Chebe mixes
« on: December 29, 2011, 07:10:41 AM »
So I made the Chebe cinnamon rolls for Christmas.  At best they could be described as rubbery and chewy.  Reminded my DH of Ener-G bread.

DS1 is allergic to eggs so I subbed the two eggs with Ener-G egg powder which works well in our King Arthur mixes. 

Not sure if the rubbery issue was the egg replacer or just user error.  Willing to gamble again as our shop has them relatively cheap (you know in the course of gluten free baking that is relative) but wondering if others use egg subs and what they use.
DS1 - Wheat, rye, barley and egg
DS2 - peanuts
DD -  tree nuts, soy and sunflower
Me - bananas, eggplant, many drugs

They don't work without eggs.

Not at all.  Tried flax, chia, and ener-g.

Thank you, I will scratch them off the list.  (And feel less like an idiot LOL)

Yeah, it's a shame, because I really love pćo de queijo, but I'm not going to fix bread that I can't share with kiddo.  Too cruel in an already GF household.  I used to make great flatbreads with it for panini.  If he ever outgrows the egg allergy, chebe will be the first thing I buy.
