I’ve been enjoying schar gluten free brioche rolls lately (available from most large supermarkets). They are really good and super versatile. And as they can be eaten straight from the pack, it’s handy to have some stashed in the cupboard, to enjoy at a drop of a hat! Perfect too, to pack up and take on your travels!
A gorgeous, quick continental breakfast can be achieved in no time with these tasty and squishy rolls. And teamed with a good strawberry jam – what more can I say – fresh coffee all round – white linen tablecloth, a light breeze and sunshine……you get the picture?!!
You may have spotted in a previous post I used the brioche rolls to make a creamy bread and butter pudding, topped with a gorgeous warm butterscotch sauce. So easy to make, looks impressive and tastes delicious! To jazz it up even further I suggested a good quality *vanilla ice-cream, and just wanted to share my favourite one right now – Cheshire farm vanilla ice-cream is gluten free, terrifically smooth and tastes like it did when I was a child.
The brioche rolls can also be transformed beautifully into an indulgent gf iced bun in minutes. Simply slice through the length of the roll, pop in the jam of your choice, fill with whipped fresh cream, and finish with a generous spoonful of water icing spread along the top of the roll (icing sugar with enough cooled boiled water to make a paste, slightly thicker than a thick pouring cream and a drop of *food colouring, lemon or pink works). Allow the icing to set (if you can!). Best eaten on the same day you make them.
I’ve also recently discovered Promise gluten free chocolate chip brioche rolls which are lovely and although this may not be for you, I love them toasted with butter – but you can just grab one and eat straight from the pack! If you love your chocolate, you may even fancy using them in the bread and butter pudding recipe instead of the plain rolls. For good measure throw in a generous handful of *chocolate chips instead of *sultanas or have both. Half the sugar in the original recipe if you choose to do this.
If you have never tried gluten free brioche rolls but enjoyed brioche prior to needing to follow a gluten free diet I suggest you give them a go……think you may well be smitten!
P.S. I mentioned before about Cheshire farm ice-creams. and as well as being home of wonderful homemade ice-cream, they have lots going on there for all the family. It’s in a beautiful area and whilst we have the sunshine and summer hols coming up you may fancy a visit. Maybe enjoy one of their delicious *ice-creams too! I’ve just had a chat with a lovely lady on the phone at Cheshire farm and she confirmed they are able to cater for coeliacs, even offering gluten free cones. As always please run through your dietary needs on the day you visit to ensure all is well for you. Even give them a little call before you visit!
*Check out gluten free, and no ‘may contain’ warning on the pack.
