I’ve had a packet of Rana’s Artisan Bakery Winter Spice Bread Mix in my cupboard for a while now, I keep looking at it thinking ‘ooh, I really must make that’ and then the time passes by. This is what happens when you get in a baking, cooking, Groundhog Day rut!

Thanks to Rana sending me two packets of their limited edition Winter Spice Bread Mix I broke the spell today AND I’m giving you the chance to break your rut too by GIVING AWAY the two gifted packets to TWO lucky readers! Believe me you won’t be disappointed. I’ve baked with Rana’s mixes before, there’s the delicious New Italian Mix and the Bold Buckwheat Mix both of which were delicious and so simple to make.

When making many gluten free breads you have to forget everything you knew about making ‘normal’ breads. With Gluten free it’s more of a case of making a think cake-like mixture, little need to proving and far less fuss. As with all the Rana mixes the preparation time is 10 minutes, let me say that again TEN MINUTES! now that’s my kind of bread making yes siree!

You literally tip the packet contents into a bowl, add the recommended amount of warm water and stir, then leave for 5 minutes, then stir again. The only bit that can be a wee bit fiddly is shaping the dough into a loaf on the supplied baking paper sheet. But my top tip here would be to use a silicone spatula that you keep dipping in a bowl of warm water to help you smooth the dough into your desired shape.
