Thanks Beverly that sounds devine. I'll have to look for that flavor.
I didn't see it . I'm looking at a raspberry one.

I'm just talking out my hat here. I really have no knowledge of this kind of stuff. I'm just trying to deduce
I don't really know either, I just add liquids until I get the right consistency but I think the biggest thing we've learned is that we can't follow the liquid portion of others recipes, we need to go by how our own flour mix looks when adding the liquids.

I did think of one other thing that could cause a wetter or more to the point gummy texture. You use a different glucommanan powder than I do, and we know that when we use too much glucommanan it can cause things to be gummy and where you used a different one than I did maybe thats what the problem was.

I use the Now glucommanan powder.

Whoa this post exploded since I last logged in! I'll have to try this recipe again and hopefully I can get a consistent result. Have a lot of reading to do!

I am a happier camper today. I re-made the yellow cake recipe. This time I used a new package of Bob's coconut flour. I still didn't use as much water as listed in the recipe, but what works, works. It was very good with real "cake flavor". The texture of this one was somewhere between a light fluffy cake mix and a pound cake. It wasn't gummy!

I am thinking the first cake wasn't successful due to coconut flour that was at the bottom of the package and not adequately stored --perhaps taking in more moisture and making it heavier in weight?


In the pan:


Blackberry "shortcake" with whipped cream topping.

I hope this helps some of you that are having a hard time with this mix. As you can see, after I add the liquid and mix it the batter is thick and can be smoothed down with a spoon. I then microwave just until the top is dry, you don't want to undercook it or it will be mushy and you don't want to overlook it or it will be dry.
Whoa Ginaaaa your batter is so thick! That must be my problem. I've been going for a cake batter consistency, I suppose I'm adding too much liquid. Is that the consistency you have most of the time?

For those of you that are snapping pics, if possible could you maybe also snap a pic of the batter right before you cook it? That would be soooo helpful.

So much wonderful info and tweaks in this thread, you are all so creative!

Ouizoid love the new avi pic! BTW I checked out your Daughters blog, talent definitely runs in the family...She is Gorgeous too!

I Gina's yellow cake today and I think it will be delish! I made a small bundt cake (6 1/2 inch pan) and 6 cupcakes. I put a ganache on them (drizzled on the cake, spread on the top of cupcakes) which I made using a protein fudge recipe in this thread that I just made to the consistency I was looking for, I can't remember whose recipe it is, I'll go back and look and give credit for that, it's very good!

I haven't cut the cake yet, saving for company tomorrow but I did eat a cupcake and it was soooo yummy, wonderful texture! Thank you, Gina, this is a great recipe! I took pics but couldn't get them posted today so I'll add them when I post my pizza pics from Sunday's pizza.

I used Bob's coconut flour, Life Source Foods oat fiber, Body Fortress vanilla protein powder, I used xanthan gum-I don't have any glucomannan yet but am going to get some. I do have very good results using the xanthan though.

I can't believe how many posts there have been since I was here last night - this has to be the most popular thread on the board! Love it!

Ouiz gets the credit for the protein fudge, here's her recipe: Fabulous Protein Fudge*
A spin off of the recent candy recipes. I am finding that melting erythritol opens all sorts of doors!
melt on stovetop til liquid: 1/3 cup Erythritol (takes less than a minute on the stovetop in a small pan over medium heat.) When liquid add 8 drops sweetzfree, 2 Tbs reduced fat cream cheese. stir til liquid (I take off heat so E doesn't caramelize). Add 1 scoop chocolate protein powder and 2 Tbs Hersheys dark chocolate. stir and *add 3 Tbs (or so) vanilla davincis. Stir til creamy. scrape into container and refrigerate. In a half hour or so you will have a beautiful fudge that is oh so satisfying. Did the same fudge with Vanilla protein powder and PB2 instead of cocoa. Delightful! I am not sure of carbs--4? less than 200 calories for whole thing.

