Typically we really try to limit our microwave use in our home. However, considering that the time is drawing near for us to be out of our home, the sound of the clock ticking is LOUD in our ears. This means there is a necessity to do things that are not our norm like using disposable tableware daily this week and yes using the microwave to bake food. I was so completely surprised when I quickly threw together some ingredients on an afternoon break to try to make a mug cake.
Today is a no grain day for us and it is duck egg & walnut day, so I threw those ingredients together in a Vitamix Blender. What came out blew my mind! I was so shocked at the result! In my hand I had a 4 minute bread slice in my hand. I was not trying to make bread, but make sweet bread I did. The flavor reminded me of Hawaiian Bread I used to eat when I was a kid. However, the texture pulled apart just like a good quality whole grain bread. Remember this is totally grain free.
Now I was racking my memory to figure out what I exactly put in the blender and what my ratios were. Ugh, so disappointed I did not weigh this one out.
I am going to attempt remembering some ratios for further experimentation to try and recreate this SUPER Quick Microwave bread.
Exact Ingredients Used:
4 Duck Eggs
My vague memory of measurements are as follows:
4 Duck Eggs
1/2 cup Tapioca Starch or about 2 tablespoons less than a 1/2 cup
1/2 cup Flax Meal
1/3 cup Xylitol
Blended on low to high for about a minute added the following
1 tsp Vanilla
1-2 tb Olive Oil
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 cup Walnuts
Blend low to high until most of the walnuts are completely blended. This will add structure to the bread.
The batter was very thick and kind of sticky because of the flax meal.
Spray a 2 cup microwavable bowl with non-stick spray and put batter into it. Microwave for approximately 3 minutes, check to see if it is done. If not microwave for up to a minute longer. The bread should rise nicely. Immediately remove it from the pan so it will not get soggy in the pan. Cut each slice and wait at least 10 minutes before eating to improve the bread like texture.
Please let me know if you came up with the right ratios here. Happy experimenting!
