Do you have a carb count for this?

I tried to plug it into to my Master Chef program but it doesn't list coconut flour so I can't tell you. Sure looks good

I have Aloha Nu brand coconut flour. For 2 Tablespoons, it contains 1.5g fat, 10g carbs, 9g fiber, 2g protein, and provides 26 calories. You would have to multiply those numbers by 12 to get the amounts for 3/4 cup of the flour.

Did you try this cake? Is it good? I'd sure like to know, because my birthday is next week, and I've been wanting a chocolate cake. :yum: :yum: :yum:

Hey Nancy:
Thanks for the recipe. I've been on LC for a year now and never had baked a dessert until yesterday. This cake was wonderful, I am sure it would have been even more perfect had I followed it to a tee (I don't use any added sweeteners). I had dessicated coconut, which I ground to get a "flour". I am not sure that is coconut flour...but it worked--I probably could have added more coconut milk.

I frosted it with 2 squares of 70% chocolate, 1/4 cup of cocoa powder, 5 oz of cream cheese, and 1 tbsp of butter.

It tasted like an almond joy! Thanks.
