Blog#42’s Keto Sorghum-Almond-Coconut Bread
After losing the only bakery whose gluten-free bread my daughter could safely eat and months of trying countless recipes for sliced sandwich bread, we’ve finally settled into one she likes and is compliant with Keto, gluten, soy, and dairy free living.
There are recipes that yield a lower carb count, but the texture and taste suffer a great deal as a result.
Preheat oven to 365 degrees Farenheit
In a tall glass, combine
1-2 packets active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
Add 1/4 cup warm water and set aside to activate.
1/3 cup coconut flour
1/3 cup almond meal
1/4 cup sorghum flour
1/8 cup teff flour
1/3 cup psyllium husks
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Xanthan gum
1 teaspoon baking powder
*** You might add a packet of Fleischmann’s rapid rise yeast to the dry ingredients.
Sift ingredients, then mix them thoroughly.
In a separate bowl, incorporate the wet ingredients:
6 tablespoons canned coconut cream
1/4 cup sunflower oil
6-8 ounces unsweetened almond coconut milk
3 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
4 egg yolks
In a separate bowl, whisk into stiff peaks
6 egg whites
Incorporate wet ingredients one third at a time. Add the activated yeast mixture. Slowly incorporate the beaten egg whites.
Pour into long bread pan (11 3/4 x 5.5 x 3 1/4 is best if you can find it), or a deep square pan. Let the bread rise for at least a half hour.
Bake at 365 degrees Farenheit. 1 hour and 15 minutes in a short, tall pan. 60 minutes in a long, tall pan. Buns should be done in 50 minutes.
This bread is very dense and, as a result, doesn’t rise a huge amount. We prefer cutting the loaf in three equal lengths, then slice it four times across the width in order to make standard sandwich-sized bread slices.
When using hot dog, hamburger or demi-baguette pans, fill each form halfway for best results.
When I make buns, I usually double this recipe and use half of the dough in a square pan and fill my silicone bun forms with the rest.
This bread is gluten, dairy, corn, and soy free.
At just shy of net 3g of carbs per slice, this bread meets the criteria for the Keto diet, even when baked as a half-dozen hamburger or hot dog buns (6-7g net per bun).
