Karen- Tell me more about this Brazilian cheese bread?

 

Irish- I just discovered the egg problem about 2 weeks ago. So I haven't full looked into substituting. For some reason I was under the impression that it was more for recipe with an egg or 2 and might not really work for one of those low carb type recipes with 5 eggs. I hate to waste! so im reluctant to try it.

I'm not Karen but do make Brazilian Cheese Bread often thanks to Addie's suggestion many moons ago.

Here is one I use most, but have done others:

Sorry. I did not know you were talking about 5-egg type recipes. 

 

Look around the internet, The vegan sites may be able to help

What sort of things does he like to bake?  There are some alternatives that aren't too bad - money and taste wise.  Cookies with no flour (PB choc chip & a chocolate with nuts or chips that I make).  Betty Crocker brownie mix - better and fudgyer than "real" ones.  Brazilian cheese breads and various versions.  There have been a lot of recipes on this forum.  Or just ask and maybe someone has one for you.

 

My family likes Jovial pasta the best - it doesn't overcook.  I never pay attention to the times - I just test them.  There is another brand that is good that way, too that wasn't mentioned......  I will check later and edit it back in here.

 

 

The first baking item I purchased was coconut flour and it lasted a while! Most recipes only require 1/2 cup of the stuff so the fact that it was nearly $7, didn't really matter. It turns out the coconut flour absorbs alot of liquid, usually in the form of many eggs. Now I have discovered that I have a problem with eggs! So no more coconut flour! Glad I didn't replace that bag.

 

Hubs' Dad gave him $20 when he dropped him off freshman year of college....he came home with $19 of it at the end of the year..  He HATES to spend money :D.  He likes to bake mostly cookies, bars, that kind of thing.  He said this is a good excuse not to bake for a while because we both could stand to lose a few pounds :D.

 

A good friend of mine is diabetic and she often substitutes applesauce in recipes.

The low carb recipes have a lot of eggs but they come out really moist and tasty. I think the applesauce substitute came out well, so I suppose if I switch to a traditional gluten free flour instead of the coconut, it would work out fine to replace just one or 2 eggs. If i use regular flour and regular recipes, then it should work out. I just have to do it.

 

I can't believe I have never heard of this cheese bread. I will have to make it sometime. That is, assuming I eventually get eggs back. Right now im too afraid of them.

Try very hard to not become afraid of any food. Keep a good log of reactions and trial any food you remove after some time. The trial should be that whole food only...as in eat one hard boiled or fried egg (with nothing in the pan...good nonsticks work for this) all by itself..,preferably before anything else has been ingested that day and only on days that you are feeling good digestively.

Gluten free & egg free is tough.  Lived through it though, and learned a lot.

 

Go for your old recipes that have only 1 or 2 eggs to replace.  Think about why the egg was used in the recipe to determine which way you will replace it.  (lighter texture?, hold the other ingredients together?, and how much flavor was this egg adding to the dish?)

 

For dishes that need a lift ~ egg replacer product / baking powder & vinegar

hold it together/ flavor ~ fruit puree (as in applesauce or babyfood) I have added water to almond paste in food processor,

hold it together (no added flavor) chia seed or flax with water, gelatin [vegan recipes are not going to show how easy it is to swap eggs for gelatin ~ there is such a thing as vegan gelatin, but not convenient to find]

 

I love Cybele Pascal recipe book, Allergen Free Baker's Handbook.

Hon, tapioca starch based recipes are not at all low carb.

DItto!!! I was gluten-free, DF, EF, SF, and few more "something-effs"at one point and still managed to eat and gain some serious hip and butt cushion, too. :D .

I make a bread like substance with apples ground in the blender added to coconut flour, sugar (or agave or honey), cinnamon and one egg...the egg could be replaced to but I'm fine with them in moderation.

Oh I usually add a touch of vanilla too...I love vanilla :)

Half coconut/half almond flour is good too.

 

 

that sounds interesting!  I would need some cinnamon with that!  :)

 

SMRI - I would be happy to share any recipes with you, if you want them.

Post away!!!!  I feel like I'm learning to cook all over again--even though I haven't had to change THAT much, it's making me think a lot more in the kitchen then I've had to.  I had some gluten-free waffles this morning and normally I would have syrup but because of my calorie restrictions, I had to come up with something else so I warmed up some fresh fruit.  What I REALLY am craving now are some Hostess Powdered Sugar Donuts so any substitute for that would be lovely :D

Its a boy.  And that is so right!  Trying to convince him he might like a more rainproof jacket than a lined hoodie.  He won't have cute stuff for his walls or nice matching pillow shams & bed spread but we are trying to whittle down the tools to one tool bag and the power drill box!

This is the recipe I use for brazilian cheese bread. http://www.ourbestbites.com/2011/02/quick-brazilian-cheese-rolls-pao-de-queijo-2/

 

Something to keep in mind if you make it is that it will not work with an egg substitute. I tried several times with several options for an egg sub and every time they came out rather flat and hard. Other than the egg and tapioca though it's a fun recipe to play with.

You could use any nuts or chips with these - just check butterscotch chips - some are made with malt.

 

Flourless chocolate cookies
 
 
Mix 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa, 2 tsp. cornstarch, 1/4 tsp. salt, 2 egg whites (not beaten). 
Should be thick enough to form balls; if not, add more sugar. Should be sticky and form a imperfect ball. 
Stir in 1 cup nuts (unsalted peanuts, pecans, or walnuts.) Form into 15 balls, place on parchment paper, and bake 16-19 minutes in a 300 oven until crackly and shiny. Cool completely. . They have a sort of crisp-meringue outside, and a soft, chewy inside, 
 
 
 
Any way.....  if you go to the main page (for some reason it works better for me from the main page) and use the "google" search, you can find lots of things.  Its in the top right corner.  Use the little "gear" for more options.  If you choose "as posts" (down near the bottom) you can read the actual posts and its easier.

