Not having any ingredients in the house to make my own flour or pastry, I decided to use a loaf of GF bread as a trial.
The first thing made was a bread and butter pudding, seen here before baking:
Don't think I will make it again though as the GF person doesn't like custard. Maybe because it was a GF loaf, it didn't suck up enough of the egg and milk mixture so was a mix of eggy bread and omelette in its texture!
Removing crusts from more (falling apart?) slices of bread, I rolled them out and used cutters to make two large and small circles for a mince pie trial. There was no discernable colour change (still grey after cooking) once cooked. Taste wise, again not too bad but the texture was odd, a little like a toasted mincemeat sandwich!
Unfortunately once in the oven, I discovered the sugar still sitting in a bowl:(
Once cooked, they crumbled badly once picked up, tasted awful (not surprising with the lack of sugar and overpowering taste of gram flour) and ended up in the bin. They couldn't even be rescued by some custard:
