This is it! Bread! Whenever I mentioned I bake bread without flour a panic ensued - "What do you use if not flour?!", when I answered that I use nuts, namely almonds, there was another wave of shock. And then: "do you have a recipe? Gimme!". This recipe comes from the book by Elaine Gottshall "Breaking the vicious cycle" with a subheader "Heal yourself with food", which we ordered from abroad, since it is unavailable here in Czech republic. I admit I wasn't sure how am I going to bake a bread using nuts at first. But the desire to heal ourselves was so great we decided to try it out together. I'm not saying the first bread was perfect, some experience and trial and error is necessary. At the time I would have welcomed some more details in the book. I will try to rectify that here and be a bit more specific. Below the recipe is a comment section so feel free to make use of it, we will gladly answer any question.
- Almond flour - 4 - 5 cups
- Eggs - 4L or 5M
- Butter (coconut oil) - 1/2 cup
- cottage cheese - 2 pcs (400 g)
- salt - 2 tblspns
- caraway - 3 tblspns
- soda - 1/2 tblspns
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 40 minutes / 125°C / 650 W
Crack the eggs into a larger bowl, add melted butter and blend with a stick blender. Then I add hard cottage cheese which I crumble in my hands first and then blend with the eggs and butter. Add salt, caraway and blend again. Finally add 5 cups of almond flour and add soda, blend thoroughly - a word of caution, this final step is quite tiring. I'm not using a home bakery, but I did consider it in the past. The resulting dough shouldn't be too sticky and should be easily possible to pick up as a whole with bare hands. If that's not the case I add a bit more flour and mix again. Shape the dough into a lower loaf (so it bakes more thoroughly) with moist hands to make this process easier, put it on the crisp plate or form and let bake in a preheated combined oven at 125 degrees or 650 W for about 40 minutes. You can bake the bread in a variety of ways: 1. Sweet - which is the above mentioned recipe, you can spread butter or home made jam on it. Maybe use just one tablespoon of salt instead of 2. 2. Onion - Finely cut 3 red onions, sear on oil and mix with the finished dough. 3. Herb - mix your favorite herbs into the dough. I use fresh basil, which I cut into tiny pieces and also add 3 cloves of garlic. P.S.: you can find pictures of the bread in a form, that is also quite possible.
