  2. Do you mean generally or in the pizza? I find almonds don't taste too almondy in cakes, bread etc. On the pizza, there are so many jalapeños, you can't even taste your own tongue :p

    I have loads of coconut flour but have not managed to make anything successful with it yet.

    Dunno I just don't like the sound of flour with such a strong taste .....
     
  4. The almond flour is just ground almonds. Lovely for making low carb muffins. And low carb marzipan sweeties if you like that sort of thing.

    Ok, so today I had a miserably failed attempt at low carb Gouda cheese Doritos.

    I put the triangles on my silicon sheet, popped them into microwave and watched them melt into a single bubbly blob. I think it took about 2.5 mins.

    But, when cool, I have to admit the blob was gorgeous. Crispy, hard and rather like a cheesy poppadom.

    So now I'm wondering what my blob would be with scattered bacon crumbs, or onion shreds...

  10. I made Doritos in a regular oven. Took about 6 minutes.

    (I just looked on here because every time I glance at the telly, Germany scores :eek:)

    Aha! That was obviously my mistake! Got confused with my Brie puffs...
