Baking / Pizza
« on: November 28, 2020, 04:38:12 PM »
TMB, I know you are on the great pizza hunt. I’ve mostly given up, decided I’ll eat real pizza occasionally and skip the faux stuff.

I came across this guy while looking for bread and burger bun ideas. His recipe is pretty damn good. It’s adopted from another chief, Diedre, . He also explains quite well why honey (or sugar) is eaten up by the yeast, in one of his videos. Here is his pizza crust, I’ve not made it yet but will soon, as the bread is REALLY good. I’m certain it will be way better than Fathead dough or Cauliflower

Hamburger Buns (KetoBakes copycat)
8 buns

185g Almond flour
30g Psyllium musk
25g Oat fiber
1 Tbs baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp xanthan gum
1 pack active dry yeast
1 cup water
1 cup egg whites
1/4 cup vinegar
1 tsp honey or maple syrup (no carbs will remain)

Activate yeast in honey and a few Tbs of water
Mix all dry ingredients
After yeast proofs, 5 min or so, add egg whites, water and vinegar and mix
Add dry to wet, mix for a minute with beater.
Divide into 8 buns, on parchment lined pan
Bake at 350° for 55 min.
Cover with foil after 30 min to keep from getting too brown
Allow to cool completely.

First try. I used almond flour, psyllium husk, oak fiber, in proportion to some other recipes I found. Then added a teaspoon of xanthan gum, salt and baking powder. I also used some active dry yeast, bloomed with a small amount of honey (no carbs remain after). I achieved the same weight of dry as KetoBakes package.  I used the same amount of egg whites, water and vinegar as the packaged directions.
Compared to the KetoBakes product, these puffed up considerably more, but they also collapsed out of the oven.
I am NOT and baker, so don’t know what exactly what to adjust for different results. Perhaps one of you bakers here have a suggestion?

I think I’ve tried just about every Keto burger bun recipe I can find. I recently came across Keto Bakes


So gave it a try. After seeing the price and looking at the list of ingredients, I was prepared to give this a big thumbs down, but these are the best buns yet. Around $15 for 8 small buns though!  There are tons of recipes on line with very  similar ingredients. I have all the ingredients in the pantry. Would like to to figure out the recipe.

Maybe one of you more talented bakers can figure it out? Nothing exotic, but I was just amazed at how good these are.

To this just added egg whites, vinegar and water. The dough was VERY wet.

What’s the carb count?

Aargggg...I wrote that too soon. At the one hour mark I was unchanged, at the 2 hr mark, I spiked up to 180, so same problem as with the bread. I’ve been eating these for a number of years! 😕

I just did the same test with Mission Carb Balance Flour Tortilla. 19g total with 15g fiber. Good news, it had NO impact on my blood sugar.  I do Keto (Actually lazy Keto I guess) mainly for blood sugar control, not weight loss, so this is important. I don’t know the effect on Ketosis??

I’ve been enjoying Franz Zero Carb White bread for a few months. Each slice is advertised as 12g carbs and 12g fiber. The other day I was watching on of my favorite YouTube channels, Serious Keto, where he ate some supposedly zero carb bread and took blood Glucose measurements, the results were terrible. I decided to do my own test, I am Type 2 diabetic (well controlled with oral meds) my beginning blood glucose was 114, I then ate a grilled cheese sandwich, with two slices of this “zero carb” bread. At the 30 min mark, it was 134, so up 20. At the 1 hr mark, it was 165, so up 51 in total 😬 After 2 hrs, it was back to  130. So much for Zero Carbs! Here is a link to the Franz web site, listing the ingredients,                                                                                                                           https://franzbakery.com/HTML/productView.html#category=breads.premium&id=breads.premium.keto

I’m going to repeat this test with Mission Carb balance tortillas that I’ve been using for a long time, I fear similar results.

What Lavash bread are you using? I can’t find any that less than 20g per serving.

I would just like to verify the claim of carbs disappearing. That said, 2 teaspoons of Maple Syrup (not honey) for 8 buns is pretty minimal, so???

I saw a few of your recipes with a starter, using yeast and flour. The flour has sugars the feed the yeast. This recipe is using only yeast and a small amount of sugar (honey) It rises crazy.

This is the statement from the web site:

*Sorry for the caps, but before you scream sugar remember that the yeast will feed on such sugar to emit carbon dioxide and make your bread rise, so it doesn%u2019t affect the carb count. And yes, this pure science.

Here is the full recipe, no wheat flour:

I recently read a recipe that called for yeast and honey. They claimed the yeast eats the sugar, and releases carbon dioxide gas, and there are no carbs left. I’m trying to verify if this is really true but not having a lot of luck.

Anyone heard of this, is it a scientific fact?

Thanks, will have to check it out.  How does it taste and how much does it cost?

Sorry, don’t know the cost, my wife gets it. There are 2 loaves to a package.

It tastes great, like regular white bread, perhaps a tad softer
