Rana’s New Italian Mix Review:

I’ve tried all of Rana’s mixes now and this New Italian Mix is gorgeous. One of my favourite things to bake is bread, can I make my own….can I heck! That’s why I leave all the hard work to Rana’s Artisan Bread. This way I get to breath in the delicious smells of freshly baked bread without the gluten free brick effect! I think you’ll agree the photo I took below does not resemble a brick in any way so yes! She who cannot make bread…can make bread!

The added bonus to Rana’s Bread mixes is that they are free from the top allergens;

Free from: gluten, dairy, egg, nuts, soya, refined sugar

Suitable for vegans
No added fats
Potato starch, brown rice flour*, tapioca flour (modified), sorghum flour*, gluten free oat flour, stabiliser: xanthan gum, sourdough starter (3%), salt, gluten free oats, coconut sugar*, pineapple juice powder.


All of the breads are simple to make but you have to forget what you thought you knew about making bread, there’s a trick to making these loaves and less is definitely more in this case. Very little work is needed on the bread dough, it’s more of a thick porridge consistency, you’re given a little square of baking paper and a oven proof bag to pop your loaf into, the prettier you want your end loaf, the more you’ll need to focus on smoothing the batter before you pop into the bag for the proving stage. I have a bowl of water and a silicone spatula by me when I do this stage and keep smoothing the surface into the desired shape.

And so there you have it, delicious bread made with Rana’s New Italian Mix…obviously not vegan in these images as I’ve added a slab of smoked ham, all that’s missing is a cold glass of Chianti!
