I am definitely going to try this one… Most of my cakes are healthy and I am always searching for good yummy healthy recipes.
Question: can I use Canola oil instead of coconut oil? Or is coconut a must?
Thanks

Ciccio ...

Thanks All for your kind comment, Dina Coconut Oil is a must it’s Healthy & solidifys in fridge, You won’t put on weight using Coconut oil as it good for you, however the same cannot be said about Canola oil which is all Genically modified nowdays and will be stored as fat in the body asap, none of the ingredients can be exchanged for anything else in this recipe sorry

Ciccio ...

oops forgot to say Coconut oil not expensive, in NZ found quite often at New World supermarkets (or health store) you don’t have to buy the expensive Virgin Press, just the ordinary one, and try using it to fry in, you will never use another oil again, (doesn’t have a strong flavour) as it has the highest smoke point of anyone so it does not burn in the pan…Handy Tip for anyone who like cooking…ps…. I’m a Chef and use all the time

I thought this would be perfect for my nephew (he has major food allergies) until I saw the coconut oil…he is allergic to coconut. :/ Do you think there is absolutely nothing else that may work in place of coconut oil for this cake? Looks so good!

Ciccio ...

I used to be intolarent to coconut but I can have the oil (to scared to try normal coconut I vomit for an hour last time) maybe try a skin test ( I too have allergies ie Fish urrgh!!! die)
You could try using butter, ghee, it needs to be something that solidifies in the fridge as you keep this cake in the fridge, hope this helps maybe take recipe into a health store & ask then what would solidify like coconut oil
