Keto “Nekstella” Twisted Bread

Keto Braided “Nekstella” Bread #yum
The Nekstella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread tastes just like Nutella, so good.. I made the dough in the #cuisinart bread maker and chilled overnight. Baked for 10 minutes at 375 degrees, lowered to 350 and baked an additional 20 minutes. I found this recipe at http://www.glurenfreeonashoestring.com, I obviously changed the ingredients to make this keto friendly.

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 90 Second Hamburger Bun

Made this delicious cheese burger for lunch. The 90 second bread is a staple if you follow the keto lifestyle, I often-time will bake my batter instead of microwaving unless I’m pressed for time. I try to add different things to my bread or bun and found that incorporating the Carb Quik flour made it extremely fully and soft – just like a regular bun, I was very happy. I used my muffin top pan to use and the buns came out beautifully. The recipe below made 2 buns, but you could potentially make 3 buns (top and bottom).

Notes – I find that greasing the muffin top pan with butter works a lot better than Pam, they slid right out when removed from the oven.
