    This bread was awesome.  I cooked it an extra 10 mins, but I think it would have been OK, with just the hour cooking.  It was nice and moist, and didn't fall apart too much, like some gluten free breads do.

  • When I stuck in the skewer,

    Submitted by Rinny_D on 29. March 2015 - 16:24.

    When I stuck in the skewer, it didn't stick, so I took it out. It probably needed a bit longer to 'dry up' a bit as the middle stuck to the bottom of the tin (ooops)I added some dry thyme, for some more taste which was a nice touch.

    Hopefully it works a bit better next time tmrc_emoticons.) tmrc_emoticons.)

    Found this needed a little more something as it was a little tasteless for my liking.  Will add more salt and maybe a chilli for a bit of a kick.

    I made this today and it worked perfectly! I was 50gm short on almonds so I added sunflower seeds, yummo.  I had it fresh out of the oven with avocado and sliced tomato delish! Really easy to make too, thumbs up for me thank you.

  • I really like this toasted

    Submitted by Thelmas Kitchen on 16. October 2014 - 13:29.

    I really like this toasted with honey or with vegimite! I use this loaf as a sneaky way to get master 2 to eat veggies or if he is refusing dinner - I crumble and serve with yogurt. Easy and tasty!

  • I tried this out as an option

    Submitted by Jaceyk on 16. July 2014 - 21:25.

    I tried this out as an option to get vegetables into toddlers. We don't eat a lot of paleo type food. Given the other comments I put less batter into loaf tin for a shorter loaf and it cooked beautifully with an extra 15 minutes. I also put some in a mini muffin tray and cooked 20-25 min and they cooked great. 

    I didn't have quite enough almonds to mill so I used 100g of walnuts instead. Overall, we actually didn't like how the loaf tasted. Not sure if it was because of walnuts??? However when I let my 3 year old dip the mini muffin into some maple syrup he gobbled up a few. So all was not lost tmrc_emoticons.)

    Quick easy and delish!

    I toasted a slice and had vegemite on it with soup and it was very tasty! I had a slice with honey for afternoon tea and it was equally yum! Also approved by a fussy toddler. I used Jap pumkin and cooked it 30 mins more as it was a bit wet still. This will be a reqular on our menu for sure.

  • My loaf came out still a bit

    Submitted by Stompy on 21. June 2014 - 15:42.

    My loaf came out still a bit too wet in the middle - even after extra baking (about 15 mins). The texture and flavour not really to my liking, but my hubby said he likes it (and I don't think he is just being polite).

  • Thanks so much for replying.

    Thanks so much for replying. I used butternut so perhaps that was the problem. Or the almond meal, which was homemade.

    Submitted by ClaireT on 22. May 2014 - 15:38.

    What a shame Shabs. I've checked the ingredients against the non TMX recipe and there are no typos. I have also made this multiple times using Jap Pumpkin and irs always come out super moist. I have only made it with shop purchased almond meal but I know others who have made it with almond meal they've made themselves and it's come out ok. 

    Thanks for your feedback and hope the next time is more successful

    Submitted by shabs on 22. May 2014 - 13:21.

    This didn't work for me. The mixture was way too dry when it was fully mixed. I added some extra eggs and oil but it still didn't bind well. Cooked it anyway, but as suspected it was still dry. Any ideas what could have gone wrong? I've double checked the ingredients and weights and I followed the recipe exactly, and I've checked the scales and they are measuring accurately.

    Yum, yum, YUM. Oh my goodness, I love this loaf. I can't fault it in anyway, I especially love the texture and the crunch of the pumpkin seeds. I'm going to make this all the time!  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Quick, easy and tasty, thank you for posting!

    The crust is really yummy so I'm thinking it might be quite good toasted.

    I didn't have macadamia oil so used grapeseed oil and it worked fine.

    Also mine cooked perfectly in 1 hour with no need to extend the time.
