What type of flour? Can you use almond Flour?

I use all purpose flour. I have never used almond flour before so I don't know if that will work. If you try almond flour please come back and let us know how it turned out.

Is there any way I can use a different type of coconut? My grocery store doesn't carry unsweetened flakes, and come to think of it, I don't think they carry unsweetened anything :/

Hi Ashley, You can use sweetened coconut. Your cake will just be a tad bit sweeter. The sweetened coconut toasts faster than unsweetened so keep an eye on it when it is in the broiler. Thanks Stephanie

Putting and ad right in the middle of the recipe is bad. It then causes use to have to print 2 sheets of paper. WHAT A WASTE.

Thank you for letting me know. I will let my Ad management company know. Ads are tricky. I know they can be ANNOYING!!! However, they are how I get paid versus charging you for the recipe or making you buy a cookbook. Wouldn't it be absurd to charge you $1.00 to print or view this recipe? So even though they are a waste sometimes let's just be thankful they pay me versus you having to pay me. -Stephanie
