I got it in my head a few days ago that I wanted to try making the Paleo bread recipe I had seen on Carrots N Cake. The recipe wasn’t from her but from Elana’s Pantry (click for recipe). I tossed around the different recipes she had but finally settled on the one recommended by CNC. First, I had to the hit the heath food store for odd ingredients like Almond and Coconut Flours.
Let me tell you, almond flour is expensive so I don’t think I’ll be using it often (or making this bread ever again since it used almost the whole bag!). Anyway, so it was pretty easy. You use a food processor. My batter almost didn’t fit when I needed to add the wet ingredients but I managed to make it work.
The bread actually came out pretty well! It didn’t rise as much as I thought (I even used the smaller bread pan as instructed in the recipe). It reminds me more of a dry banana bread texture than a yeast bread. It was fun making it though! Last night I tried it with some Irish butter and today I made eggs and put it on top. Definitely delicious!
I have to say though that I kind of knew I wouldn’t be that excited. I mean, I really don’t miss bread. I do like having something to eat my eggs with but really, I don’t need bread every day. And when I do eat bread, I’d rather it be the real deal. So while this was fun and delicious, I don’t need it. More of a fun time baking. I kind of saw this happening since I used to wonder why people made replacements for things. The whole point of Paleo is to eat like your ancestors and they weren’t baking Paleo bread. But then again, I understand that if you really want something bread-like and you really can’t have any grains, then this is what you have! It’s just not going to be a regular occurrence for me but I recommend the recipe if you are looking for something.
On another note, I took this cute photo this morning on my porch. I just loved how the dew was just sitting there!
