I made chocolate buns yesterday and yet again they sunk in the middle. They still tasted nice and I made some chocolate sauce to put on top. When that was microwaved till the sauce went runny and served with ice cream the boys said it was as good as fudge cake they've had in restaurants. They must have been good cos OH had 2 and I had 1, I made 20 and there's 10 left.
I'm not going to be posting any pictures of my sad shrunken cakes though. I do love to see other peoples efforts. It gives me something to aspire to.
You make me laugh Magggzzz, it doesn't matter though as it sounds like everyone enjoyed them These probably look a bit explosive and brown but they're not burnt, the coconut flour tends to brown like this. The problem I have with gluten free range of processed offerings at the supermarket is that they are loaded with additives and they tend to put rice flour as the flour substitute, which I can't eat either so this is a simple recipe if you really want your cake and eat it
1/3 cup coconut flour 5 tablespoons of butter OR coconut oil OR a mixture of both 4 eggs (not large) 2 tablespoons of honey 1/2 teaspoon of gluten free baking powder
Add whatever else you like, spices, fruit, chocolate pieces I put chopped dates and cranberries in these ones. Soften the oil/butter and beat in the eggs. Add the honey spices and fruit, mix well. Add the flour and baking powder. It will look rather wet but leave it to stand for 10 minutes and the moisture get's absorbed by the flour.
Get round spoonfuls and flatten to a patty on a greased baking sheet and cook for approx 12 -15 minutes 200c
LL, this is the recipe I used when I baked gingerbread men with our little one. It's a very good mix and doesn't spoil for being battered! You can get lots of colours for the icing. There are loads of recipes on line.
