almond flour cake recipe

I have one of those, as well as a stand mixer, but they don't work well for the recipe I've used. The batter is extremely thick and hard to work with until all the egg whites are folded in, then the batter lightens up. A real project! Time for a new recipe Thanks for your reply, I appreciate your trying to help me.

almond flour cake recipe

Great idea, thanks for sharing that. I would need a plain almond flour cake recipe that doesn't require folding egg whites into a stiff batter. I did that twice last Passover and developed sore wrists which took forever to heal. I'm sure there is a good, easy recipe out there, just haven't found it yet.

does anyone have a good almond flour apple cake recipe?

This looks delicious! Thank you for sharing. I don't have an 8 inch springform pan, though. Maybe I could make it in an 8 x 2 inch cake pan? Anyway, most appreciated.

does anyone have a good almond flour apple cake recipe?

I have a 5 lb bag of almond flour that I'm trying to use up. I've tried several apple cake recipes, but haven't hit on one that I like. One of the problems I'm having is how much almond flour to use when a recipe calls for cups. Some recipes give weight, others do not. Some sites say that one cup of almond flour weighs about 4 ounces, but when I spoon it into my measuring cups then weigh it, I get just a little over 3 ounces. Before I try again, as ingredients are not cheap, does anyone have a good almond flour apple cake recipe that is tried and true? Feel free to share links to sites/blogs that you think could work. Thanks!

almond flour cake recipe

With Passover around the corner, I am looking for desserts that use almond flour. Lately, I've been obsessed with finding a good almond flour apple cake recipe, but thus far, have not hit on one. I do not like desserts made with matzoh or matzoh meal and would rather just have some fruit for dessert than eat anything made with matzoh. If you have a tried and true almond flour (not almond meal) cake (preferably apple) recipe, please share. I also don't eat chocolate - which I love - but doesn't love me. Thanks!

store bought veggie broth recs?

This is a good boxed broth. I've been using it lately for lentil and squash soups. Couldn't get the low sodium when I posted originally, but now, the neighborhood Whole Foods carries it.

coconut milk thai sauce recipes.....i need help, please

Looks like a nice, easy recipe. Thanks! How much coconut milk do you use? Coconut cream looks like an interesting product. I'll have to read more of the q & a's on Amazon.

Thanks, emu. Sounds like fish sauce and full fat coconut milk, along with a more flavorful broth (thanks all for the bouillon suggestions) should help my thai dishes taste much better. Glad to know kosher fish sauces exist.

OK. Glad to know you copied and pasted - because that was alot of info!! I can get Thai Kitchen at Whole Foods. I often get catalogs from Penzey spices. I've never bought anything, but maybe I'll treat myself to the sweet curry powder.

Thanks, bobabear. I keep Kosher, so I'm afraid I can't experiment with clam juice. I remember how delicious clam juice is, as I wasn't always kosher and used it for many recipes. It would certainly add some natural saltiness to my recipes, as you said. I'll have to stick with veggie and chicken broths.

WOW! Thank you very much for taking the time to share all that with me. I don't have a pressure cooker or slow cooker so would have to adapt to stove and oven. The flavors look really wonderful!

I'll look for some. Thanks. I usually sub soy sauce for fish sauce, but maybe the fish sauce will better enhance the flavor. Light coconut milk is now history!

Thanks for your insight and helpful advice. So light coconut milk and low sodium veggie broth are not a good combo. I can change that. I have a Whole Foods and Trader Joe's in the neighborhood. There might be an Asian market nearby......I'll have to check that out. What a neat trick! Thanks for sharing that with me.

I look at the recipes, see what I have in the house, and kind of wing it. Guess that's not the best way to go.

It's not a silly question. This may be where I'm having problems. I keep thinking that soy sauce is salty and that a tablespoon or so should flavor the sauce, but it's probably not enough. I should taste more as I go along, too. Thanks for the link to your recipe. It looks really good!

I have tried several thai sauce recipes I found on the internet, but they are somewhat lacking in flavor. They have plenty of spice, but not much taste, if that makes sense. The flavors are never quite right. I like using light coconut milk in my veggie and tofu dishes. Sometimes I use low sodium veggie broth along with the coconut milk. If any of you have easy, tasty, thai coconut milk recipes, with easy to find ingredients, I would be most happy to give them a try. Thanks for your help!

some pumpkin pie crust questions

Thanks everyone for your helpful replies. I think I'm going to try chilling the crust first, see how that works out. Hopefully, the crumbs will stay together and not break up into the filling. I've ditched the canned pumpkin. It didn't taste right to me. Maybe I"ll try fresh. And thank you Heidi for your recipe. Much appreciated!

some pumpkin pie crust questions

I would like to bake a pumpkin pie with a graham cracker crust. Some recipes say to prebake the crust for about 10 minutes in a moderate oven then cool before filling, others say to just chill the crust for at least 20 minutes before baking. What is the likelihood that the crust, if not prebaked, will not hold, dispersing into the filling before I've gotten it into the oven? Will chilling really prevent this from happening? Also, at what temp should I bake the pie with a graham cracker crust? I don't want to have burnt graham crackers on the edges of the pie. Last question, I tasted some organic pumpkin puree from a can with an expiration date of 2014. It tasted a little bitter. Does this mean the puree is a bit off, maybe too old to use? Most likely, I won't do anything until I (hopefully) hear back from some of you experienced pumpkin pie makers. Sorry for the long post and thanks for any advice.

my baked fish sauces always curdle

I'm off to the market right now. I'll pick up some full fat Hellman's for when I make my fish dinner this week. Recipe sounds delicious.

Thanks for the help! I'll try pan searing again, with your suggestions, and see how I do. I will definitely need practice. :)

This would certainly work. I had to google Veracruz sauce as I'd never heard of it. Thanks for the tip!

Sounds really good. Fish stays intact? The few times I've tried to pan sear fish, it always came apart. Not the most attractive of presentations, I must say. I'm not too good at flipping food in a pan. :(

No, not incinerated, but I have to err on the overcooked side. Any time I serve fish that seems the least bit underdone, it ends up back in the oven for several more minutes. It's a pain, but the family prefers fish on the drier, more well done side.

I tried 350 for one of the recipes, baked the fish for 30 minutes. Sour cream was low fat and Greek yogurt was no fat. Guess I should go for full fat dairy. I'll try that next time. I saw someone make a mayo mustard sauce on youtube, but there was no time given and fish was to be baked at 360 - I think it was salmon. Dish looked great at the end of the video, but I have no idea how long the fish was cooked.

Does anyone have a recipe for either a mayo, sour cream, or Greek yogurt sauce, preferably with mustard, that is spread over fish and baked....and doesn't curdle? My family likes well done fish so baking for 20 plus minutes at 375 may be the culprit. Still, I thought I'd ask. Thanks!
