Coconut Flour, Finally!

My coconut flour order finally arrived today and I didn't waste any time at all. I used by best friend Google to find recipes and decided on Candice's Low Carb Cupcakes. The thing I like about Candice is she has a recipe for 12 cupcakes and another one for 6 cupcakes. I made the 6 cupcake recipe because I didn't wanna waste ingredients in case it didn't turn out well. Oh but it did! Look at my cupcake!

Eat me! It's okay! I'm Low Carb!

Isn't it beeyootiful? I'm going to make more! And lots of other things! So yummy and the texture was very cake-like. The frosting is a simple cream cheese frosting using Splenda and stevia. 

Have you tried coconut flour? What other recipes would you recommend I try?

You definitely should! I know you like to make sweets too and this was definitely good!

How did you make the frosting?

Dee said...

d.o.wife, hello! I just made a simple cream cheese frosting. 8 oz cream cheese, 1 stick butter (preferably unsalted), beat that in the mixer until well mixed. Then add your sweetener. It depends on how sweet you want it. I used 3 scoops of stevia but realized it doesn't get sweet enough so I added a quarter cup of Splenda and a teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Don't use the Davinci or Torani SF syrups because it will make the frosting too liquidy. If it is too thick, add a bit of cream, one teaspoon at a time until you get your desired consistency.

Hope that helps.

the brownie recipe is wonderful

Hi Gen! For the cupcakes there was a coconut taste but I think it's because of the shredded coconut. DH loved it because he likes the coconut flavor. I haven't made a lot with the flour yet to see if there's a coconut flavor in everything. And I haven't tried almond flour. Too expensive to buy and ship here.

Hi FarmGirl! I am checking out that recipe right now! I love brownies!
