I just got into baking, bought a lot of ingredients and looking to enter the bread-baking game
My goal is to have at least 40% of calories come from protein. When making cake, I average about 45-55% (while adding various sweets for the fun taste!)
The question is what would a basic recipe be? I got really confused going all around the web looking for various recipes for protein and normal breads. proteincakery.com is quite useful but they call for whole psyllium husks which I do not have yet (coming from Amazon in a week)
My understanding is that I can take some whey/pea/rice protein powder, mix it with flour, add some baking powder and water, and let this all bake? I heard some horror stories of the end product being too tough, as I would hate to waste ingredients. Would 100 grams of protein powder, 100 grams of flour, 10 grams of baking powder and one egg be enough for a bread?
In addition I am confused with all the yeast and different flours talk, as well as ratios and leaving it to rise. I am just looking to start off with a basic bread recipe and see how it goes before experimenting
With cakes I just started by using eggs, yogurt, baking powder, whey and flour, and went from there experimenting by adding more ingredients. I want to do the same with bread - bake a high-protein bread, understand the basics and start experimenting from there
I am okay if it does not turn out super bread-like/tasty at first, as my goal is to get protein in my diet (I got about 50 kilograms of protein powders from Myprotein which I have to use in a year) - I would just hate to waste ingredients (where bread turns rock)
Appreciate any help! And to answer the question - I did Google; got confused with surplus of information and still not sure what is the basic recipe
