!

I made a really good GF garlic bread earlier this week. I did it in the bread machine, using the normal (not GF) programme.  It is from gluten free bread and cakes from your breadmaker by Carolyn Humphries. I have mentioned the book before, and find it really useful. I used her sun dried tomato bread recipe, modified to turn it into garlic bread based on a recipe for bread machine garlic bread I used to make. As usual, T = tablespoon, t = teaspoon

3 eggs

9 fl oz buttermilk (I used soya yogurt + an extra t lemon juice)

5 T milk (I used soy milk)

2 t lemon juice

1 1/2 T clear honey--I don't think I used that much

3 T tomato puree (approx!) Recipe calls for sun dried tomato puree, I used regular and added herbs.

1 T olive oil

1 t salt- Too much, I used 1/2 t

13 oz GF flour mix

1 T xanthum gum

1 T active dried yeast

----

I added:

2 t chopped garlic

1 1/2 T dried herbs--I used a mixture of basil and oregano

You can gently heat the garlic and herbs in the oil before adding it.

 

Beat toegether eggs, buttermilk, milk, pour into breadmaker pan

Add lemon juice, honey, tomato puree, oil, garlic, herbs, salt.

Mix flours and gum and add to pan, add yeast on top.

Set machine, basic, medium (700g/1.5lb), medium crust.

Let it cool in machine 10 minutes before taking it out

When cold, store in bread bin for up to 4 days (yes, it does keep!) or slice and freeze.

 

Flour mix

2 oz tapioca flour or buckwheat flour

2 oz cornflour

4 oz potato flour

4 cups rice flour
