Thanks for the birthday wishes, everyone. I’m still celebrating—today is the last day of birthday month.
Flour Girl, the recipe on my blog gives the measurements I used, so yes, use 200 grams of sugar (the original recipe called for 400 grams, way to much for my taste). If you don’t have coconut oil, use vegetable oil. Use the same amount as my recipe calls for—1/2 cup or .12 ml.
Necho, coconut oil got a bad rap in the 1970s when it was compared to other oils in tests. Later, it was revealed that the tests used hydrogenated coconut oil, never healthy, regardless of the type of oil. Coconut oil contains no cholesterol. It does contain saturated fat (so does butter), but the saturated fat is lauric acid, a fat now believed to be healthy when added to diets. Look for organic virgin coconut oil that is not refined, bleached or deodorized (RBD).
