    What is the reason for using “butter (NOT coconut oil)”?

    • Victoria M says:

      In the instructions you mention mixing the coconut oil plus the applesauce or butter. I’m assuming that was a mistake, and was supposed to be butter, since in the ingredients you only have butter listed.

  2. Hi Victoria! I thought I had already mentioned the reason why to not use coconut oil in place of butter, but I guess it didn’t successfully post. Yes, I did make a mistake in the instructions. ( Sorry about that! Good job for noticing! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) When I first made the recipe I used coconut oil, because we didn’t have any butter on hand. YUCK! Coconut oil provides a flaky, coconut-y, and bread-like cake….Not very appetizing. This cake needs something that only butter seems to provide. ๐Ÿ™‚ So yes, only use butter in this recipe. Enjoy!

      I made this but is the amount of sweetener correct? I was also confused about the butter and coconut oil and applesauce.
      I ate one piece with whipping cream.
      I think our horse will enjoy the treat.

      I enjoyed the movie The good lie.

    • Joanne,
      The sweetener amount is correct. The cake only has a hint of sweetness..the kind of cake you enjoy with a cup of coffee and whipped cream. It really depends on what stevia you buy. We buy the brands Omica and Pure Organics…very potent. It doesn’t matter what you stevia you are purchasing, as long as you are not buying stevia in the raw. Stevia in the Raw uses a filler called maltodextrin that raises your blood sugar like crazy. Just watch for fillers. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Scrumptious! Delicious! My entire family enjoyed this cake yesterday. I altered it slightly for my daughter who has an egg allergy – switching out the eggs for two flax eggs and omitting the egg white step all together. I also doubled the stevia, because my family has a sweet tooth. I applaud your recipe – it was a home run!

  4. Rhonda says:

    What size pan did you use?

  5. Nikki says:

    Could I use Trim Healthy Mama baking blend with this recipe? If so how would I alter it. Thanks

    • laundrymoms says:

      Hi Nikki!

      You could try 2 cups of baking blend and go from there. We’ve never done it that way so I’m not exactly sure.
