      Check your recipe for the coconut cake/frosting. Step #9 says add ½ CUP of SALT!!!

      1. Rosie Lane says:

        You’re right! We’ve fixed that up – should be 1/2 a teaspoon!

    2. Tamara says:

      Your recipe calls for Natvia baking mix, which I cannot find on your list of available products. What could I use as a substitute? Would any low carb baking mix work?

      1. Rosie Lane says:

        Hi Tamara, the baking mix is listed here: https://www.natvia.com/products/natvia-baking-and-icing-mix/ and is available from Coles and Woolworths supermarkets in Australia. If you can’t find it, you can use the Natvia canister as a substitute 🙂

    3. Helen says:

      Please can you give me a breakdown of carbs and fibre etc in this recipe and per serving?

    4. Tara says:

      Can you please clear a couple of things up for me? The ingredients ask for 1/2 Baking Powder (1/2 of what?) and 1 1/2 Coconut Milk (again, 1 1/2 of what?). However, Step 8 of the Method has the quantity of Baking Powder being 1 1/2, so is it 1/2 or 1 1/2? I’d love to have a go at making this but need to know the quantities. Thanks 🙂

      1. Rosie Lane says:

        Hi Tara, the correct quantities are 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, and 1 1/2 cups of coconut milk. We’ve fixed those up in the recipe 🙂

    5. Cindy Bentley says:

      Where can I see the nutritional values of the cake? You say low carb, but give no values.

      1. Rosie Lane says:

        Hi Cindy, we’ve added the macros for this recipe down the bottom 🙂

    6. Mary says:

      What’s the difference between natvia baking mix and a cup of natvia? Doesn’t state clearly on the package as all products say natvia

      1. Rosie Lane says:

        Hi Mary – the two are the same, the baking mix is just a finer blend of Natvia so it’s better for cooking with. I’ve updated the recipe so it’s a bit easier to read, hopefully that clears it up 🙂

    7. Trisha says:

      Also it does not say anything about coconut yoghurt in ingredients, just method part

      1. Rosie Lane says:

        Hi Trisha, I’ve updated the recipe to include the yoghurt in the ingredients as well – this can just be natural yoghurt. Hope this helps! 🙂

    8. Rene says:

      This recipe sounds nice. Love coconut but isn’t written well. 200g Desiccated Natural Coconut Yogurt should this be listed in the main ingredient?

      1. Rosie Lane says:

        Hi Rene, I’ve edited the recipe to make it a bit easier to read – the yoghurt should just be natural yoghurt (not desiccated etc..I can see how that’s confusing!) Hope this helps 🙂

    9. Shari says:

      What exactly is Natvia Baking Mix? Also why is it called “Healthy”, it has loads of fat, butter, oil, cream cheese and salt. It should be call Sugar Free Coconut Cake.

      OH just read your reply re the Natvia Baking Mix which I assume means the Natvia boxed sweetener for baking (similar to the Natvia Icing MIx for baking).

    10. Michelle says:

      I made the cake according to the recipe however tin size is not specified.I baked in a 22cm round tin at 160′(fan forced) oven . at 40 mins it was still liquid in centre. Judged it done at 55mins but it was v moist and broke on removing from tin.
      Can you recommend tin size.
      Also cool in tin?
      Taste was lovely but it was more a moist dessert than ‘cake’

      1. Patrick says:

        Hi Michelle, great suggestion. We’ll make sure to include tin size in our recipes from now on.
