I've been reading a bit about cooking with coconut flour and I ordered some from the Gold Coast. Most of the recipes don't seem right in the proportions though. Whereas you would use say 2 cups flour in a cake recipe most of the ones I have seen only call for 1/4 cup of coconut flour. Has anyone tried baking with coconut flour and if so, how did it turn out?

I have some coconut flour and I have made muffins and pancakes with it. Now that you mention it, the quantities called for in the recipes did seem a bit small, but everything turned out ok.
some one asked where to buy coconut flour.
I have just received 4x500g packets from NIULIFE being imported and sold by kokonut pacific
total cost $40aud inc gst and postage.
Delivery time 4 days

Just ordered some coconut flour myself from Nui and I'm ready to play as soon as it arrives.
I also bought a book called Cooking with Coconut Flour and the first thing he says is that the quantities will look "wrong" compared to a standard flour recipes.
For example, the gingerbread cookies have 6 eggs to 1/2 cup c/flour.
I can't wait to start baking again!
Finally got my coconut flour, my sweeteners and a spare 5 mins and made up some chocolate cupcakes...
THEY ARE AWESOME.
I used a mix of xylitol and Natvia and they taste SO GOOD they must be bad for you.
Sherrie - can I post the recipe out of a cook book or is that a copywright infringement?
You've just gotta try these...
Here's the recipe for Chocolate Cupcakes (borrowed from "Cooking with Coconut Flour" by Bruce Fife)
3 tbspns butter or coconut oil melted
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 tbspns coconut milk
3/4 cup sugar (I used xylitol/Natvia)
1/4 tspn salt
1/4 tspn vanilla essence
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 tspn baking powder
Mix butter/coconut oil and cocoa powder.
In a separate bowl mix next 5 ingredients. When well combined pour in cocoa mixture and mix together
Sift baking powder & coconut flour and add to wet ingredients.
Whisk until there are no lumps.
Spoon into muffin tins and bake at 200 deg C for 16 - 18 mins
I left mine to cool in the tin.
Had them for dessert last night with cream poured over them and still lost 1/2kg overnight
I wonder what the net carbs would be for these little gems??
Just cooked these, the house smells yummy and I admit to having a little lick of the bowl
I got 8 cupcakes, 6 would have made them bigger though, I worked out the carb count to be around 7grms carb per cake, now.. trying to be patient for them to cool, so I can eat one..
Ive not worked out the other counts though, my bad (to be honest I dont care a great deal.. lol)
oh, the only adjustment I made was plain milk instead of coconut milk, I was being a tight wad and didnt want to open a can for 2 tablespns..
Thanks for the cupcake recipe, I use coconut flower for pancakes, similar to oopsie rolls, I just make them flat. Going to my grandson's birthday on Sun. this is perfect to bring so I don't
get tempted by cake.
I made the Choc. Cupcakes today, really good. If 8 cupcakes has 7 carbs ea. I made 6, so
I'll have to make them smaller . But 7 carbs is a bit high if only eating 20
carbs a day. So I'll have to cut something out to make up for the carbs I had in that muffin
today. Also wondering what the carbs are in Choc. Muffins. Haven't made them yet. How do I
find the Egg McMuffin rec. I' don't know where to look for it.
I'm not sure if this is the one you mean but one of our members used oopsie rolls to make egg mc muffins. I'm assuming she had a batch of ready made oopsie rolls and to make her muffins she fried a couple with her egg or she put the oopsie batter in egg rings and cooked them that way: apinchofhealth.com/forum/vbb/s…rb-bread-Try-Oopsie-rolls!
Oh and I almost forgot re coconut flour, I wouldn't use coconut flour straight away if just starting out as it is still pretty carby.
I need to make these the various ways to use oopsies is very tempting - sometimes there is nothing better than to eat food as if it was a sandwich - just 2 hands - of course those desserts look great too
I should make oopsies again soon, I have no idea why I don't, I love them just as they are!
