Cave man bread

Yes, I did it.  Paleo bread, but you and I both know the real cave men didn’t eat bread.  Root vegt. were probably the only starches they had.   Also, because I think live probiotic cultures are so important, I used sourdough starter instead of baking soda and powder.    Here’s what I did:

My Cave Man Bread

  • 1 & 2/3 cups raw almond mill  (I milled my own in a flour mill, but you can carefully use a food processor, or buy it). Up date coffee grinder 1/2 at a time short pulses works better than processor, which tends to turn it into almond butter.
  • 1/2 cup sourdough starter

Mix well and let ferment over night, the next day you should see bubbles, and notice it’s come up a bit, if not, give it more time. Next day:  Preheat oven to 350.  Line a small baking dish with baking paper, come up above the sides with it, because of the rise.

  • Separate 6 eggs, beat whites to soft peaks .
  • 1/4 teaspoon real salt
  • 4 whole eggs, beat well, add to bread mixture, make sure to blend well.
  • Fold in egg whites, 1/3 at a time.

Fold into lined dish and bake 1 hour, but test for done, with a knife, starting after 45 min.  Bread needs to cool to firm up.  In the morning I’ll be making  French toast with this bread for my cave man.  ps I use the left over yokes for mayo.
