To make the icing on top look pretty, try running a skewer along the top as if you were drawing a chess board.
It's an old-fashioned techinque I learned from my grandma when she would bake cakes.
Coconut is a superior flour replacement to work with on the ketogenic diet because you don’t need to use as much of it as you would use almond flour (another great low carb flour replacement).
I always opt for ¼ of the amount of coconut flour than almond flour, using a ratio of 1:4.
