GF Pumpernickel Bread

My husband loves Caraway Seeds and Molasses so he gave a Thumbs Up for this GF Pumpernickel Bread.  Crusty on the outside, soft on the inside and not crumbly like most gluten-free breads.  I don’t have to use a knife or turn my toaster upside down to remove my slice intact.

Note:  The original Nature’s Fairy Recipe uses 3 Tsp of Yeast.  But if you live in higher altitudes, try 2 Tsp and don’t  “Set It and Forget It!”. Definitely don’t leave the house until you’ve safely made it past the proofing cycle, especially if you’re using a Bread Machine.  This picture shows bread made in a 9×5″ loaf pan minus a bit of batter that I lost on the bottom of the oven during proofing !

Gingerbread Pear Cobbler

GF Gigi’s GF Gingerbread Pear Cobbler

I like crunchy Pears.  My daughter likes soft ones.  My husband loves Molasses, especially robust Blackstrap Molasses.  We all love Gingerbread.   There’s something wondrous and comforting about Molasses, Cinnamon and Ginger.

I’m a big fan of Gluten Free Gigi.  You can try her Gingerbread Pear Cobbler using ‘s her GF Flour Blend.  It’s still my old Standby 90% of the time.   I only made a few minor adjustments.  I reduced the Sugar and added texture by adding Green Stevia and Candied Ginger.  Maybe next time I’ll try fresh grated Ginger for extra zing.  It worked well in this GF Pumpkin Pie.
