Step 1

Trim and peel turnips. Cut into chunks. Bring a 2 quart pan of water to boil. Add 2 tsp table salt and 2 tbsp white vinegar. Add turnips and boil until soft. Drain water. Mash turnips with 2 tbsp butter, cream and egg. Stir in 1/4 cup of the bread crumbs, sweetener and salt. Spoon into a casserole dish. Dot with remaining butter and sprinkle bread crumbs over the top. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes

*I used Jennifer Eloff's recipe for Plain Bread, a quick microwave bread which toasted, makes good bread crumbs. Recipe Below

Jiffy Cinnamon Bread:

7 tbsp ground almonds (105 mL)
31/2 tsp coconut flour (17 mL)
31/2 tsp oat flour (17 mL)
1 tsp baking powder (5 mL)
1/2 tsp cinnamon (2 mL)
1/4 tsp salt (1 mL)
2 to 3 tbsp raisins, snipped (30 - 45 mL)
in half
3 eggs
41/2 tsp heavy cream, OR almond milk, OR (22 mL)
coconut milk
Liquid sucralose to equal 4 tsp (20 mL)
SPLENDA® Granular
11/2 tsp olive oil (7 mL)
3 tbsp shredded Monterey Jack cheese (45 mL)

Spray an 8-inch (20 cm) square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. In medium bowl, combine ground almonds, coconut flour, oat flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Stir in raisins. In small bowl, with fork, whisk eggs, heavy cream, liquid sucralose, OR SPLENDA® Granular and olive oil together. Make a well in center of dry ingredients and pour in egg mixture. Sprinkle with cheese and mix everything together really well until the mixture thickens slightly.

Pour mixture into prepared pan. Spread out evenly. Microwave on high 2 minutes and 50 seconds (Your microwave might need different timing. Mine is powerful and runs hot.). Remove from microwave oven and immediately cut a cross in the bread dividing it length-wise and horizontally in half into 4 quadrants. Take each half and flip it over to allow the undersides to dry out a bit. When cool, slice each piece in half horizontally so that you have 8 slices of bread that are more or less the size of a slice of store-bought raisin bread.

Place in the toaster and toast until nice and brown..

Variation: Plain Bread (great for toast): Omit raisins, cinnamon, sweetener and salt. Instead use 1/4 tsp (1 mL) onion salt. This recipe makes great grilled cheese sandwiches in a grilled cheese sandwich maker. Nutritional Analysis: 8 slices, 1 slice: 103.6 cal; 5.2 g pro; 8.2 g fat; 1.7 g carbs
