I wanted to re-create "Funfetti" boxed cake mix... It was always one of my favorite mixes in the cake section! I really did not want to include nuts so it could be considered "school friendly", so I included xanthum gum in this recipe.  Some people may not be familiar with xanthan gum, however, it is an indigestible fiber, and does not need to be calculated into a ketogenic recipe. It is what makes the cake spongy and retain the rise from baking.  It also helps hold all of the oil and keep the ingredients emulsified.  It is not an ingredient I would choose to use on a daily basis, but sometimes you need to eat cake! I have never seen any adverse reaction to xanthan gum, but please run it by your dietitian just to be sure.

This is a super fast meal that can be eaten anytime of day.  Sometimes the eggs are scrambled, sometimes they are fried, I even microwave them if I'm in a huge rush.  The side fruit or vegetable is interchangeable and depends on what is currently available!

Of course, part of the ease in preparation comes from taking oil in syringes. Learning how to consume oil in this method allows for ingredients to be eaten plain (as many people like), not swimming in fat. This is a skill that is best learned slowly using small amounts of oil to start with.  Overtime, people master this technique and are more easily able to consume the fat.  You could swap some oil out for cream, mix some of the oil (or even mayonnaise) into the eggs and scramble them, but most likely you will have to have some oil or fat on the side if you are at a higher ratio.

I'll save you time if you don't want to read the whole review, DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT!  I really wanted this product to work.  In fact, I have purchased this little machine twice now, it just looks so keto friendly; it's small, it comes in fun colors for kids, it looks easy to use, you can take the cordless one anywhere, ect, ect... However, I have now spent more money on wasted ingredients than I have on the total cost of both machines.

When we were at the 4:1 ratio, this was a method that I came up with to combine a large portion of fat with a vegetable,  the goal was to visually "bulk up" a meal.  The amount of vegetables can sometimes look incredibly small sitting on a plate, trying to serve 15g of carrots in 11g of butter has resulted in meal refusal on more than one occasion in our house.  This is intended to be a side dish to be served alongside a protein.  This recipe is very flexible, you can use any vegetable or seasonings you like.  You will have to enter (into the ketocalculator) the needed ingredients of this recipe + a protein and possibly extra fat to meet individual needs.  I almost always used this on nights when the oven was already on, I have cooked it at many different temperatures, it has always turned out ok!  Don't be afraid to change the proportions of cream, egg and butter.  As long as the egg is included, it will cook up just fine.
