A quick post. I dried more cranberries yesterday. If you can get fresh cranberries, I can recommend this method the flavour is incomparable to store bought! I posted a few pics of dinner ideas below too.
A reminder that all recipes I post can be converted to non-keto using the exact same quantities. The flour and sugar ratios are the same.
Do you have 30 minutes to spare to make this sauce?
5 minutes to gather and measure your four and a ¹/⁴ ingredients; amother 5 to melt the buttery sugar together and 5 more to let the butter and sugar foam and boil stirring all the while. 1 more minute to add the cream and then 14 minutes of gentle boiling and stirring and voila! Cool off by dunking your pot in a bath of ice water and then bottle when cooled.
This keto recipe is based on Alton Browns twice baked method and makes 48 sizeable brownies (I used a 40x20cm lined pan) and the recipe can be halved. What magic is this twice baked method that they turn out so moist? It’s a mystery! I also prefer a process of melting sugar into the butter as keto sugar can be very gritty, and this fixes that problem. Just be sure not to let the butter get too hot when dissolving the sugar in the butter.
These Brownies are fudgy goodness; so much so that you might end up cutting them into smaller squares. They are concentrated chocolate bombs, almost like a chocolate fudge dessert. You have been warned!
Summary: melt butter and sugar, mix in dry ingredients and then eggs; bake for 15 min, cool for 15, bake for 35 – 40 min
This was quite an adventure to make. My partner was kindly given some peppers at the community garden by a fellow gardener. My sister gave me a fab Mexican cookbook some time ago that I love and I watched a video of an amazing woman cooking chile rellenos on a wood stove in Mexico. Both inspired me. I hope you’re inspired too!
I like unusual flavour combinations and in my pre-keto days a favourite summer treat was to eat waffles from a place called Waffle Window. There was always a line. This sweet/savoury waffle was my favourite but the Loaded Berry Waffles were amazing too.
I never had fresh berries so for this recipe I used a few plums. They were not quite ripe either! Anyhow, the gist of this recipe is to bake your fruit in butter while you prep the batter. Add the light scone-like topping, flaked almonds, more spices, bake and you’re done! Delicious with a cup of coffee and topped with whipped cream.
I’m beginning to think this is the only muffin recipe I’ll be using for a long while, just varying the flavours and types of nut flour I use. These are fresh out the oven to break an 8/16 fast since late lunch yesterday. Delicious slathered in butter. Just butter! I’m also convinced my favourite keto sugar is the brown version in the image below. Absolutely NO aftertaste, coolness and really tastes good. I’m not sure how I’ll bake keto sponge cakes in future, but honestly, it’s 100% the best flavour.
What we’ll be doing here – melting the butter/sugar mix gently on the stove; mix all the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and in another bowl mix cream/nut milk/buttermilk with eggs and orange zest. Make sure to check you have some spices handy, I used a few or you can just stick with cinnamon. There are some optional things you can leave out, it will absolutely work without the optional add in’s. Makes 1 dozen muffins. Here we go:
If you have some fresh berries and ingredients for fathead dough, then you have the basic ingredients to make this recipe. The process is in three stages. First the filling, which is basically like a light cheesecake filling. Next you mix the dough and while it’s baking you make a quick glaze. This was my first time baking these and it took me a little longer than it should. Next time I will have everything prepped and be more organised. I literally decided to bake these on the fly today when I saw the strawberries needed to be eaten. Here goes!
1x 8oz cream cheese package
1/2 cup ground white keto sugar (if it’s too granular it’s not pleasant)
2 egg yolks
2 tsp vanilla essence
zest of a lemon (an orange would be good too if you don’t have lemons)
