Baking with coconut flour can be a little tricky so I want to give you a few tips before you get started.
- First, sift your flour. It’s a simple step but it makes a difference in the texture of the cake.
- Allow the eggs to come to room temperature.
- Coconut flour absorbs a lot of liquid so don’t add more than what the recipe says to. The batter will be thick!
