Just made my first Carbquick biscuits...

They didn't rise like I hoped they would (I could have rolled them too thin), but they are delicious! Does anyone have any favorite recipes that they use the Carbquick for?

Hi Shopgirl, The post she's linking is my post, and I still love it. There have been quite a few other bread recipes posted since, but I like this one still, and make it a couple times a week, at least. It has a very bread-like consistency IMHO, and I've never had a problem with the taste of Carbquick, as some others here have.

I do add about 1/2 teaspoon baking powder to the mixture now (there was discussion of whether or not it was necessary, but I found that I prefer adding it.) Most of the time, I make the version with a shake or two of nutmeg, and just a tad of Splenda. After it's cool enough, I slice it laterally, into 3 or 4 slices, and then pop it into the toaster.
It toasts up really well...and tastes great with SF jam of your liking. Makes good french toast too...using egg+tch of cream+tch of daVinci's sf vanilla syrup. And I've also made toasted cheese sandwiches with it.

My new microwave is stronger, and cooks it in about 1 min, 15 sec. Suggest you check it at that point--if you see that the top appears "baked", without a gooey spot in the center, it could be done enough. You can give it another 15 sec and check it again without any harm to it. Over-cooking causes it to dry out...but it also needs to get "dry enough". The end texture should not be gummy at all. I turn it out upside down and allow it to steam a bit--it continues to cook for a short time--and will dry out the bottom if you wait a minute. I know this makes it sound difficult--but it isn't--just the right timing is all.

I hope you'll give it a try...and that you like it. You might have to give it a couple tries to get the baking time just right...to still have it be moist, but not over-cooked and dry.
It's been a big help to me in this WOE. Hope this helps...Jennywren

Thank you SO much everyone! I can't wait to try your recipe, Jennywren. Bread is the hardest thing for me to give up, and having even a small amount of something like bread is a real treat on this lifestyle.
