La Brea Bakery Bread

A good, sliced gluten-free bread is the hardest thing to find in the gluten-free world. Many of us just stick to one of the few name brands we see in stores but most of them are never that great. I recently received samples from La Brea Bakery. This is an outstanding product and available to buy online!

 La Brea Bakery is the #1 selling artisan bread company in the country. La Brea Bakery created award-winning gluten free breads that taste different than most other options available.

They offer two outstanding flavors.  A classic white that is soft with a thin crust. Also a multi-grain that is soft on the inside with a nutty crust. You can find more about each option here . 

I have sampled a great number of gluten free sliced bread and this product clearly stands out. Has all the characters a gluten-free eater is looking for. The flavor of both option is spot on tasting clean and full of fresh baked flavor. Quality is spot on, clearly coming from an artisan company and not a mass produced item. Slice size is nice, not to big or small, great for toast or sandwich. No air holes in the slices which is always important and hard to find. Both options have an actual crust that has its own character and is part of the loaf. Texture soft, smooth, fluffy and not chewy at all. Toast’s up great and hold’s up to anything I have put on it yet.

Pecan Bread

I have done something similar but this one is a different base that worked out great. Easy gluten free sweet bread for anyone that has no gluten free flour at home. I actually went home for the holidays and needed some type of bread for breakfast and this is what I came up with.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 Cups of crushed Pecans
1/2 Cup Walnuts
5 eggs ( yolks and whites separated)
1 Cup Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Nutmeg
1 Pinch Salt
1/2 Tbs Vanilla
1 Tbs Rum
2 tsp Baking Powder

Place the eggs in two separate bowls and whisk both well until light and fluffy. Add sugar to yolks and whisk again. Add spices, salt, vanilla, rum and baking to yolks and mix well. Then add the nuts and mix very well. Return to the egg white and whisk until peaks form. Slowly pour fluff egg whites to the nut yolk mix and carefully incorporate it all with out deflating.

Bake on 350 for about 30 to 35 minutes.
