I’ve been really trying to make my own food more, which means I’ve been in the kitchen making my own recipes or following others in order to cut down on the amount of processed and pre-packaged food I have to buy! This takes a little bit more time, obviously, but I love getting good results and I feel good when I get to eat something I’ve made myself.
The first thing I ever tried making was Keto Bread. This means that it’s Ketogenic friendly bread; since I like to eat more fats than carbs I decided to try making this. I’ve attempted making bread in the past. When I say attempted you should believe it becauseoh hot damn did it turn out bad. I’m not what you would call a “precise” baker, I prefer to loosely follow the directions and the measurements. I know, I know you’re not supposed to do this! I just am either lazy or undisciplined, I’m not sure which.
This Keto Bread, turned out better than I could have expected though! There are a few tweaks I’ll make next but hey, for a first attempt it went pretty well. I got the recipe from Keto Connect.
Recipe and Supplies
1 Blender or Mixer or Food Processor, 2 Bowls, Bread baking Pan 6 Eggs,
1.5 Cups Almond Flour, 3 Tbs Baking Powder, 4 Tbs Butter, A Pinch of Salt,
1/4 Tsp Cream Of Tarter (Not Necessary)
1. Preheat the oven to 375. Separate the egg whites and egg yolks into two different bowls. Add the Cream of Tartar and whip it up with the mixer until stiff peaks are formed.
2. Throw everything else into the other bowl in mix that up with your mixer. The mixture will thick, it’ll get thinner when we add the Egg White Mixture too it.
3. Pour half of the Egg White Mixture into the Egg Yolk mixture. Mix it real good. Then add the second half of the Egg White Mixture but only gently fold the two mixtures together. This is where the bread gets its volume from.
4. Grease the Baking Pan well!!! I didn’t grease mine well enough and it stuck to the pan, so it’s a wee bit lopsided but it’s fine and still delicious. Bake itfor 30-35 minutes. Then do the tooth pick test in order to make sure that it’s fully done.
I was thinking about this, and maybe it’s because I didn’t add the Cream of Tartar, but the bread could use a little flavor. I think next time I’m going to add a few different spices to jazz up the bread a bit! Maybe some Onion and Garlic Powder or fresh herbs. There are so any options!
