 Our gluten-free spinach cob loaf is  perfect for summer entertaining.

A spinach cob loaf was a regular feature at family BBQs throughout my childhood, so imagine my horror when I discovered they were off the menu! I quickly set about creating a gluten-free alternative that is now loved and anticipated by the next generation.

We used Simply Wize Gluten-Free Crusty Bread Mix to prepare this recipe. You can purchase it here via our Amazon Affiliate link.