Some people use Funyons.  They were gluten-free last I heard.

You can make your own crispy onions. Just soak in milk, bread and fry in oil. Lots of recipes if you need step by step instructions with measurements if you google for it. Making your own are tastier and far better because of the lack of weird ingredients imo. Of course, there's nothing wrong with the occasional Funyon if you're into that sort of thing, they're good.

okay, I made a Bday dinner for my bestie tonight.

All her faves:
santa marghuerita prosecco
duck pate, brie , fruit, crackers
Potato gratin
asparagus
Filet of beef tenderloin studded with garlic and draped with bacon
Port wine sauce with mushrooms
Tiramisu
and we decanted a bottle of  Taylor Fladgate Port from 1994 that we have stored since I bought it for J as a wedding gift 1997
It was a perfect 100 from Wine Spectator back then and we have waited to share it with her when we moved to florida (she loves port)

 

I should be good and buzzed and hyper by 10PM. :lol:

    • Hi Kasia2016, Yes, celiac disease symptoms can vary widely.  Some people have no symptoms, we call that silent celiac.  Other have difficulty walking (gluten ataxia), skin rashes (dermatitis herpetiformis), and thyroid disease (Hashimoto's thyroiditis).  The list goes on and on.  GI symptoms can vary widely too, from mild symptoms at times to severe symptoms.
    • Hi egs1707, Welcome to the forum! Irene is right, you should not be gluten-free until all testing is completed.  The celiac disease tests are checking for immune system reactions and damage, and when you go gluten-free that starts to decline.  So the tests may not show the true immune reaction that is going on or the normal damage.  They may not show any damage in fact and you could get a false negative diagnosis.  You body starts healing and out the window go the test results.  Your doctor gets an "F" grade if they told you to go gluten-free now. But you aren't alone in having a doctor who doesn't understand the celiac disease testing process.  Many of them are woefully ignorant of proper testing for celiac disease.  That why the current estimate is somewhere in the range of 85% of celiacs in the USA are undiagnosed.  It doesn't help when doctors screw up the testing themselves.  Or refuse to test people.  Which is also far too common. I was vegetarian for 5 years.  I am not anymore and don't recommend it.  It is hard enough living gluten-free and finding safe food to eat and adequate nutrition for healing a damaged body.  I used to eat a lot of soy products when I Was vegetarian, but now soy makes me physically sick.  We can sometimes develop reactions to foods we eat a lot of while our guts are inflamed IMHO.  Soy is not a healthy food anyway from my reading. I can't do dairy now but may people who start out lactose intolerant end up being able to eat dairy after they have recovered. The best advice I can give is to avoid as much processed food as you can, and eat mostly whole foods you cook yourself at home.  When you do cook, cook big, and freeze the leftovers.  That way you can quickly take a small portion of food out of the freezer and reheat it.  Being celiac it is more important to learn how to cook.  Unless you are wealthy all those gluten-free processed foods add up quick.  Plus gluten-free processed foods often are lacking in fiber and vitamins. You'll want to watch out for vitamin deficiencies also.  Since celiac disease damages the villi in the small intestine, the vitamins and minerals etc are not digested and absorbed well.  So celiacs can be low on vitamin D, calcium,  and one other one I forget.  Vitamin B-12 may be low also ( it is important for nerve health).  Then there are some vitamins that vegetarians tend to have problems getting enough of also to consider. Adjusting to living with celiac disease means adjusting to a new diet and some lifestyle changes.  There's lots of us that make that change every year though, it's not impossible.  You will most likely end up eating better, more nutritious food than many of your peers.  And you will avoid a pletora of additional health concerns that can come along with untreated celiac disease. Learning to cook can be an adventure and you may enjoy it once you start.  you may find your taste in foods changes once you have been gluten-free for a while too. Recovery from celiac disease can take some months.  The immune system is very serious about protecting us and doesn't give up quickly.  Also it always remembers so it will react to even small amounts of gluten.  I live with gluten eaters at home and I do fine.  I just am careful about rinsing dishes off and so forth before using them. There is a Newbie 101 thread at the top of the coping with forum subsection.  It may provide some helpful info.  
    • That's great to hear you are feeling better Nightsky.  I really think when our GI systems are in distress already that it doesn't take much to set off symptoms.  Once I eliminated the other foods that cause me symptoms that helped a lot too.  And added some extra vitamin D to my diet and selenium. Many of us have developed reactions to other foods besides gluten and need to avoid them to keep symptoms at bay.  For me nightshades, carrots, soy, dairy, and celery all cause symptoms.  It took me awhile to figure out all those food culprits, but it made a big difference getting them out of my diet. But we are all individuals, and our bodies react individually.  So you may or may not have additional food intolerances develop. Celiac is one of those life journey things and we learn as we go.  Just keep the bottle of aspirin handy!
    • Pastry chain goes gluten-free, using mangoes ... But gluten is also believed to cause celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, and wheat allergy, ... View the full article
    • I know that Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce  in the US is gluten free, I also know that in Canada it is NOT. This is a very reliable site: http://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/vinegar/ But it is in the US. I'm agast that the Irish Celiac Society says malt vinegar is gluten free.  I wouldn't use it. No sense taking any chance at all.
