This fresh fig & walnut wheat free bread is a treat to eat. It’s packed full of nutty flavours from the walnuts, buckwheat and seeds, with a delicious fruity tang of fresh figs. We love to eat this bread whilst it’s still warm from the oven, with a simple dairy-free, soy-free spread melting into it. YUM!
If you are allergic to walnuts, make it with a different seed or nut. If like many with Coeliacs Disease you are sensitive to corn-flour use an alternative flour instead. Now that Aars is gluten-free I am going to be experimenting with all the different gluten-free flours I can make and find! I will keep you posted of any winning combos I discover along our journey. If you are looking for a simple free-from basic bread recipe to start with try our basic gluten-free bread.
There are more and more breads becoming available for those of us who live gluten-free. For households like ours where there are egg and dairy allergies too, it’s wonderful to see more breads being made which are free-from these allergens as well as the gluten. This fresh fig & walnut wheat free bread is something special, which you will not find on the shelves of your supermarket. It is rich in flavour and never lasts long in our home. Those used to eating normal bread also love it. If you do have any left beyond the first day it’s also great toasted. I love it as a tea-time treat toasted with spread on and accompanied by our proper hot chocolate. YUMSVILLE!
I hope you enjoy making and playing with this recipe, we’d love to hear about your experiments and experiences baking with different gluten-free flours.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend baking up a storm!
