World Day of Bread & National Celiac Awareness Month - A Gluten Free Bread Baking Bonanza

I am hosting my first gluten free bread baking bonanza in honor of the World Day of Bread on October 16th and for the National Celiac Awareness Month, which is the month of October.

Starting on September 10th and going through October 1st, bake any kind of original gluten free bread recipe or an adaption of another recipe (with credit given), take a picture (if you can), and write a post about it on your blog.

Once you are done, send your name/online name and the URL of your post to me at glutenagogo at gmail dot com. If you are so inspired, feel free to participate more than once. I will post a roundup of all the entries after the bread baking bonanza ends.

For those who want to have a charitable bread giving party for the World Day of Bread or for National Celiac Awareness Month, you will have a wide variety of luscious breads to choose from and time to plan your get together for the month of October.

Mrs. Naramor - What kinds of breads qualify for the gluten free bread baking bonanza...well anything from quick breads (i.e. loaves & muffins that use baking soda, baking powder for leavening), yeast leavening (i.e. bagels, pizza), sourdough, to steam leavened (i.e. popovers). Then there are all the wonderful unleavened breads you could try your hand at such as chapati, injera, lefse, lavash, matzo, papadum, and tortillas. If you need some more ideas on what types of unleavened breads there are around the world, check out this link at Wikipedia. (

Does this help?
