USEFUL TIPS 1. Eggs and egg whites must be at room temperature. 2. The water must be boiling. 3. The key success here is to carefully control the water. Do not add excessive water. 4. Weight everything using weighing device. I use a scale with accuracy up to 0.01g. 5. Flaxseed powder must be grounded to fine powder form so that it can absorb water efficiently. 6. Psyllium husk MUST NOT be too fine as it will reduce its ability to absorb water. 7. Cool down completely before cutting. 8. Cover the bread with aluminium foil to avoid over browning. For this bread, we cover the bread when it has risen solid and tall at around 14min mark. 9. Do not worry about the sugar from small amount of honey in the yeast mixture. It is basically used for feeding the yeast by converting them into energy for the yeast to thrive. There will not be any carbs left once the yeast is activated. That’s when you see the mixture has turned into bubbly foamy liquid.
