I LOVE this forum !!! Thank you!! Did I mention that i tried several cooking forums and my questions ( which were not all that complicated ) remained unanswered for the most part.
I am very very very grateful, believe me, for any help you can give.
Well, the report is that i just tried the recipe. I took a 1/3 cup measure and filled it half with sunflower oil and half with cinnamon applesauce.
mixed the batter as usual.
The final consistency was almost identical, but the cake rose higher !
it is cooling now.
I bake things for a lady friend of mine and her family.
She has been using coconut oil in a big way for the past little while.
( Did you know that coconut oil is said to help alzheimers.??
something about how it helps the brain receptors or something.
I have an article on it.. but that is for another venue.!!)
Her last check up with the doctor gave her a high cholesterol reading and coconut oil is the only saturated fat she eats.. Her family are all vegetarian/vegan.
So I am trying to cut out the sat fat.. and go for sunflower or other oils.
I think the cake is going to work well with the substitutions
Thank you again.
I am going to post another question about something else she requested, but will keep this thread dedicated.
I will also report if the taste test works for my friend.. and whether this cake is more chewy than the other.( which I think it might well be).
Thank you again to all.
I guess I am profuse in that.. but I am not a cook and ...well,
