      the recipe I used called for coconut oil - 1/2 cup. One word of warning, really grease your tin or it'll be a bitch to get out! Not really sure I was overly enamoured of it to be honest, a bit on the dry side, but that was my first attempt. Good luck, let us know how you get on!

              I'll be intrigued to hear what you think of it. Make sure you report back so I know if its worth another crack at it

                Whenever I make anything with coconut flour, I always thin it out with a little water so it's a little more light and fluffy. That coconut flour absorbs most anything you throw at it...darn stuff!
                I grok, therefore I am.

                  I use this same recipe, but I add extra liquid (cream or coconut milk) to thin the batter and make it moister (it's too thick and dense, as is) along with some sparking water to add fluffiness and I separate the eggs, whip the whites and fold them into the batter last. It makes a HUGE difference in fluffiness!

                    for those adding water/liquid to make it fluffier, can you please post how much you use and the steps in your recipe.

                      I mix everything together except for the whipped egg whites, which I add last. As for liquid, I go by feel (maybe 1/2-2/3 cup total? Maybe 1/4-1/3 cup sparkling water?) I wish I had measured it! I add enough liquid that the batter isn't stiff but more wet, yet not totally pourable.
