Gluten free bread kind of feels like this a little bit. Have you tried making homemade gluten free bread? It can be crumbly. It can not cooperate. Often gluten free bread can dry out so quickly!
Homemade vs Store bought Gluten Free Bread
I'm usually a fan of store bought gluten free bread. I've been an advocate for years for people entering the gluten free realm to just eat store bought gluten free bread. Most of the homemade recipes I've tried have been crumbly. Homemade gluten free bread doesn't often hold together well and I've tried it on numerous sandwiches just to have it fall apart in my hands.
Can Microwave Bread Be BETTER Than Store Bought?
When I fell across this recipe from Kirbie's Cravings, there was NO WAY I thought this recipe could work for you with gluten free flour. I tried it and look how beautiful it turned out! It didn't crumble as I took it out of the mug and it tasted amazing! Just like homemade fresh bread right out of the oven with some fresh butter on it.
