Tips & notes

For this recipe, you can use a liquid or a solid sweetener. I’ve tried one cake with agave sirup and one with cane sugar, which was better.

The kind of oil that you are using does not really matter: you can use any oil or margarine. The coconut one just gives a good flavor and consistency to the cake.

Also, heating the cake at two different temperatures gives it a crunchy texture from the outside, but a soft one from the inside. My fav’. 😇  If you do not like this, you can just cook it at 300°F / 150°C for 50 to 60 minutes.
