Baby banana bread for limited carb BLW!

March 12, 2016

2 egg yolks

2/3 mashed banana

1-2 Tbsp buckwheat flour (or less)

A dash of cinnamon (preferably Ceylon, real cinnamon)

25 grams butter

Melt the butter in a small pot. 

Whip together remaining ingredients and add to the pot with butter. Take off heat and mix vigorously with a spatula (heat resistant) so it merges with the butter!

Perfect for Baby led weaning or as snack to bring on trips etc.

  

Mayonnaise 

February 21, 2016

here is a batch of really nice homemade mayonnaise made in 5 minutes flat. 

 

You need one roughly 0,5L glass jar, an immersion blender and below ingredients at room temperature.

2 raw eggs (organic…)

200g meted butter (I use Kerry Gold ;))

2 dl rapeseed oil (replace as much as you want with olive/avocado oil if you don’t mind the taste)

1 Tbsp sweet mustard

The juice from 1/2-1 lemons

Some herbs the Provence

Salt

White pepper

Stevia drops (like 10)

I also added a pinch/”knife edge” of cayenne pepper, curry powder (and chicken stock)

Add everything to the jar, stick down the blender into the yolk at the bottom. Blend for 20 seconds then slowly pull it up so it all gets mixed in.

Due to the butter this will thicken significantly when refrigerated so I also add in some almond milk, roughly 1-2 dl maybe and stirr vigorously.

Note to self on poached eggs

February 19, 2016

I just poached an egg and that went pretty well. I’ve previously heard J Oliver talk about this. Most important is that the eggs should be FRESH. That’s key to success in this. I boiled a bunch of water, added lots of salt and then just let the water simmer while I stirred once so the water slowly started turning in a circle in the pot, just in time for when I cracked the egg into the middle of the “swirl”. The water should not move fast at all, then the effect is the opposite and the egg is mixed out in the water. The slow movement rather helps the egg white hold together and kind of fold over itself.. Let simmer for 3 minutes roughly. Enjoy!!

Apple cake

November 2, 2015

I had this wonderful cake from the Swedish page 56kilo.se

It was moist and a little crusty on top and quite delicious! 

Ingredients 

3 dl almond flour

Sweetner corresponding to 75g sugar (stevia+erythritol is my preferred choice) 

125g melted butter

0,5 dl double cream

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla powder

2 Tbsp cinnamon

4 eggs

4 apples high in acid

50g butter (for the apples)

Turn on oven to 180 (hot air) or 200 degrees (regular oven). Butter a pan (22cm diameter). Whip eggs and sweetner until white and fluffy. Melt the butter and add together with the cream to the mix. Blend the dry ingredients first then add to the batter. Peal and make wedges from the apples, fry in 50g butter and some cinnamon dusted on top and let simmer for 30 sec. Pour the batter in the cake mold and shove down the apples. Bake in the lower section of the oven for about 45 min. I just had mine in 35-40 min.. I think the cinnamon was supposed to only been used on the apples but I really liked it this way – 2 Tbsp in the batter and a little extra on the apples.  

Serve with some whipped cream with some vanilla essence.
