And Pixy Said, Let There Be Bread...

And then Pixy said, measuring cup, measuring cup...  Aha!

And then Pixy said, are you sure these proportions are right, bread mix packet?  That looks more like cake batter than bread dough.

And then Pixy said, what the hell, the worst that can happen is I end up with no bread, which is where I've been since 2010.

Found some inexpensive packaged gluten-free bread mix* at the supermarket, so I dug out my old bread maker thingy and it's whirring away right now.  I lost the instruction book long ago and I'm expecting this first run to be inedible, but it's worth a shot.

Update: Yep, inedible.  Definitely too many waters.  Will try again with fewer waters.

* In case you're wondering, tapioca starch, potato flour, chick pea flour, and rice flour.  There's no real substitute for wheat, unfortunately.

Instead of screwing around with potato flour and chick pea flour and all that, why not just go with cornbread?

You don't make sandwiches with it, of course, but it's tasty on its own, or with melted butter.

2 Despite the name, cornbread is typically 50/50 corn meal and wheat flour.  So unfortunately it would kill me.  (Albeit very slowly.)

I'd like to have a sandwich. sad

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
