The City Cafe Bakery at 701 S. Carson Street is the producer of this fine GF product. They make a whole host of gluten-free treats, including sandwiches, scones, and muffins. They bake the bread on-site, and they sell it by the loaf. Loaves come sliced, frozen, and unlabeled. My stepmother Penny helped me vet the bread, and she said that she tasted corn flour. I called to get the list of ingredients, and corn starch is definitely in there. The bread also contains eggs and milk.
Penny noted that the bread is much lighter than most GF breads. In fact, I think it's the lightest, softest bread that I've had since going on the gluten-free diet. It has a very good texture, and it is more flexible than most breads I've tried. It is similar to Angeline's "Just Right White Rice Bread" that I reviewed in my post "Loaves for the Starving," although it is not quite as sweet (which I think is a plus).
The only quibbles I have are:
- They only sell the loaves frozen.
- The bread has a bit of a starchy aftertaste.
- The slices are a bit on the small side.
- The bakery ran out of their GF scones and muffins so I couldn't try any.
- It was difficult to get the list of ingredients, but they finally did call me back.
Overall, this is a very good bread! I'm relieved that it's available for my enjoyment for whole loaves or for sandwiches in the cafe whenever I go to Carson City.
