Soul Bread

I searched and cannot see that anyone is talking about this bread. A lady who goes by Souls Song aka Gloria Koch created this recipe. I asked her if it was ok if I shared it here. She said, Of course, this recipe seems to be taking on a life of its own. So many are having such fun making variations of this recipe. Even though it was suggested that Designer Whey plain wouldn't work, as you can see from my photo's it did very well. The only thing I guess I may have done wrong was not getting the cream cheese totally blended as you can see tiny bits of cream cheese through out the bread. Doesn't effect the taste at all. It is wonderful. It is denser than traditional bread but slices beautifully. I have only eaten a small slice with cream cheese and strawberry jam.




Original Soul Bread Recipe

.9 net carbs per slice for 16 slices.
Ingredients

1 2/3 c unflavored isolate protein powder** (zero carb)
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 tsp baking soda
1 tsp xanthan gum
2 1/2 tsps baking powder
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 c melted butter
2 drops liquid sucralose (or stevia), optional
4 eggs
12 ozs cream cheese, softened
1/4 c heavy whipping cream (or half and half)
1/4 tsp cream of tartar

** Not all isolate protein powders produce great results.

Nature’s Best ISOPURE Whey Protein and Hoosier Hill Farm Whey Protein Powder are two brands that tested well.


Directions

Preheat oven to 325 F. Prepare a bread pan (9″ x 5″) or molds.

Soften cream cheese. (45 seconds to 1 minute in a microwave works well.) Melt butter and add to cream cheese. Add in olive oil, heavy whipping cream (or half and half) and eggs. Blend well using a stick blender or hand mixer.

Add baking powder and xanthan gum to an empty salt shaker and shake over the liquid mixture. Mix well after each shake to avoid lumps.

Add protein powder, baking soda, salt and cream of tartar to a flour sifter. Sift over the wet ingredients. Stir by hand just until mixed. (Do not use a mixer or blender.) Do not over stir or the bread will become dense.

Pour into a greased pan or silicone mold and bake at 325 F for 45 minutes, or until golden brown. The bread may be dry on top but adding melted butter helps if you’re eating it right away. Once cool, wrap in plastic to store.
