I like making homemade bread. It’s a good thing, because with our allergies, I don’t have much of a choice. However, with my busy schedule, I don’t often get a chance to make my mother-in-law’s wonderful rice bread the way I want to. So, recently, I decided to give this French bread mix a try and was pleased with the results.
Allergy-Related Information: Gluten-Free
Cons: I can’t say there was a con here. It rose nicely, but it didn’t really brown on top much.
Pros: This bread tasted really nice! I was impressed with its moist taste and how it maintained its freshness! I sliced my bread thinly like I would for sandwiches, and they ended up really low in calories (44 cal/slice), so I would probably cut them slightly thicker next time (more like French bread is intended).
Cons: This bread, although very versatile for both sweet and savory uses, it was a little bland.
Pros: I’ve worked with this company’s cake mixes before and I’ve often been impressed with the mastery of moisture and texture. This bread maintained its freshness and moisture unlike most/any gluten-free bread I’ve tried. It held up well, and even at the end of the loaf, when I thought it was getting a little dry, a 30-second run through the microwave, rejuvenated it to almost fresh!
What I Love
I love the light, airiness of this bread. :) It wasn’t thick and heavy and hard, but light and versatile!
What I’d Improve
I think the color (soo white) was a little turn-off-ish and the taste was a little bland. Other than that, it was great!
Overall Rating: A
