Cuisinart Bread Maker

Guys, what is the one thing you received as a gift that you are obsessed with? For me it’s this Cuisinart Bread Maker. I have tried making keto versions of bread in the oven and while they came out okay, I was still missing that bread-like texture and taste. Let me tell you about this bread maker – if you love making homemade bread this is the machine to have, it is compact (silver and black goes well with my kitchen design). There is no work to be done other than adding the ingredients to the pan, this machine is fully automated, it not only kneads, but also rise and bake your bread. There are three crust shades: light, medium or dark and bakes a 1-lb., 1 1/2-lb. or 2-lb. loaf. There is also 12 preprogrammed menu options: White, French, Whole Wheat, Ultra-Fast, Sweet, Gluten-Free, Artisan Dough, Dough, Jam, Packaged Mix, Cake, Bake-Only.

Keto Avocado Toast w/Bacon and eggs

Classic breakfast or brunch – avocado toast, scrambled eggs and bacon 🥓. This is another example of the 90 second bread, this time I added flax seed powder. For the avocado, I simply used a medium one, sliced and chopped in a small bowl and added Trader Joes Everything but the Bagel Seasoning. Delish! Eggs were scrambled in butter. The bread recipe made 4 slices.

For the 🍞
2 tbsp Carb Quik Flour
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp almond flour
1 tbsp coconut flour
1 large egg
1 tsp flax seed powder ( I basically grounded the flax seed in my mini blender)
Dash of salt

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix until all the ingredients to make a batter.

Pour in a greased bowl or ramekin and bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

You can also microwave for 90 seconds.

Slice bread in 1/2, add 1 tbsp butter in a skillet, once heated add bread. I flip after 1-2 minutes.

Keto Maple Cake Donuts w/Maple Bourbon Glaze and Bacon

Fall is my favorite time of year, I love the colors, the crisp breeze, and all the flavors, I just love everything about it!  It’s the season for HUGE comfy sweaters, scarves, comfort soups, crock pot cooking, hot beverages, and pumpkin flavored everything!! This maple bacon donut is everything and who doesn’t like bourbon, that’s right I said bourbon – Think ultra tender and moist, all topped off with a scrumptious ‘maple’ glaze and crispy bacon bits! The ingredients below made four donuts, if you want just two you would divide in half. This is just a quick easy way to have a couple donuts without going crazy (that is just for me because I could eat six donuts at a time back in the day!
