WOE: Low carb cake plan!

Cooking Keto with Kristie Southern Biscuits - Yum!

Since going grain-free, it's been hard to find a good biscuit that's not too eggy or nut-buttery. I like eggy and nut-buttery but sometimes you want something a little more on the floury side. I wanted to pass this along because it is the best one I've made so far.

I made half the batch into a sweet lemon cranberry drop scone. If you try these, don't forget the mozzarella. She forgets to include it in the written instructions. Mine needed longer baking time. She also mentions that you can add extra butter, which I did but I won't next time. It was too greasy.

Her video and instructions are on YouTube. You can do a search for "Cooking Keto with Kristie Low Carb Biscuits".

There's a nice, long, thread about Southern Style Biscuits (mostly for single biscuits) here:
http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/sh...d.php?t=720048

The original recipe was mine, but the amazing "cooks 'n tinkerers" here added some excellent ideas

I'd never heard of Dottie's biscuits until now. Thanks for the link Dottie! This site is such a treasure trove of goodies. I'll look forward to trying these.

I like her videos too Carolyn and want to try some more of her recipes.

I'm just so jazzed I can get such floury biscuity goodness from grain-free ingredients. They are pretty close to the real thing! Time for lunch - biscuits slathered with butter and jam methinks

I want to make them badly. Did she use oat fiber? I couldn't understand that part.
I need to get some egg whites. Don't want to use those precious whole eggs

Yes, she uses oat fiber but does give a coconut flour sub for it. However, she does say that the oat fiber gives it a floury quality that the coconut flour lacks, so I say definitely go oat fiber! And this may be a potential use for all those folks with a bag of oat fiber at home trying to remember what they bought it for and wondering what the heck to do with it

I agree cracking 10 eggs is no fun so I got a carton of whites too. I did the math, although it hurt my brain immensely, it came to 1.25 cups of egg whites. My liquid egg whites counted each white as 2 tbsp - don't know if yours will be the same but thought I'd add this in case it helps and you are as allergic to numbers as I am!

Ps: I think her sausage gravy may be next

Here is the recipe from her blog Lifewithbutter

10 egg whites
2 1/2 cups fine almond flour
4 tablespoons oat fiber (or 2 1/2 tablespoons coconut flour)

1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp xanthan gum (can omit)
1 tsp salt
1 tablespoon erythritol
6 tablespoons butter (BUTTER SHOULD BE COLD!)

Use a hand mixer to beat egg whites until frothy but not stiff. Add in almond flour, oat fiber, baking soda, xanthan gum, salt, and erythritol and mix well with the hand mixer. Add in butter and use hand mixer until well blended. Add mozzarella cheese and stir thoroughly.
Grease a muffin tin and fill each well 3/4 full. Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes. Enjoy!

I love how easy Dottie's recipe looks. Can you taste the coconut flour in it? I'm hoping not to...

These are very nice. My muffin tin was more of a cupcake tin, so the recipe filled to the top for 12. Very nice flavor and the texture of a corn muffin. Will freeze most of them.

Thanks. Now I'll watch the video and see her make them again.

Mine took 18 minutes to bake. I put a toothpick in one and made sure it came out clean.

Texture doesnt sound biscuity... Curious if you ended up using oat fiber?

I had the oat fiber. My egg whites added up to 1.75 cups for some reason, so that might have been the difference. If they cool off, they might be flakier, but the taste is very nice and bland like a biscuit should be.

Oh wow, my egg whites came to 1.25 cups so huge difference there. Yes, that might account for it. I'm glad they taste good!

Hmm. How about using muffin top pans well greased? You could slice the muffins in half and put a fried egg/bacon in between?

I love my muffin top pan and love that idea. Would the batter be stiff enough?

I love this idea Carolyn! Yes, it's stiff enough. I'll try this next time. I found mine needed more baking and wanted more crisping/browning so this will really help to that end.

It is a very stiff batter..think corn muffins. I wonder if they would toast up in a toaster oven?

I think they'd toast up nicely given how nicely the tops of the biscuits toasted up.

I was also thinking of putting a titch more oat fibre in...

I've got them in the oven right now. Wish I had read this beforehand. I think I might have used too much egg whites. I used almost a cup for a half recipe. It made 7, almost filled to the top. Will report back on the texture/taste.

Okay, so I made them again today, but I used 1 1/2 cups liquid egg whites and I also folded in some crumbled bacon and cheddar cheese. Then I brushed the tops with melted butter and sprinkled them with garlic powder and flaked sea salt. Oh my, I thought I had died and gone to heaven!
