Gluten-Free Cheese Bread!

This is a version of a batter-style, gluten free bread modified from Gluten Free on a Shoestring. Simple to come together, flavourful and aromatic! Just the perfect pairing to a hot bowl of soup!


The only hard part is waiting for the bread to cool before slicing a piece.

Can't say we waited...
