Are you looking for a way to make delicious vegan cakes without using traditional flours? If so, you may want to consider using alternative flours such as almond flour or coconut flour. While it's not interchangeable with almond flour, coconut flour is a great option for paleo and keto baking. Coconut flour is made from dried coconut meat that is ground into powder. It contains no grains or gluten, and is higher in calories, fat and protein than traditional flours.
It is also very rich in fiber and highly absorbent, so a little goes a long way. When baking with coconut flour, it's important to keep in mind that it imparts a coconut flavor and can make baked goods very dense. It's best to use it only in recipes designed for this purpose, or when mixed with other grain-free flours. Coconut flour doesn't produce crunchy baked goods like almond flour does, but it works amazingly well in cake and muffin recipes.
If you have a nut allergy, coconut flour is an excellent alternative to almond flour. My second book, Gluten-Free Cupcakes, contains dozens of recipes that use coconut flour, almond flour, or a combination of both. This book is perfect for birthdays and other special occasions. If you're looking for recipes with any of these flours, be sure to check out my almond flour recipes and my coconut flour recipes.
With these alternative flours, you can make delicious vegan cakes that everyone will love!.
