Can I Substitute Regular Flour for This Cake?

Coconut flour can be a fussy ingredient to work with. I don’t recommend using regular flour for this recipe. However, if you are looking to make a version with the regular flour, check out this recipe for Yellow Cake for Two.

Can I Use Dairy Free Milk?

Yes. I used oat milk for this cake and it turned out perfect. Both versions are OK to use with this.

Oil

I like to use sunflower oil for baking ( see the recipe card ). However, you can go with your preferred brand/type of oil. I do recommend using a neutral tasting oil.

Recipe Notes

Your Pan

I made this cake twice. Once in a mini loaf pan ( approx 5 in) and once in a 6 inch round pan. They both work great for this amount of batter. Baking time is the same for both. See the recipe card for the ones I like/used.

Frosting

This cake will go great with any type/flavor of frosting. Pictured is a simple chocolate buttercream. You can go homemade or just grab a can from the grocery store…your choice! If you are looking for some ideas, browse the frosting section of the recipe index.
