Wow! those look neat ... and I am sure taste as good. Mine never look that good (always all wonky), but taste good (at least to me ;) )

I make almond bread when travelling and have a Omnia stove top oven that I use. Comes out pretty good. Carry all the dry ingredients in small bags. mix in the wet ingredients just before baking (water, milk, eggs and oil) and viola, you have bread after about 45 mins. It is therapeutic.

The Omnia stays in the van.

Thanks, sounds great. Would love your recipe with amounts that work with an omnia if possible.

This is the basic recipe I use - https://www.ditchthecarbs.com/low-carb-almond-flour-bread/

I add some dry fruits (usually 150 gms of black raisins) to make it a bit more interesting. I also add 2 tbsp coffee powder for the colour and also the aroma. :)

Comes out delicious.

If cooking on the Omnia, it is the first 10 mins on high, then about 40 to 45 mins on low flame with a final 2-3 mins high flame to get the top a bit more crisp. That is how I like it. (the pic below does not have coffee added).

The quantity used is as mentioned in the recipe and it fills the Omnia perfectly.

I found the ‘game changer’ for the Omnia is a non stick Bundt tin that I bought in LeClerc a few years ago……. Stops all the sticking or burning (it’s in the 2nd photo above with my circular Baguette)

Hehe, thanks for the kind words but I am only really any good at baking bread, the rest is all a bit hit and miss for me (well so is the bread tbh but I enjoy it anyway) :thumb

Is that by Omnia, or a different brand?
It is not Omnia and I can’t remember the (French) make either, sorry. However I think it is simply a case of taking the lower section of the Omnia into a shop that sells baking stuff and try to find a fit :thumb

Anyone tried bread in an air fryer?
Reason I ask is, I’ve always made my own bread, usually 2-3 times/wk however, since the price of Amps went bonkers, I’ve stopped.

We do have an air fryer (read small oven, no idea where the name came from?). Most things seem to work in there that would normally go in the oven. Surely bread will work?

Can’t see why not….. I’m gonna have a go with the slow cooker. I would think the air fryer would do quite well actually. Try it and post the results here :thumb

Not like a normal oven no, but at current leafy prices it’s worth an experiment……

I had a quick look on YouTube re air fryer bread…… loads of peeps doing it……

I quite fancy these doughnuts however…… :thumb

Tried sourdough a couple of times. On both occasions I forgot about it and discovered a science experiment in the airing cupboard six months later!

"What would be rescued in a fire" priorities in our household are (in order): the sourdough culture; the dog; the cats; me.

Surprised to see you’re that high up the rankings tbh? Nothing personal, just odd.
