One of the biggest complaints I, and many others, have about Keto Bread is that it tends to taste too eggy. I’ve been on a mission to eliminate that and discovered that, with my new bread machine, I can bake #KetoFriendly, #EggFree, loaves of bread.
Of course, buying a new bread machine means yet another tool I need to find a home for in my #StorageChallengedKitchen. But #ThisGirlLovesToEat, so I’ll find a corner somewhere. 😉
My machine is a Cuisinart Convection Breadmaker and does have a low-carb setting, so that is a bonus.
Keto Bread Machine White Bread
- 2+1/2 tsp Bread Machine Instant Yeast
- 1 + 1/3 Cup 90º F Tap Water
- 2 TBLS Sugar
- 1/4 Cup Neutral Oil (Vegetable or Canola) – unless you want the flavor in your bread, then you can use Olive Oil (I like to use a blend of Olive-Avocado Oil)
- 3 tsp Vital Wheat Gluten
- 3 Cups/300 g (weigh it if you can) Carbalose® Lo-Carb Flour (I have used Bob’s Paleo Flour as well)
- Salt or other seasonings as desired (I always add a bit of salt)
Using a paper towel, lightly oil the inside of your bread machine pan and the kneading paddle. Plug in your bread machine (but do not preheat), add your yeast, sugar and warm water to the pan and close the machine lid. Set a timer for 12 minutes to allow your yeast to activate (start bubbling).
As soon as your yeast is nice and foamy, add (in this order) your oil, the wheat gluten, any spices you are using, and the flour.
Close your lid and set the machine to Low Carb setting (if it has one) or bake at basic mode for a 1.5 pound loaf.
**Tip: To keep your loaf from having a hole in the middle, when the rise cycle starts, remove the paddle and center your loaf back in the pan without handling it too much.
Allow loaf to cool in the pan then slice into 12 slices.
