I don’t know how many horrible gluten free bread recipes my husband had to suffer through before I found a good one but he certainly deserves compensation. Since I began my gluten free life change five years ago I have searched high and low for a rustic loaf of bread that tastes and feels like the traditional bread I used to know and love, and by Jove I think I’ve got it! I am pleased to introduce The Chelsea Loaf!
The most requested baked good that I make!
