Thank You, Baking Fairies!

I’m an absolute swine for playing around with recipes – well the recipes I decide to cut out and keep, or transcribe from different places into my little Recipe folder, or print out and stick on my fridge if I think it’s one I’ll cooked often.  Pretty much all of my cooking is the ‘make it up as I go along’ method – and to be fair it turns out pretty well most of the time!

Take my recipe for Flaxseed Bread.  We found this on the internet a couple of years ago when we first gave up wheat etc, but wanted / needed a substitute for bread.

Original ingredients:

  • 2 cups flaxseed meal
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons sugar equivalent from artificial sweetener
  • 5 beaten eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup oil

(I don’t use artificial sweetener – when I first made this I used 1 tablespoon of unrefined golden sugar, and used melted coconut oil)

It tastes nothing like bread.  At all.  Flaxseed has a definite ‘flavour’…Its texture however does give you that feeling of ‘comfort-food’ Read the rest of this entry »
