Peachy's Pantry Panel just had to try this out, and the panel comments:

Pamela's bread mix is so delish! How can I resist! You can make bread and pizza crust that is to die for. I love that it gluten-free, this way I can make bread or pizza crust that everyone can enjoy. So the other night, I had my friends come over and made a few pizza's. They all couldn't believe that the crust was made from a gluten-free mix. It's easy and simple. It simply tasted amazing! It can trick you into thinking it does have wheat in it!

I have to admit I was somewhat skeptical about the idea of gluten-free bread, as after all, isn't gluten what makes bread what it is?  Can you have one without the other?  And it's with this sense of doubt that I set out to execute the recipe for bread that's enclosed on the package of Pamela's Products' Gluten-Free Bread Mix.  The recipe is extremely simple to follow and the ingredients are few, everything outside of the mix itself can be found in your average kitchen.  After following the instructions closely (a must, as there are subtle differences from baking "regular" bread), out popped a loaf of bread that was deliciously chewy, satisfying, and possessing a character to it that's missing from your average store-bought loaf of bread that tastes like, well, just flour and not much else.    This mix is a must for the Celiac Disease sufferer out there who misses bread and the various gluten-laden products that must be avoided.  Also printed on the package are recipes for pizza crust, bagels and pie crust,  thus expanding the repertoire of gluten-free dishes that can be created and enjoyed.

I love bread.  One thing I love more than bread, is making it myself.  When I saw this bread mix, I couldn't wait to try it out.  During the time the bread was baking, it filled my house with the most wonderful aroma.  That aroma was matched by some of the best tasting bread I have ever had.  I was surprised by how good it was because of it being wheat and gluten free.  I have a few friends who have to be on a gluten free diet and I've told them about this bread.  Of all the ways I've tried this bread after I was done baking it, my favorite way to enjoy it was lightly toasted with some honey drizzled on it and a cup of hot tea.
