Baking with Coconut Oil

chasing, Aug 15, 11:28pm
Does anyone have some recipes which use coconut oil? Don't mind if they are sweet or dinner one. I have done a google search and there appears to be only overseas sites.

You can make mock chocolate (usually called "bark" for whatever reason) and some cake recipes.

Personally I use coconut oil for cooking savoury things. Anything that needs frying is fried in coconut oil - fish, steaks, potatoes etc. It can be heated up more than any oil or butter without burning.

It makes an insane cake. the most incredibly rich thing I've ever eaten. It's amazing.
It turns out very flat and almost slice-like. But I made two small cakes (twice this recipe) as our wedding cakes, and everyone got a piece, and some to take home, and there was heaps left over. that's how rich it is.

Freezes beautifully too.

I mainly fry/roast with my coconut oil, as I don't have much of a sweet tooth, and I'm rubbish at baking anyway. However, here is a really good NZ site (I have made quite a few of her recipes). The link should take you to recipes using coconut oil:

Edit: link doesn't take you to search results, but just type coconut oil in the search bar to the right :)

Here is a quick & easy chocolate truffle recipe using coconut oil, for those days when you need chocolate, and you need it fast:

3 Tablespoons cacao or cocoa
2 teaspoons coconut oil
2 teaspoons honey
Mix, mix, mix! And eat and feel better ;)
