I have mentioned several times that I have been maintaining a keto way of eating for a while. The bad thing about staying on it is that the meals can get very boring. Another is that a lot of the recipes for ketofying foods results in a mouth full of disappointment. I do try new keto recipes often and about 8 out of 10 are tried once and never tried again. The best ones are usually for savory dishes that are eaten either as a main course, or served as a side dish (like the caulitato salad that I make frequently).
The worst recipes are usually the desserts. They tend to be a horrible rendition of what should be a thoroughly lovely end to the meal. This week, however, I had some success.
TheHub is not doing keto, and he eats bread, pasta and all sorts of things I am not eating, but he has almost given up eating sugars. This weekend he had said he really wanted something sweet and I had been toying with a recipe I found for keto apple cider doughnuts. The only problem I had was the recipe called for apple flavoring and I had none. I did have some carrot cake* flavoring that came in a variety pack I bought the first time I ordered corn bread flavoring. It had been sitting unopened and I figured it would work just as well as the apple flavoring.
