Sure! Here’s a recipe for a cake using coconut sugar:


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup coconut sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup shredded coconut (optional)
Coconut flakes for garnish (optional)

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan or line it with parchment paper.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.

In a separate large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and coconut sugar until light and fluffy.

Beat in the eggs, one at a time, ensuring each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next one. Stir in the vanilla extract.

Gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, mixing well after each addition. If using shredded coconut, fold it into the batter.

Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and spread it evenly.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once the cake has cooled, you can garnish it with coconut flakes if desired.

Slice and serve the cake, and enjoy!

This recipe should yield a delicious cake with a subtle coconut flavor and the natural sweetness of coconut sugar. Feel free to customize it further by adding frosting or other toppings of your choice. Enjoy your coconut sugar cake!

Where can I get the best coconut sugar?

The availability and quality of coconut sugar may vary depending on your location. Here are some suggestions on where you can find high-quality coconut sugar:

Local Health Food Stores: Check your local health food stores or organic markets as they often carry a variety of natural and alternative sweeteners, including coconut sugar. These stores typically focus on offering healthier and more sustainably sourced products.

Online Retailers: Numerous online retailers specialize in selling health foods, organic products, and alternative sweeteners. Popular platforms like Amazon, Thrive Market, or specialty websites dedicated to natural products may have a wide range of coconut sugar options to choose from. Make sure to read customer reviews and product descriptions to ensure the quality and authenticity of the product.

Farmers’ Markets: Visit farmers’ markets in your area, particularly those that feature organic or specialty food vendors. Local farmers or producers may offer coconut sugar directly, allowing you to inquire about their production methods and sourcing.

Specialty Asian or International Grocery Stores: Coconut sugar is commonly used in Asian cuisine, so specialty Asian grocery stores or international markets may carry a variety of coconut sugar brands. These stores may offer different types or variations of coconut sugar, such as palm sugar, which is similar to coconut sugar and derived from different palm trees.

Directly from Coconut Sugar Producers: In some regions, you may be able to find local coconut sugar producers or cooperatives that sell their products directly to consumers. This can ensure a more direct and traceable source of coconut sugar. Consider searching online or asking at local agricultural organizations or coconut farming communities.

When purchasing coconut sugar, it’s a good idea to look for organic and sustainably sourced options. Check the product labels for certifications such as USDA Organic, Fair Trade, or Rainforest Alliance, which can provide some assurance about the ethical and sustainable practices involved in the production of the coconut sugar.
