We were taking over the Whats for Dinner thread,
so I thought I'd start one just for these buns.

Here is the link to the original recipe:

http://mariahealth.blogspot.co.nz/2012/ ... anini.html


and here is how Lynda makes them,
as at the moment she seems to be the only one who is having constant success with them!

from Lynda's blog:

Bread Rolls

1 1/4 cup almond flour/meal (120 grams)
5 level tablespoons psyllium husk powder (30 grams)
2 level teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 large eggs (including egg yolks)
1 cup BOILING water (225 ml)

Note: I've added the exact weights/measurements I used in case this helps. If you use a bigger size cup (250 ml) then as long as the same measurement is used for the almond and water, it should be OK.

Method:
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (or 160 fanbake).

I process my Ceres psyllium husks in a food processor to powder them. If you have husks that are powder, skip this step.

In a medium sized bowl, combine the flour, psyllium powder, baking powder and salt. Mix until well combined.

Add in the eggs and mix until a thick dough (I use a hand held beater and beat well). Add boiling water into the bowl. Beat again until well combined and dough firms up.

Form into 4 to 5 mini subs (the dough will rise about 2 to 3 times) and place onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for 45 - 50 minutes. If using fanbake, turn to normal bake half way through cooking if browning too quickly. Remove from the oven and allow the bread to cool completely. Cut open with a serrated knife.

The first 2 batches I made rose beautifully,
but were totally hollow inside.
I still used them for burgers though, and they taste great.

I just made my 3rd batch which seemed much better - the dough was firmer.
I made 6 smaller buns instead of the 4 giant ones previously,
but they barely rose ...

and I just realised that I mixed up the salt and baking powder - I only put in 1 teaspoon of b/powder,
bugger!

I also found out when weighing the ingredients that my measuring cup says 250ml on it,
but only takes 225ml of water
grrrrr.

Anyways, they will be fine for burgers again tonight.

The 225 of water was for when I used 120g of almond flour. If you use a 250 ml cup measure for the almond flour then use the same for the water! I'll change my recipe as it is confusing for you.

So here you go:

1 1/4 cup almond flour/meal (250ml size cup)
5 level tablespoons psyllium husk powder (30 grams)
2 level teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 large eggs (including egg yolks)
1 cup BOILING water (250 ml)

Its not confusing.
It was just me that read 1 tsp of salt as 1 tsp of baking powder and mucked it up lol !


But it made me realise that my cups are wrong!
it says 250ml on it, but only takes 225ml!
(cheap crap obviously - they were in my kit from school last year).

Weights are far better then cups,
as it will always be right - there is no human error.
Believe me, I need to weigh things when it comes to things like baking!

120gm of almond & 225mls/gms of water is fine.

If you make it with the 250ml measure, please still weigh it and post those amounts.
include the weight of the baking powder (it should be 10gms for 2tsp).

Like I said my 250ml cup wasnt !

OK so if using 250ml it is 150g of almond flour and 250 ml of boiling water. Still 30g of husk. It's looking good so I'll see if they turn out OK. I suspect it is all in the making. I beat the eggs in well then add the boiling water and beat for awhile until it really thickens up! Also don't overcook - leave them to cool before cutting. Hopefully this batch works!!

This batch went hallow at the top!! So I'm back to 120gr almond flour and 225 ml of boiling water :) Geez..... They taste great though !!! If you cut then nearer to the bottom then the top is not so hallow :)

Looks like I need to get some psyllium husk and have a go at these too. I've seen it in my local health shop.
