那个hawaii coconut flakes 要去哪里买

Hi Sonia,

Love all your recipes here. I'm thinking of trying out this one since I have leftover grated coconut. Is it ok to use fresh grated coconut instead of desiccated coconut/ coconut flakes? I assume coconut flakes are same as desiccated coconut? Appreciate your view.

Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

YY, the Haiwaian coconut flakes that I used is slightly wet, thicker if compare to fresh grated coconut ,I guess it is ok to replace with grated coconut . Coconut flakes texture is difference from desiccated coconut which is dry and light .

bakergirlyy said...

Thanks Sonia. Very helpful advice.

Btw, tried it this morning. It was so good! :)

Sonia, I can't coconut flakes so I use desiccated instead. The feedback was superb n I hv been baking these for the past 3 weeks due to popular demands. I m gg to try to use fresh grated coconut the next round. Thank u for sharing such a good recipe

can I know what butter will be the best for this cake? I tried baking using SCS butter, the cake turn to be very compact. When I use Anchor, it is very fragile. Can you advise me on this?

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Mei Yian, I used Anchor , maybe due to oven temp ?
