This ones for Scott123 - Moc Entenmanns New Jersey Isomalt Crumb Cake

I am marking this still experimental till I have made it twice again....But

I am pretty certain I won't be changing much if anything.

Moc Entenmanns New Jersey Isomalt Crumb Cake

1/2 c. Carbalose
1/2 c. Carbquik
2 T. wheat protein isolate 5000
2 T. resistant wheat starch
1/2 c. granular Isomalt
1/4 t.salt
1 t. baking powder

Mix together above ingredients till combined.

Add 5 T. oil (Crisco canola)
1 c. equivalent liquid splenda

Wisk together till combined.

Divide this mixture...one half slightly larger than the other...use 2 bowls.

In the smaller portion add:

1 egg
1/4 c. half cream half water
1 t. vanilla extract

Mix well until free of lumps ( mixture will be thin ).Pour into greased 5 x 9 inch glass loaf pan.

In the larger portion add:

2T. of butter
1 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 cup ground hazelnuts

Mix with hands , making crumbs, leaving some large crumbs.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 25-30 minutes till browned.

Kevin, if you and I were not already married to other people, I would be trying to hook up with you for your cooking.

Wow! This looks really great. What is Isomalt and where do you find it in the grocery store?

Thanks,
Bev

Bev, you will not find Isomalt in any local store unless it is a specialty store selling supplies to bakers.

There is a few places online that you could find by googling it.
Isomalt is a task specific sweetener that works best with icings, candies , chocolate and a few others. It is not a one for one replacement for sugar. It also at this point tends to be on the pricey side and not wise being used as a general sweetener.
In its element thought it will perform as well if not better in some cases than sugar.

Trish, when you consider some sweeteners you can get at 65 cents per cup and isomalt only sweetens at 40% of sugar that makes those two prices you quoted 10 to 20 times more expensive. That is all we were pointing out.

Gotcha. But like you said, it's not something you are going to use every day and for all applications.

Kevin,
I was interested to know details on why you used isomalt. Do you think polydextrose could be a good substitution?

Wow, the cake looks fabulous.

Adding Isomalt to my mental "must have" list!

Creek, I think Scott covered this in a thread that Whooo started the other day.

Polyd is iffy in low/no moisture environments. That leaves non erythritol sugar alcohols. I'm holding my hopes out that isomalt will work here and not be too laxating or too carby.

No matter how hard I tried, I could never create a light fluffy dry streusel. Now that I look back, it was the butter. Butter has a tendency to make crumbs collapse into a crackly shell.

So, no crumb cake recipe. Re-creating entenmann's crumb cake was/is my goal. What I believe makes entenmanns better than most crumb cakes is the hazelnuts (filberts) in the crumb. There are hundreds of crumb recipes, but very few are hazelnut based.

Thus the name of the thread.

So my answer would be no,

Maggy, there are about 20 carbs in the entire crumb cake not including the Isomalt. Personally I have not decided how to count those yet.

As far as the pumpkin or apple cinnamon spice, if you try them, please make sure you come back and let us know how they turned out.

Kevin-

I finally have the ingredients to make this but don't want to mess up on the sweetener. Where you say...

1 c. equivalent liquid splenda

Can I use Sweetzfree? Do you know how many drops?

Thanks

Thats what I used. I always follow the standard measure for it. That is why I list equivilent sweeteners. Whatever the measure is for that equivilent of sweetener that you use. In a case like this, one of those splenda quick pack would work here too because it is 1 cup equivilent sweetener.

kevin, do you have any suggestions as far as the isomalt is concerned? if we can't get that item, what do you think might work as a replacement? diabetisweet, poly d, maybe a combo of both? your recipes look great, but i can't try them, i cant find the isomalt anywhere.... tia

Bella, I don't think the polyD is going to buy you anything here.I guess if I had no other way to go I would try using brown diabetisweet but that doesn't mean it will work. It will be a try and see kind of thing.

Here I go again with a stupid question, this recipe calls for ground hazlenut, I found chopped do I just grind that or is there such a thing as ground hazlenut? I want to make this for the weekend.

Thanks

You could probably find ground hazelnuts, at Trader Joes maybe, if not just grind your own in the food processor being careful not to go too far and get hazelnut butter.

I was in the kitchen 3 1/2 hours tonight cooking and baking. I made this and I must say YUMMY, it is the first thing I have made with Carbalose & Carbquik that didn't have that taste I have been tasting, either the recipe is really good so I don't taste it or I have somehow like the taste
