🍕 Keto Chow pizza crust 🍕- by Maggie Huynh @theketogenicmermaid
This recipe comes from Maggie: I did something today. Something even my 3 year old likes! When it comes to keto foods using almond flour or coconut flour, my kids steer clear, won’t even try things at first glance. But this pizza right here doesn’t look keto at all, that she actually wanted to try it. I was like SCORE! She kept coming back for more too! #momwin😍 Before I start rambling here’s the recipe. I used my favorite, @ketochow🤗
Mix together (immersion blender works great) butter, sweeteners and the eggs.
Add the ketochow, almond flour, baking powder, and cinnamon and blend again
Add carrots and blend for the last time.
Add batter to buttered pan or baking dish (see note)
Bake on 350 for 30-35 minutes or until cake bounces back when you touch it.
Blend with immersion or whip together until thick and smooth
You can make this in basically any kind of pan but the baking time will vary. I used a 10 inch round pan and also a cupcake pan with papers. My cupcakes took half the time. Makes roughly 16 cupcakes You may use one kind of sweetener if you wish.
What could be better than a light strawberry sponge cake rolled around whipped cream, fresh strawberries and toasted coconut? It takes a little bit more time and attention than the average cake but it’s a show stopper that will make any occasion extra special. The cake stays surprisingly tender, moist, and really tastes like a traditional sponge cake.Equipment: electric mixer, 15” X 10” jelly roll pan, parchment paper, a clean dry kitchen towel
Line the jelly roll pan with parchment paper and lightly oil the parchment paper
To toast the coconut spread it out on an ungreased pan and bake in the oven at 325 until it begins to turn golden and smells fragrant. About 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Beat the egg yolks with the sweetener until the color is light yellow and ribbons form when the beaters go through. Add the food coloring and mix in if using now.
In a separate bowl with very clean beaters whip the egg whites until they begin to foam, sprinkle in the sweetener and continue to beat until stiff peaks form.
Fold 1/3 of the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture to lighten it. Then gently fold in the remaining egg whites until they are almost completely combined. Being careful to retain as much air in the egg whites as possible.
Mix together the Keto Chow, coconut flour, gelatin, and baking powder and sprinkle them over the egg mixture. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the eggs.
Using an offset spatula, spread the batter onto the prepared jelly roll pan and even it out as much as possible its ok if it looks a little bumpy.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes until the cake is set, slightly golden around the edges but still tender and soft to the touch.
Meanwhile sift a layer of powdered sweetener on a clean, dry kitchen towel.
When it’s cool enough to touch carefully turn the cake over onto the towel and remove the pan.
Gently peel the parchment paper away from the cake and using the towel roll the cake up the long way, with the cake rolled inside.
Leave the cake rolled up in the towel to cool completely while you make the filling.
Slice the strawberries into thin slices
Whip the cream to stiff peaks.
Unroll the cake and spread it with the whipped cream leaving about 1/2 inch of plain cake around the edges.
Lay the strawberry slices over the whipped cream, and sprinkle with the toasted coconut. Gently reroll the cake. Using the towel to help hold it. Make sure not to roll the towel inside again.
Place the cake on a platter and garnish with more whipped cream, strawberries, coconut, and powdered sweetener if desired.
You can store the filled cake wrapped in plastic wrap, refrigerated up to two days and garnish before serving. Taffiny Elrod March 2019
Keto Chow Salted Caramel Semifreddo with Candied Almonds
Semifreddo means half frozen in Italian, it's a frozen mousse that is light and luscious. It's a perfect dessert when you want something cold and creamy but you don't want to lug out the ice cream maker.
Prepare an Ice cream mold or loaf pan by lining with plastic wrap or waxed paper
With an electric mixer, beat the cream until it starts to thicken, when it begins to look like melted ice cream slowly add the keto chow and confectioner’s sweetener
Continue to whip the cream until it holds stiff peaks.
Fold in the candied almonds
In a separate bowl beat the egg whites until they are stiff but not dry (be sure the bowl and beaters are very clean and there isn’t even a drop of egg yolk in the whites. Wiping the bowl and the beaters down with white vinegar will assist in successfully whipping the egg whites)
Gently fold the whipped egg whites into keto chow mixture.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared ice cream mold or loaf pan and wrap tightly with plastic wrap.
To serve unmold the loaf onto a serving dish, remove the plastic wrap or wax paper and slice to serve.
Garnish with reserved almonds, fresh berries and whipped cream if desired.
