Gluten-free vegan dairy-free egg-free French Bread Recipe | Book of Yum. It makes me mad when I hear relatively recently diagnosed Celiacs talk about how they haven’t had pizza or bread since diagnosis… or that when they have had it, they didn’t enjoy it. It is not that I am mad at them- far from it! No, I’m mad at a society that equates bread products with gluten, and mad at companies that create allergen-free bread completely lacking in taste or appeal that scar these poor souls so dreadfully that they vow off bread entirely. Oh, I know there is a school of thought that says breads are over-rated, and what we all need to do is go back to the basics.

Protein, Vegetable, Fruit, crunchy grain that looks like bird seed (preferably boiled). I’ve finally gotten to the point with my darling baby Yum where I can have enough ingredients to make some really tasty baked goods. We took this loaf on a car-picnic to the drive-in movie with Baby Yum. <A HREF=" Could This Baker Solve the Gluten Mystery? The artisan as scientist: baker Jonathan McDowell in the Bread Lab Photos: Tom Philpott Washington State University's agriculture research and extension facility in Mount Vernon, about an hour due north along the Puget Sound from Seattle, looks at first glance like any recently built academic edifice: that is to say, boring and austere.

On the outside, it's surrounded by test plots of wheat and other grains, as well as greenhouses, shrouded in the Pacific Northwest's classic gray skies and mist. Inside, professors and grad students shuffle through the long halls, passing quiet offices and labs. Yet one of those labs is not like the others—or any other that I know of, for that matter. When you look down the length of the room from the back wall, you see two distinct chambers, separated by long, adjoining tables: gleaming chunks of impressive-looking machinery to the left; flour sacks, mixing bowls, a large, multileveled oven to the right.

Grand Central Cinnamon Rolls. Piper Davis, co-owner of Grand Central, says this is the bakery's oldest, most-beloved item and that it is never taken off the menu.

The whole-wheat and eight-grain cereal in the dough, and the absence of frosting, eases any guilt over this breakfast indulgence. The recipe also calls for currants, smaller and more palatable when baked than more common raisins. To make pecan sticky buns, Grand Central simply leaves out the currants, instead adding toasted pecans and caramel to the bottom of the pan. Davis says pre-fermented sponges (the starter or mother dough) give yeasted dough better texture and flavor. If using freshly milled whole-wheat flour, you may need to adjust the liquid, depending on how wet or dry the dough is. Just be sure to form the rolls the day before baking to allow them to sit, refrigerated, overnight.

To make sponge: In a bowl with high sides, whisk or beat all ingredients together until smooth. Lightly brush a clean, large bowl with oil or butter.
