Coconut Layer Cake

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I made the Coconut Layer Cake from the Gluten Free Baking Classics cookbook by Annalise Roberts and I had to come here and tell everyone how amazing it was! So delicious! Just like "regular" cake. I was so pleasantly surprised.

Now I am off to buy the sorghum and millet flours so I can start baking some bread :D

I found the rice, tapioca and potato starch at an asian market nearby. It was so much less expensive than anywhere else. Is there a similar type market that would have the sorghum and millet flours? I just don't have 7 or 8 dollars for a small packet of flour...

The Asian Market here sometimes carries sorghum flour. Haven't seen millet anywhere.

So glad the coconut cake turned out for you.

Hi;

Don't know where you are but in Ontario, a lot of different flours can be found at Bulk Barn. Also Bob Mills. Millet is usually easy to fine.

Good luck in the baking!

I have made this cake countless times and it never fails to impress. Of all the desserts I have made, this is the one that gets requested over and over. If you don't own it already, this recipe alone is worth buying Annalise's book.

I have Annalise's cookbook but have never tried the Coconut Cake recipe. I wonder if white rice flour could be substituted for the Authentic Foods superfine brown rice flour. Anyone tried that?

I have made some bread from her cookbook. I especially like the Multigrain Sandwich Bread, which has seeds in it (sesame, flax and sunflower seeds).

I used white rice flour and it was great. In the beginning of her book, she mentions that you can use it but she says that it could affect the taste in some cases. Since I don't know what the coconut cake tastes like with the brown rice flour, I can't compare them but this was terrific.

Glad to hear white rice flour works well! I think I do remember reading that in her book.
