Up's and Down's

After a promising start to the day yesterday, Abby crashed after lunch. She just feels miserable. After working so hard to feel better, this must be twice as terrible for her. The rash settled on her leg, but she felt so terrible she did not care.

It always leaves me feeling so helpless to comfort her. Incredibly frustrating.

Which left me to bake all day! LOL Sara got a beautiful loaf of regular raisin cinnamon bread. Abby got a new gluten-free white bread that I think may be our new favorite! I also "tried" to make Abby some caramel "puffed millet/rice" balls instead of popcorn balls. What I found was that Lyle's golden syrup is amazing stuff.. I probably should have used a little honey or molasses with it(so the substitution guides suggest)and instead of butter I used coconut oil. When I poured that goodness over the puffed rice and millet and then waited, I couldn't get it to form into balls. So, plan B! I threw it on greased cookie sheets and baked it for 5-7- turned out like cracker jacks! Not as great as holiday "faux popcorn" ball, but delicious anyway!

Ingredients (for 2-lb. breadmaker BB-PAC20):
1-1/2 cups (360mL) milk(any but rice milk-rice milk is not good for gf yeast breads)
3 large eggs, beaten
1 Tbsp. (14mL) apple cider vinegar
3 Tbsp. (39g) vegetable oil(grapeseed or liquid coconut)
3 Tbsp. (60g) honey(if you want a sweeter bread add an additional 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar)
1-1/2 cups (222g) brown rice flour
2-1/3 cups (327g) potato starch

1 Tbsp. (8g) xanthan gum( I use guar gum equal amount)
1-1/2 tsp. (8.4g) salt(pink himalayan)
1 Tbsp. (8.5g) active dry yeast(red star quick rise because it is corn free)

This recipe was developed for the Home Bakery Virtuoso™ and Home Bakery Supreme® Breadmakers (BB-PAC20/BB-CEC20/BBCC-X20). Adjustments may be required for baking this bread in other models of the Home Bakery.
In a large bowl, mix the flour ingredients (brown rice flour, potato starch mix well with a whisk.
Make sure the kneading blades are properly attached, and add the liquid ingredients (milk, beaten eggs, apple cider vinegar, grapeseed oil and honey).
Add the flour mixture from step 1, the guar gum and salt to the baking pan. Make a small indentation in the flour with a spoon, and place the yeast there. Make sure that the yeast does not touch the liquid and salt.
Place the baking pan in the bread machine- I used the gluten free cycle 2 pd loaf, and medium crust.

press START. When add beeps sound, use a rubber spatula to push down flour(from my pic you can see I did not do a good job!) that may be stuck to the side. Please be careful if the kneading blades are moving.
Once the bread completes baking, remove immediately onto a cooling rack.
Allow the bread to cool. Slice and serve.
