Almond/VWG/Starter dinner biscuits
« on: March 01, 2019, 01:34:58 PM »
I made these last night just to try and see if I could make a good dinner type biscuit

1-     cup almond flour
1/4-  cup starter
2-      Tbs  VWG
1/2-   tsp baking powder
1/2 -  tsp salt
3 oz -  VERY hot water

Combine all together except the water and stir till mixed well,  add the water as you stir (slowley) till all 3 oz is in the bowl till all is wet.   Let rest in a warm spot for 40 mins or so then work/kneed for a min to get air into it then roll out and cut into biscuits then bake. 

I did these at 370 for 10 mins, turned over after 6 mins to brown the other side then let them go the other 4 mins.  I think I cooked them to fast since they were still doughy a little inside.  Next time I'll cook at 325 for ten mins then flip






Were they good??  Yes not bad but still need to work on them.   Like most Almond flour recipes the taste is good BUT make sure you let ANY dough you make with Almond flour or Coconut flour have time to HYDRATE!   Wheat flour is one thing but these flours are another when it comes to moister  ;)

I cannot see them.  Using Microsoft  Edge on Windows 10 PC.  Same problem using Firefox, so not browser specific.  It does not show them as "blocked".  I think that you have not set the correct "share" settings for the folder or album in Google.  I cannot see them even after I log into Google Photos, so Google must think they are "priovate".

Yup, now I can the one showing the dough ball in the bowl.  The placeholders for the others seem to be gone now.

This is definately something I would like to try. But 1 dumb question for you.
What is starter?
Thanks in advance for the patience, Randy.

No dumb questions...

A starter is flour and water mixed then fed every day to keep it going.   I mixed 3 Tbs of water (bottle so there nothing in it) and 3 Tbs flour put it in a bowl with a cover and let sit over night.  Next day remove half of it and add same a amount pf flour and water (say 2 Tbs of each) then mix that into the bowl and let it sit keep doing this for a few days before using.

Your starter should rise double or so the next day before you feed it.   There are natural yeast in the air that will make it grow.

Okay, thanks Tommy. Wasn't expecting starter/yeast as there is no sugar in this recipe. Maybe thats where the vwg comes in. Guess I'm about to start learning again. Randy.

The VWG helps with taste and texture.  But your starter needs to be made wioth plain white flour
