When fall rolls along and the colder weather begins, chili starts making its entrance into our weekly food menu. What goes better with chili than cornbread? When going keto, you can no longer make this food item from that little blue carton since corn is off the table. But how can we get a yummy, sweet bread to eat with our chili.
Enter this easy, mock cornbread recipe that I worked to perfect for several months. The way to get the fluffy airy bread texture is to use yeast, yup. If you’ve ever used yeast before it can appear daunting, but I assure you that its sooo easy once you have one or two yeast recipes under your belt.
Yeast and Sugar
You will need to activate your yeast with sugar. Yes sugar. It doesn’t work with any keto sweeteners like Swerve or allulose. It DOES however slightly work with Yacon Syrup but your bread will have a slightly different flavor in the end, not bad, but just different. So back to the sugar. Yes, you will need to use 2 teaspoons of white sugar. Don’t worry because the yeast will consume the sugar and release gas once it “proofs” or activates. This gas is what gives the bread its rise and the delicious air bubbles within the dough. Trust me when I say you can't really replace this, the final product won't really be the same.
