coconut cream cheese pound cake ingredients help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey,

Anyone knows if I can use extra virgin coconut oil if a recipe calls for coconut shortening (oil)?  it says 2 cups.  Also, coconut milk (1/2c) and cream of coconut (4T).. just wondering since I have Savoy coconut cream on hand and if it makes a difference.

Also, flaked coconut.. is it the bakers sweetened or unsweetened?

 

Thanks!

Not too clear on the first question but I can maybe help.

When a recipe calls for an amt of shortening (solid fat) and you want or need to substitute it needs to be for another solid fat (butter, lard are both solid fats)

Really need to see the recipe complete with instructions as it is pretty darn hard to decide how all those other coconut ingredients are supposed to work in the grand scheme of things.

Plus it would help to rationalize the whys and you will understand and remember for next time.

Plus I kinda wanna pirate your recipe and give it a whirl this spring ;-)
