Last night’s episode of the Great British Bake Off couldn’t have been greater unless we’d been asked to join the team as their personal tasters.
Because at last, Paul Hollywood, Mary Berry and the five remaining contestants championed flours other than the standard wheat flour – including gluten-free!
And there was not a soggy bottom in sight.
At the beginning of the programme, contestants were challenged to make a loaf of bread using unconventional grains. Christine made a gluten-free loaf and the judges praised it for its texture and taste, A real winner.
The technical challenge was a Mary Berry meringue dessert known as a Hazelnut Dacquoise which was entirely gluten-free.
Coeliec UK writes “It was wonderful to see gluten-free being mentioned on such a popular prime time programme which will no doubt help raise the profile and awareness of gluten-free. We will continue to liaise with the producers to encourage them to consider another gluten-free element in future series.”
