    Question For those of you who loved to bake...

    Primal Fuel
    So, for those of you who enjoyed baking breads and other such things before becoming primal, what's your favorite recipe now?

    I see lots of ideas for egg muffins or coconut flour muffins, and here and there recipes for almond flour cakes. What's the most satisfying primal baking recipe you've found? This is more than just about the end product but the joy and fun of baking.

    I don't plan on baking much, but it's nice to have some recipes on hand for the upcoming winter to treat my family and have some of that baking satisfaction.

    I love making pop overs, pancakes and syrniks (quark (or ricotta cheese) patties with a bit of rasins and tiny bit of flour), using a mix of rice flour, potato flour and tapioca starch in place of wheat flour (basically it substitutes flour 1 to 1 in any fav recipe for non yiest bread for you). It also makes a great pie crust. Choco's recipe for fermented corn bread was excellent, but alas my folks do not like cornbread and it took me a few month to eat some of it.

    I also enjoy flour-less treats, meringue being my favorite, but again, no-one likes it, so I don't make it.

    EDIT: The proportion for flour is 2/3 rice flour, and 2/3 of the rest potato starch, and the rest - tapioca, with ~ 1/4 tsp of gum for 'stickiness' for stuff like pop-overs and muffins.

    I bake-
    Meat loaf...
    Braised lamb shanks...
    Slow roasted cuban pork...
    Vegetables bake wonderfully too... or fruit, like oven-fried plantains to go with that Cuban pork.

    Hmm... seeing a trend there.
    And yes, I used to make absolutely WONDERFUL home baked yeast breads.

    Once I get to my goal weight range I have every intention of making good old fashioned Sourdough by keeping my own pet Mother.
    And I have no problem with adding nixtamalized, masa based, fermented corn bread to that either.

    For 'sweet' and pretty primal... can't beat a cheesecake IMO.

    Baking gets me into trouble. Also I can't be allowed to watch Cupcake Wars.

    I used to bake a ton of cupcakes and do piping work on the frosting. But now I mostly use my cupcake trays/liners for egg muffins (egg, sausage, spinach and mushrooms).
    Still haven't come up with a use for all my frosting tips...

    Silicone pans or silicone liners...

    I actually threw away a regular 'non stick' pan because the scrubbing was just too awful after the one set of egg muffins in it.
    My MiL borrowed my Sili pan and did not return it.
    I will buy another one before making muffins again you can bet!

    I have heard that others don't have this issue.... but I totally greased a non-stick pan, and those egg muffins stuck like GLUE!

    Yeah, I use the paper liners, but mostly because I have an insane amount of them leftover from baking days. They do stick, but I usually just use a fork to get off all the eggy goodness.

    Now that I don't eat baked goods (much) I don't bake very often. I have no incentive or desire. And I don't miss it.

    I bake. A LOT. and often. I . LOVE. to. bake. I bake for me, my dh, our family and friends. Because I love it and it relaxes me and I think its a challenge eating healthy and making yummy stuff Yes I bake. I will always bake because I live in the real world, in a house, with a stove! I would probably have figured out a way to bake in my cave with rocks! Hah!
