I recently started reading The Londoner, which is a blog written by a woman, Rosie, who lives in, you guessed it, London!
For anyone who knows me, you know that I am minorly (or majorly) obsessed with anything and anything British. Her blog posts are filled with wonderful sites and fantastic looking eats!
She recently posted a recipe for gluten-free, low carb bread. And I love bread, so I figured I’d give it a try, as it seemed pretty easy.
I made my long-time friend (seriously, 11 1/2 years…) and soon to be room mate, Kristen help me. As I’m a terrible baker, and she’s fantastic.
For this recipe, you need:
1 cup of flax meal ( I used ground flax seed)
3 tbsp water
1/2 cup ground almonds (I got slivered almonds and ground them in the coffee grinder)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 loaf tin
Preheat oven to 400F
Crack the eggs into a bowl, add the water
Beat the eggs
In a separate bowl, combine flax, almonds, baking powder and salt. Toss it all together.
Pour into the tin and Bake for 20-25 minutes (I recommend 25 minutes!)
It got a bit stuck….
We made a lovely bruschetta with it! And ate this and Parmesan Chicken!
This is definitely not a typical bread texture, Kristen remarked that it was along the lines of corn bread, but it was good! I’ll definitely be giving it another try!
