    Hi Rosemary,
    Half a teaspoon of salt should do it.
    Let us know how you get on!

    We would recommend using the Doves Farm Yeast and Dove Farm Gluten Free Flour, see for the recipe, no dairy used either.

    Maybe increase a little the yeast amount of 1 tsp and leave it to rise at a warm temperature. We used dove farm as it has caroub flour in it and that helps the texture, Odlum doesn't have that.

    Hi, I have followed the recipe and tried it 3 times but I just cannot get the bread to rise enough. Any tips where I might be going wrong?

    do you have any recipes for wheat free, gluten free and dairy free as my daughter loves bread but has a severe allergy to it. I've tried your recipe above which turned out delicious but still affected her badly.
