LOW CARB BREAD BAKING TIPS


Please make sure your eggs are at room temperature before you attempt this recipe this will reduce the likelihood of the bread tasting eggy if you keep your eggs in the fridge no worries just pop them into a bowl of hot tap water for three minutes.

I like to use a magic whisk because it’s much easier than pulling out the electric mixer don’t worry if you don’t have one I just find it easier.

BUTTER AND COCONUT OIL


ADVERTISEMENT

If your butter is already at room temperature, skip this step if you keep your butter in the fridge then this step is for you.

Cut the butter up and place in a small saucepan over low heat as soon as you see the butter begin to melt take it off the heat and just let it sit you don’t want the butter to be hot because this may cook the eggs when you combine them.

Add the coconut oil once the butter has melted use refined coconut oil if you don’t like the taste of coconut once the butter and coconut oil are melted slowly stream into the eggs while mixing on low.

WHICH BUTTER SHOULD YOU USE?


You can use anything but grass-fed butter is the best. If you want to know more about the different types of butter you can read my guide on butter for some clarification.

DRY INGREDIENTS

Mix the almond flour with the xanthan gum baking powder and salt together in a small bowl till well combined little by little add to the egg mixture till very thick.

OVEN TIPS


Set your fan forced oven to 180 C (355 F) and wait till it’s fully heated if you have a convection oven, drop the temperature by 5 C (20 F) if you are using a glass loaf pan also reduce the temperature glass retains heat longer.

Make sure to line your baking pan with baking paper if you are not using a silicone tray smooth out the top surface of the bread with a spatula or bowl scraper this helps keep the bread together whilst in the oven.

I always set my timer for 10 minutes less than the recipe’s time because all ovens are different once small cracks appear on the top and the bread turns a golden brown color test with a toothpick or bamboo skewer right into the center of the bread if it comes out clean the bread is done if not you can bake an extra ten minutes before checking it again.

COOLING TIPS


ADVERTISEMENT

Let the bread cool on a cooling rack so that all the sides cool equally cooling it on a bread rack will significantly reduce the eggy taste also sometimes if you let the bread sit on a normal bench top or chopping board the bottom section of the bread will turn a different color.
