Reviews for Gluten-Free Autumn Bread
"I love it, but does anyone know if I could use 2 cups of gluten-free all purpose flour instead of the other?"
"This is a yummy recipe! The second time I made this, I also added a shredded apple along with the carrot and I tossed in a pinch of nutmeg with the cinnamon. I've even replaced the brown sugar with a sugar-free brown sugar subsitute with excellent results. Make it into muffins for a great morning treat. Next time I might try a little crushed pineapple as well. It's a very flexible recipe."
"moist, flavorful, and it makes my husband feel a little bit better about not being able to eat gluten or yeast. Even our non-allergic friends rave about this treat!"
"This bread has all the "fall" flavors. Dense.I made mini loafs, and frozen them, since I am the only gluten-free person in the house. Although the others liked them too."
"My fiance and I love love love this recipe!! Taste is wonderful and Yummy! Deffinitely worth making!"
"I made this recipe using the alternative with whole wheat flour and all purpose flour. I also used egg substitute instead of eggs. It was a hit even with my kids! It was very moist and delicious! I will be making this again for sure!"
"The only change was to reduce the brown sugar to 2/3 cup. No one could tell it was gluten free. The bread baked up beautifully brown and moist. Something I am sure to repeat."
