Typically coconut desserts do not require coconut extract but if you want to get a lasting flavor then using the extract in this coconut cake recipe is a good idea. To bake a perfect pound cake always follow the method of separating the egg whites and only beat the yolks first. Once the batter is mixed using the remaining ingredients, beat the egg whites till frothy and carefully fold into the batter in the end. This will result in a scrumptious light and crumbly texture in cake recipes. Pound cakes also yield a nice texture when you add a good quality vanilla extract. Alternately you could also add vanilla bean paste if you wish and you can easily find it at any baking store.
Coconut flakes have a subtle sweetness that adds an almost nutty flavor and gives dense texture in desserts recipes. A healthier option for dessert recipes would be to opt for unsweetened coconut flakes to cut down the refined sugar that is present in sweetened coconut flakes. Sometimes sugar can overpower the earthy taste of coconut flakes in its natural form, it is better to use the unsweetened coconut flakes instead. Coconuts are also low in carbs and loaded with fiber. Coconut oil and weight loss have been proven to be correlated and is used for losing the stubborn belly fat.
