Death By Coconut

I love to experiment with flours and coconut flour is one of those I was desperate to try in a cake. It is quite heavy so doesn't always work in baking, but for this naturally gluten free coconut cake it is fabulous, this one is definitely one for coconut lovers though as it used the flour, coconut oil and milk!