I followed her recipe except I added a splash of vanilla extract and used Monin chocolate syrup to get the fudge to a ganache/frosting consistency.

How much water did you use and how long did you bake the bundt? Did you use nonfat milk? What sugar sub did you use? Thx

Diva--thank you for the compliments on my darling Brokeassgourmet, gabi. Her second cookbook is coming out this summer. You can also find her on Amazon and US News and World Report is running an interview with her soon!

Beverly - I used almost 2 cups of water, I started with 1 1/2 cups then added the rest slowly till got a cake consistency which was a little less than the other 1/2 cup. I baked the bundt for 45-50 mins. at 350; the cupcakes I took out at 15 minutes, they were just perfect. I used Nido whole milk powder. My sugar subs were xylitol and EZ-Sweetz - I powdered the xylitol and used about 10 drops EZ-Sweetz. I used 3/4 Tbsp. vanilla extract.

I don't know if anyone else has noticed this but I think this might make a really good mashed potato substitute.

I wash just mixing some up to make bread for my egg salad sandwich and added a little melted butter (about 1/2 tablespoon) and some garlic parmesan seasoning to see how it would alter the taste. Then I tasted the raw 'batter' to see if it needed anything. Dude, add some salt and pepper and you've got mashed potatoes. Seriously!

If that's true then Oiuzoid's next product should be "Better than Taters". LOL Seriously I might try it. You could also do like the Dixie Diners product and add a bit of instant potato flakes.


Didn't get to try out my recipe last night. My husband is battling three kidney stones and I went with him to get a scan. Maybe tonight.

1 c. mix ( no egg white powder & no sweetner)

almond milk


Cream together butter & sweetners light and fluffy, add eggs, cream well.
Put dry ingredients in bowl and whisk to make airy. Combine the dry ingredient ( a third at a time) to the wet ingredients. Add enough almond milk to get a cookie dough. Add chocolate chips. Bake @ 350 for 12 mins.

These cookies are to die for.
Dear Esther: How critical do you think the corn resistant starch is to this? I'm trying cookies again (bc DH is a cookie monster) and I don't have any crs. TIA Caren

As promised here are my pics:










The pizza and cupcakes are awesome. The cake is too, but when I cut it today I found that it was a tad undercooked and the very middle was a little too moist, not gummy, but just too moist. I probably should have left it in the oven for another 10 minutes. I will definitely make it again. Unfortunately, I had company for lunch and that's when I cut the cake, but fortunately I saved the day by serving the cupcakes!! A girl's gotta do, what a girl's gotta do.

For lunch I made an Asian Meatloaf with a recipe I found on-line and changed up a bit for low carb. We had meatloaf sandwiches on Healthified (Psyllium Husk) Rolls and Asian Coleslaw from Vol. 1 LCAF, page 227 (Lisa Marshall's recipe). Very yummy lunch, guests were happy and so was I.

Caren when you made them the first time they were very cakey.

With the corn resistant starch they are crispy like you want. Please take a stab at these . I was wondering if they needed some inulin. Fresh out of the oven they are really good. They freeze well also.they were not cake but had it very close to Toll House cookies

See what you get. I can eat these all day.It gives them a wonderful crumb.You will see a big difference in these and the first ones you made. So good.

See what you get. I can eat these all day.It gives them a wonderful crumb.You will see a big difference in these and the first ones you made. So good.
Thanks for the reply! I will have to order the corn resistant starch. I presume online, as I've never seen it at Whole Foods. Any other awesome cookie recipes you would recommend in the meantime? Caren

Bisquick has a recipe I saw but didn't copy it showed little cups made out of dough and then looked like they were filled with maybe hamburger pizza sauce and cheese and then baked. When my boys were small I did this alot with the cheap rolls in a can I lined the cupcake pans with them and we filled them with different things and baked them. I guess what I am getting to would the BTF mix work for these do you think? Just curious.
Thanks, Susan
