Domata Living Flour's The Very Best Batter Bread

Let me get this out of my system now...OMG OMG OMG - I just ate a piece of  bread and it tasted glutenous!! It was warm with melted margarine - heaven...heaven I say!! Okay, I think I'm good!

I was given the Domata Living Flour to try by Hy-Vee (West Kimberly) to test the product to see how I felt it performed. Well let me tell you - it is fantastic. I was a little skeptical when the package claims it can be exchanged "cup for cup" in regular recipes.
I tried to make a loaf of bread in my bread machine last night and it was a complete failure! The loaf was literally white and two inches tall and HARD. Even my dog wouldn't eat it (always a bad sign).

I emailed Domata Living flour today to see if I could get some guidance. I got not one email, but several emails asking me questions and giving me guidance. They weren't automated or sent from some random person, they were sent from the CEO of the Company!! I was shocked. She offered to call me and help me figure out the problem, unfortunately I was at work, but I have never experienced the awesome level of customer service I received from Iris at Domata Living Flour. Even if I didn't like their product (but I do) I would patronize them for the fantastic service.

I made a new loaf of bread tonight from their site. She told me none of the recipes started out GF on their site. She suggested I try the  Batter Bread recipe on their site. I was skeptical, but said well I have to do a review on this flour anyway I might as well give the bread a shot.

I love it!! I actually took pics of it, not because of the blog, but because its the first loaf of bread I have ever made from scratch!!! No mix! Yea -- that's how I loaf?

I got the 4lb Bag of Domata All Purpose Flour at "my Hy-Vee". It sells for $12.59 for a 4lb bag, which seemed really high to me, however it already has xathan gum added to it, so you don't have to buy it separate. At this price I'd normally cringe, but if I can have fabulous baked goods that tastes "real" I will pay it! So worth it!!

Thank you to Hy-Vee for allowing me the chance to try the product and a huge Thank you to Iris at Domata Living flour for all your guidance and help.

  1. I love this flour. I use it to make cookies, pie crust, chicken and dumpling soup, pizza, chicken nuggets, and all sorts of other things. My grandparents-in-law introduced me to the original owners several years ago, and I've been using it ever since.
