Just made my first Carbquick biscuits...
They didn't rise like I hoped they would (I could have rolled them too thin), but they are delicious! :up:Does anyone have any favorite recipes that they use the Carbquick for?

Have you seen the Carbquick sticky?

Hi Shopgirl, The post she's linking is my post, and I still love it. There have been quite a few other bread recipes posted since, but I like this one still, and make it a couple times a week, at least. It has a very bread-like consistency IMHO, and I've never had a problem with the taste of Carbquick, as some others here have.

I do add about 1/2 teaspoon baking powder to the mixture now (there was discussion of whether or not it was necessary, but I found that I prefer adding it.) Most of the time, I make the version with a shake or two of nutmeg, and just a tad of Splenda. After it's cool enough, I slice it laterally, into 3 or 4 slices, and then pop it into the toaster.
It toasts up really well...and tastes great with SF jam of your liking. Makes good french toast too...using egg+tch of cream+tch of daVinci's sf vanilla syrup. And I've also made toasted cheese sandwiches with it.

My new microwave is stronger, and cooks it in about 1 min, 15 sec. Suggest you check it at that point--if you see that the top appears "baked", without a gooey spot in the center, it could be done enough. You can give it another 15 sec and check it again without any harm to it. Over-cooking causes it to dry out...but it also needs to get "dry enough". The end texture should not be gummy at all. I turn it out upside down and allow it to steam a bit--it continues to cook for a short time--and will dry out the bottom if you wait a minute. I know this makes it sound difficult--but it isn't--just the right timing is all.

I hope you'll give it a try...and that you like it. You might have to give it a couple tries to get the baking time just right...to still have it be moist, but not over-cooked and dry.
It's been a big help to me in this WOE. Hope this helps...Jennywren

Thank you SO much everyone! I can't wait to try your recipe, Jennywren. Bread is the hardest thing for me to give up, and having even a small amount of something like bread is a real treat on this lifestyle.
