Darned if they did not look the same but when it came and I opened the box, I knew I had goofed! Coconut Flakes are alot fluffier and bigger and these were shredded so fine it would be awesome in a cookie recipe but I still decided to go ahead and make our dessert. Now, it really isn't a cake and even when we make it the regular way it does not hold up like a cake. It is more along the lines of a coconut pudding like cake. It is suppose to fall all over your plate, not sit up like a cake. I wanted to explain that so you understand the pictures I am about to show you.
3 cups Bob's Red Mill Coconut Flour
1 cup (white cake mix or cake flour)
1 Tablespoon Bob's Red Mill Baking Powder
1/2 Cup Bob's Red Mill Powdered Buttermilk
2 1/2 Cups Water
3/4 Vegetable Oil
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
1/2 Cup Coconut Sugar (I already had some)
1/2 Tablespoon Bob's Red Mill Sea Salt
I did not use all 4 cups of the Coconut Flour because I wasn't sure how it would bake and since it says High Fiber I had a feeling it would be more thick so I wanted to lighten it up a bit. Mix all the ingrediants together and put in oven on 350 and bake for about 40 minutes. Test it because our oven cooks faster so yours may or may not be 40 minutes.
The dessert needs to cool down some but still warm to the touch so that the topping can "leak" down into the dessert.
16 oz. Sour Cream
1 Cup Coconut Sugar
8 oz. Cool Whip
1 1/2 Cups of Bob's Red Mill Coconut Flakes (picture is with shredded coconut)
While the dessert is cooling down mix your Cool Whip and Coconut Sugar together and then add the Sour Cream. Add Coconut Flakes last. If your dessert is cool but still a touch warm, pour all of this on top of the dessert. It is suppose to sink in a little into the dessert to help make it a little soggy like. Then refridgerate for about 2 to 3 hours before serving. It will have to stay in the fridge because of the cool whip. When you go to cut it, it will fall apart some so don't be alarmed, it is suppose to do that. If you want a firmer dessert then instead of 3 cups of Coconut Flour, do all 4 cups and leave out the white cake mix. I tried it both ways and we still prefer the softer one.
