Recipe Review: Really Really Quick Single Serving Bun/Bread/Roll! :)
Wow! These beauties are really! as quick as this digital “instant photo” is! I don’t know how I found the link to this recipe, but man, this recipe is certainly a “wonder”!
I played around with it a little bit and here’s what I found:
The seeds really will help the appearance and probably texture too!
These will work probably with any flour you choose…whole grain even! (and that is whether you are GF or not!)
Don’t be intimidated by the almond flour (if you don’t have it on hand.) I didn’t and I just subbed for it with another tablespoon of flour.
Here’s the recipe with some little alterations/ suggestions:
¾ teaspoon molasses (or try honey or agave)
2 tablespoons flour (try any whole grain flour like teff, sorghum, brown rice, whole wheat, etc)
1 tablespoon almond meal(or another tablespoon of flour)
1 tablespoon ground flax seeds (or try chia seeds)
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon cocoa powder (for a darker color, not taste. Sub with the same amount of flour if you don’t want the color).
a pinch of salt, if you want
1 teaspoon sesame seeds (or cornmeal or finely ground nuts or poppy seeds, etc) Ohhh! I can envision a lemon bun! with poppy seeds! 🙂
In a cereal bowl, beat the egg and molasses (sweetener) with a fork, for about a minute. Now, add the flour, almond meal, ground flax seed, baking powder, and cocoa powder (if you so choose). Add in the salt (if you are adding it.) Add the egg, stir until smooth. Oil a 10 oz Pyrex custard cup (glass) and sprinkle seeds (if you like) on the bottom and sides.
Pour the batter into the cup. Top with more seeds if you like.
Microwave for 90 seconds. That’s it! 90 seconds to having bread in your hands! It’s so amazing! I only wish I had thought of it! 🙂
Slice in half and serve! (Topped with “butter” dairy-free/not, jam, etc!)
