I need to learn how to take better food pictures. This is Scrumptious Sandwich Bread from the Gluten-Free Almond Cookbook by Elana Amsterdam.
I had my doubts about this bread. It uses almond butter–if you aren’t sure what that is (I wasn’t!) it comes in a jar like peanut butter. I could only find the chunky almond butter. I’ve been searching for a good GF bread for quite awhile because the only store bought bread I like is Udi’s multigrain bread and until last week I couldn’t get it easily where I live.
So it was experiment time. I put all the ingredients together and poured it into a special bread pan. Yes, I said pour because it looks like muffin batter. And Elana recommends a pan called the magic bread pan because it isn’t quite as big as a regular bread pan. This pan gets the bread cooked all the way through.
The taste was good! The chunks of almonds in the almond butter were a plus. The bread was moist and not at all sweet. Most of the GF breads I’ve tried have a sweet taste that bothers me. Grilled cheese doesn’t work on sweet bread.
I’ve made this three times and even though I can now get Udi’s locally I will continue to make it once a month for a different kind of sandwich adventure.
