Thank you Tweaker Geek! I have Carbquik on my next order with Netrition. This helps so much.

Are there any other recipes that you like that use Carbquik? If so, would you mind PM'ing me?

Grammy G, look at post #12 in that Carbquik thread. Carbquik Puff Pancakes - Igpar's recipe, a tweak of Tater Head's recipe I believe (also in that thread somewhere). I make these (1/2 recipe) for 3 people and get 2 pancakes each, decent sized ones and it's plenty when there's eggs on the menu also. I usually put a little cinnamon in them too.

They puff up like a HC pancake.

Note - I use half hwc/half water for the milk.

Spent all day yesterday saving recipes, tweaks and info and I am now ready to jump back into lc and try this mix. Do you guys think I could use this instead of carbquik? Like straiggt up like you do for flour?

I saw a recipe for fake carb quick here somewhere. I have it saved. Is that more exact maybe? I have everything I need for btf except glucomannan and egg white powder. I have ordered the now egg white protein powder. Hope that works

Finally made me a chocolate cupcake! It's a tad dry, but I love the texture. I used:

2 tbsp oat fiber
2 tbsp coconut flour
1 tbsp pea protein
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1,5 tbsp tagatose
1 egg
1/2 tsp xanthan
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 c davincis
1/4 c hwc

Nuked for 3,5 minute. It made one HUGE cake!

Finally, I now have glucomannan and eggwhite protein! Can't wait to try and make this again. Perhaps it won't turn out so dry this time.

Anyone else experiencing dryness?

I only get a dry cake if I over-nuke.

I add glucomannan for any cake recipe. It also looks like you would need more liquid with all that fiber.

Ok, thanks the cake took forever in the microwave. It was sticky on top for a long time. I guess that's why it got overcooked inside.

I think I'll make something bigger and use the oven next time.

I think staying small and microwaving works best with BTF. Maybe try slower and longer or covered? You can also try a different protein powder (or use a mixture of 2) or slightly less coconut flour or add more liquid. Baked goods sometimes are flat out better after chilling for an afternoon or overnight.

This mix rocks your socks once you iron out the quirks of your own particular mix blend.

I found that if I removed my cake/biscuits, etc. while they seemed a little underdone, they were much better. That is, if you stick your finger in the center and it's still completely wet, leave it in for a few more seconds. But you can take it out if the center still sinks a little with the finger test. If the center springs back, it's probably overcooked.

No, but I've only used the mix in recipes that are oven-baked (Ouiz's cookies and Gina's yellow cake). I use their baking times and they've been spot on.

Perhaps the dryness was caused by the pea protein I used??? Anyways, I'll try many more recipes now that I have the other correct ingredients. My xanthan is OLD.

no, but I saw that someone used that and one whole egg with success, so I figured I would use what I had on hand.

DANISH DONUTS (AEBELSKIVERS)

DANISH DONUTS (AEBLESKIVERS) SF/GF
Makes 14 donuts
Dry Ingredients:
1 c. Better than Flour Mix
1/2 cup plus 2 tbs. Swerve or sugar sub of your choice
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. combination of nutmeg, allspice, pumpkin pie slice

Combine with whisk or run through sieve. Set aside

Wet Ingredients:
1 egg, beaten
1/4 c. oil
1 1/2 c. buttermilk (*this will not always be the same)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Melted butter or oil
Beat together well then add it to the dry ingredients. If your
batter is too stiff, add some more buttermilk, until you
have a nice soft batter.

Pour a tsp. of oil or melted butter into each aebleskiver opening, get it hot.
Drop batter into each one and fry them on one side until the
raw side has 'set up'. With a toothpick, knitting needle or small
chop stick turn them over for a few minutes. Cooking them through.
Cool. Roll in powdered sugar sub. with cinnamon. Or make a
cream cheese frosting and top with toasted pecans.

*Your weather may be more humid than mine. This will affect
your batter. It needs to be moist like a soft thick batter. Not like
a dough. When you use your buttermilk, use 1 c. and then beat
and add enough to get the desired batter. I had to use more.
These were light yet
moist. We really like them. Next time I shall put a little cooked fruit
in the middle.

Now I want an aebleskiver pan.
My little donut maker appliance will have to do - because that all looks so good, Barbo!

Thanks for the recipe!

OMG

They are really good. Especially the ones I "fried" in oil stove top.
Really moist. TG for buttermilk and oil. lol.

Off to the market for buttermilk and more coconut flour.
I froze the last of the aebleskivers and they defrosted very well in microwave.
I want to put something inside each one. How about those sugar free (almost)
canned apples that people use for pies? Sweeten them up with Swerve, vanilla
and a little cinnamon and drop by tsp. before adding last of batter.

Well NOW we're pretty much talking about an apple fritter - my unobtainable low carb desire. I am in the middle of work I cannot look away from (except to see delicious recipes on these boards) but when I can come up for air, I will be v-e-r-y interested in an apple fritter item.

You talented cooks really spark up our food lives!

Just finished reading all 101 pages. Lots of good information.

Wanted to thank Ouizoid for this amazing recipe and everyone else for tweaking and experimenting.

I just finished my 1st x12 batch original recipe, all was good no issues. This morning I decided to make 2 x12 batches, one sweet and one savory. I was running low on coconut flour so I decided to do 1/2 coconut and 1/2 almond flour, in place of coconut.

I did a sweet cinnamon roll this morning. l am having some gastro issues today. I think I am sensitive to almond flour? Anyone else have that problem? Guess I will go back to 100% coconut. Boo for MY batches!

I have only used almond flour once before.....cheesy garlic biscuits.....months ago....I had issues, but I thought it might have been the garlic.

Is the almond flour coarse enogh that you could run the batch through a wire sifter or plastic mesh strainer and save some of the batch?
I feel bad you have to waste it.
I don't have a problem with nuts but a friend of mine can only eat them if they are cooked...guess that is not the story in your case.

I have a question to those of you who have made this recipe:

Best LC biscuits yet!

1/3 cup Ouizoid's BTF
2 tbs grated cheddar cheese
Heavy Whipping Cream-- enough to make a soft dough

spoon into two rings Be sure to spray everything well with cooking spray so that they won't stick.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes until golden brown on the top.

I have mine in the oven now. I made the flour mix with coconut flour. How much heavy cream did you add? I think I added 1/2 cup or even more! The coconut flour sucked it in I guess! Hope they don't turn out dry or coconutty. I've seen many positive notes on this recipe.
