Tweaker Geek, I did just like you (pressing the dough till it fit the pan circle) with the same result as you--didn't rise much. I finally gave up on muffin top pans and got 4" round pans which did good but I lent those to a friend and haven't gotten them back. Then it dawned on me what I was doing wrong and tried the muffin top again but this time just leaving it as a little ball. It's worked every time. After rising, they don't really touch each other (even though it looks like they do), there's a tiny space in there. I don't have the ceramic bowls.

I made the buns, they are really good, didn't look as good as kevins did, but taste good.... the only problem we had was that after eating just one bun for my Dh, it seem to trigger something in him to eat, eat , eat....

So we have desided to not eat anymore bread for a while..

has anyone else had this reaction to it?

This morning I was in the mood to experiment and since I was also running low on LC bread crumbs I decided to make a loaf of Carbquik bread because I like the taste of the carbqiuk bread crumbs better. I used the carbquik bun # 2 recipe and also used all milk as I did with the carbalose buns.
Ok, here was the experiment part I mixed the dough and put it in my removeable crock pot to rise. After 1 1/2 hours I put the crock in a 450 degree oven covered for 35 mins then uncovered it and baked it for 5 min longer to brown.

What I got was a very tasty cross between simple white bread and a short rise no knead bread.
Very nice crust and a soft center.
It didn't raise like the carbalose but that is ok seeing what I planned to use it for.

I plan on doing a carbalose loaf like this soon.

Kevin,

I don't have guar gum. I do have Xanthan. What do I use in place of the guar gum?

Hi Kevin ... For this one... Is the Carbquik #2 recipe you are referring to? Thanks,
Marla

Simple Carbquik White Bread I was impressed with the taste of this bread.


* 3/4 cup warm water
* 1/4 cup heavy cream
* 2 large eggs
* 1 Tbsp. olive oil
* 1/2 Tsp. salt
* 1/4 cup wheat protein isolate 8000
* 1 3/8 cup Carbquik
* 1 cup wheat protein isolate 5000
* 1/8 cup Resistant Wheat Starch 70
* 1 Tsp. guar gum
* 2 Tsp. Xanthan gum
* 2 Tsp. baking powder
* 1 Tsp. sugar
* 1 packet rapid rise yeast

Combine all the dry ingredient in a glass mixing bowl.
Then put the wet ingredients in an electric mixing bowl.
With the paddle, mix the wet for about 1 minute on low then add the dry mixing till well combined.
Change the paddle for the dough hook and kneaded with the hook for 4 to 5 min.
Then turned the dough into a glass bread dish, cover and let rise for 1 to 2 hours in a warm draft free place till dough doubles. The dough will be quite sticky.

When dough doubles in size bake it in a preheated 350 degree oven for 40 minutes until golden brown.

This is a lighter and more tender bread than the Carbalose version.

24 carbs @ 16 slices ......1.5 carbs per slice.

Sorry...I just re-read your recipe for the Carbquik loaf. You specified the Carbquik buns...my mistake...
BUT I didn't order the not/Sugar yet. Can this loaf still be achieved with instead using Xanthan gum?

I also don't have Splenda quick pack yet...(these items are on order yet). What is the Splenda grandular subsitute for this 1/8 tsp Splenda quick pack.

Thanks a million...

If you use 1 tsp of xanthan you should be ok.

1/8 tsp of a quick pack is the same as 2 T. granular.

I have been reading this thread and I hope I am not repeating a question, but I want to understand this because I am eager to try this out:

Is this correct:
If I want to make pizza, I use recipe #4 and place in the fridge for 5 hours.(Can I freeze the remainder of the dough for another use or should I freeze before I place it in the fridge?)
If I want to make rolls or bread, I let the dough rise and then bake.

Thanks,
Kay

Thats pretty much it Kay. I personally have never tried freezing it yet ....before or after so I don't know the answer to that.

This is a one rise recipe. It will give you one good rise but if you are lookng for something that will rise more than once....this is not it.

HTH

I think you should bake and then freeze.

For pizza pre-bake the shells and then freeze for later use.

The bread crumbs have brought back real meatloaf and crabcakes, and all the other things you use bread crumbs for, lol!!!

That's what I did. I haven't cooked the second one yet, and probably won't for another week or two, but I'll report the results when I do.

If you lived in MD you wouldn't be mentioning bread crums and crab cakes in the same sentence.

Hi, Debbie! I'm new here myself, and still on a steep learning curve. I noticed nobody had responded to your question, though, so I thought I would.

Based on what I have read here, low-carb breads don't work very well in bread machines, because the machines are designed to punch the dough down and wait for a second rise. Low-carb breads don't rise the second time, so you end up with a heavy, dense loaf.

You can use a machine to take the dough through the kneading process, but then you have to remove the dough and put it in a bread pan, let it rise, and then bake it in the oven. Hope this helps!

Is there a carb count for the simple white bun 1 carbalose? I can't seem to find it.

Debbie,
Just confirming what Kisal said. I use my bread machine to mix/knead the dough but then I remove the dough, put it in a loaf pan, let it rise and bake. You won't be happy with the bread if you let it finish in the machine. The first rise would do fine but the second would hardly rise at all. Sorry. Mine takes about 20 minutes from start to end of knead so I just set a timer to remind me to come back and finish things.

I don't know of any recipes using soya flour. The recipes here use Carbalose or Carbquik for the flour, Wheat Protein Isolate 8000 (for structure/chewiness), Wheat Protein Isolate 5000 (provides stretchiness/helps rising) and Resistant Wheat Starch (neutral flavor, helps offset the weird taste of lowcarb flours). If you click on a blue highlighted ingredient, it will take you to Netrition where you can see a description of the item as well as order.

Jackie

It is the same carb count as the carbalose #1 bread. 32 carbs divided by 8 buns or 4 carbs each. Most buns, homemade or store bought will be about twice the carb count of 1 slice of bread.

Bummer...I just realized I only have the Wheat Protein Isolate 5000, but not the 8000. I think one of the recipes only had 1/8 c of the 8000. What is the purpose of the 8000? Is there any chance I could do without it, or sub the 5000 for it?

Do you have wheat gluten flour? That's a sub for WPI 8000.

[COLOR=red]It is my understanding that wheat gluten flour and Vital Wheat Gluten are the same.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#ff0000][/COLOR]
[COLOR=#ff0000]I have Vital Wheat Gluten and not 8000. I use the VWG. It is a little higher in carb count, but works fine. I have a LOT of it, so till it is gone I'll use it to replace the WPI 8000. [/COLOR]
[COLOR=#ff0000]I think it seems to add about 1 carb to each slice. Maybe 2 to a bun. I haven't figured that. But sometimes because of the rounding, it doesn't really quite double.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#ff0000]OK, I just ran it through my MC. I actually have his Carbalose #4 recipe in my MC, not the Carbquick bun recipe. But I come up with 3 carbs for 16 slices (using my VWG) and 5 for 8 slices (or 8 buns). HTH.[/COLOR]

Along with being less carbs WPI 8000 has about 24% more protein than Vital wheat gluten which is a better nutritional bargin for your buck.

Thanks for all your help and info. I think I'll put the 8000 on my next Netrition order, but for now, use VWG, since I have some in the pantry.

I ordered WPI 8000 and some more carbolose.

I mixed my ingredients up for loaves and buns.

I ran out of yeast, lol!!!

A jar of yeast lasts me at least a year!! I bought this jar in December!!!

So now I have all the dry ingredients mixed up and am holding it until I can get out to get yeast!!!

Ah well!!!
