Greetings low carb bread lovers.
That phrase might sound like an oxymoron, but it doesn’t have to be. Just because you’re on a low carb diet, that doesn’t mean that you have to give up bread completely. Quite the opposite, actually. It just takes some low carb bread ninja skills to pull it off.
Take leavening agents, for example.
Today’s recipe uses a combination of light beer and baking powder to make it rise. The beer gives the bread that yeasty fermented taste that regular high carb yeast bread has. And you get nice air pockets from the beer, as you do when carbon dioxide is released from yeast.
This low carb beer bread has a wonderful texture and a lovely crumb to it.
And the addition of cheddar cheese is, I have to say, pretty spectacular. It’s the only thing that can improve upon beer and bread. Cheese is naturally low carb, so you can add it in and still have a slice of bread with only 3g net carbs. So go grab yourself a cold one, and let’s make some low carb beer bread.
