Sneak Preview

Today I started what I am figuring will be about a week of LC bread experiments and hope to come up with a couple of viable recipe from my efforts.

Anyway, after the first day I offer a [COLOR=Sienna]sneak preview of a 2.5 Carb Yeast BunKit.[/COLOR]

As soon as I prove it a solid recipe I will share it with you guys.

BTW a Bunkit is a cross between a bun, a dinner roll, and a biscuit.

Looking forward to the end result of your week-long experimenting. From the pictures, I'd say you are well on the way to success.

Must admit when you stated bunkit, I was thinking your were going to go into business selling a packaged item. LOL.

You know Strawberry I don't think I have ever had such a difficult time discribing something that I made.

When they first came out of the oven the outside reminded me of a bun, soft pliable with a moist biscuit like center. I tried it warm with butter and homemade sf blueberry jam and though whoa, this is too good for 2.5 carbs.

4 people tried them warm and gave me the thumbs up.

Funny thing though, as they cooled, they changed from a bun/biscuit to a roll/biscuit. The outside took on a crust while the inside stayed a moist biscuit texture. But once again it seemed the perfect delivery system for the butter and jam almost seeming dessert-like in a crusty shortcake sort of way.

How was that for a tease?

I am all set up to make them again in the morning and if the results are close enough to what I got today I will concider sharing the recipe before I make them a third time.

Yes taste and texture.

#1 having more almond flour will remind you more of a smooth biscuit and slightly sweeter than #2

#2 while still being slighly biscuity will remind you more of a traditional dinner roll.

My testers had great difficulty picking a favorite.

Anyway....I'm done baking for today

Two things I know I am going to tackle for sure is hamburger buns and Croissants. I'm not sure what days though. Then if I have time it will be non bread maker bread.

Oh Kevin, You are my hero. I need to make these but have regular PolyD and not PolyD plus. Does that mean I need to add some sweetener? If so, do you have a clue how much? I have liquid and powder Fiberfit, Splenda, xylitol and E. These are JUST what I need. Thanks so much.

The polyD plus I have is older and they did not make it that sweet then.....I understand they since have made it sweeter.......anyway if you add any I would not add much.......maybe equivalent to 1 or 2 T splenda....tops.

PolyD is necessary to the success of these recipes. The yeast needs the polyD to feed on.

An observation: during the rising step not all rolls doubled in size. it varied from roll to roll.......But not to worry as even the few rolls that didn't rise as much had the same taste and texture.
