COCONUT CAKE !!
« on: April 03, 2010, 12:05:37 PM »
 This recipe is absolutely heavenly!  ;D
COCONUT CAKE

4 eggs (4 carbs)
1 cups almond flour (18 net carbs)
1 cup coconut unsweetened (10 net carbs)
cup xylitol (or splenda)
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 tsp baking powder


Beat 4 eggs. Add coconut and vanilla. Stir in xylitol (or splenda), baking powder and almond flour. (batter will be thick) pour into greased 9x9 baking pan. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 in preheated oven.

The entire cake is 32 net carbs so depending on how you cut it up will depend on the single serving carbs. I cut the cake into 20 servings so it comes out too 1.5 carbs per serving.

Can you tell me what brand of xylitol you buy? There are so many on Amazon to choose from.

Thanks!

Yes Jo and it's great!!   I had made it before, but ate it all before I took a picture! lol   I baked it again last night and had a piece for breakfast this morning.  In the bakery book it's listed as 20 carbs, but I noticed above that Umpa says it has 32.  You should try it!  I was thinking this morning it might be tasty with some sugar free cream cheese icing on top too.   ;D   I try to only bake one thing a week now so I don't over do it.

 I wonder if you can leave the coconut out and it be just like a coffee cake maybe add a little cinnamon?

I guess that maybe a question for Umpa

It's a whole cup of coconut, so I just don't know what would happen if you left it out..??  I am sure Umpa can tell you.   There may be another recipe in the bakery book for something closer to coffee cake....??

The carb count changed because the almond flour I used for The Bakery Book is unblanched at 4 carbs a cup.I have never made it without coconut,what would you want to subsitute Jo? You need mass ;)

Oh ok!  Thanks Umpa.  I just checked my bag of almond four.  It's Bob's Red Mill and it is blanched.  I hadn't even noticed that little detail.   :-\   ;)

Umpa I dont know I like easy recipes and this is a easy cake recipe . It doesnt have ingredients that I have to buy and only use once . I want like a coffee cake but easy like this . There are a bunch of good ones in the book but I am not a Baker that is for sure . LOL 
I guess this could be a coffee cake  ;)

 I like coconut so I am gonna try this one . The only unsweet coconut I can find is in the freezer section ,is that the one yall use ? Do I just pour it out and let it dry out a little to get the mositure out ?
