Have you heard of Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil ? I only found out about it back in 2011 when they had sent me a jar . Back then I really didn't know what to use it for so I had made Chocolate Mug Cake (recipe will be lower down in this post) but I started to get a bit braver and made a few other things with this Virgin Coconut Oil. Just last week I didn't have any extra virgin olive oil to grease the pizza pan for pizza so I used Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil. I have also use it to make eggs and cake. I even used it to make fried rice.
There are a bunch of great recipes on their website I would love to try and I will be trying them in the near future. Check out their recipes.
Chocolate Mug Cake
a microwavable mug
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
3 Tablespoons milk
3 Tablespoons oil (I used coconut oil)
a drop or 2 of Vanilla
- Mix flour, sugar and cocoa:
- Spoon in 1 egg
- Pour in milk and oil, and mix well
- Put in microwave for 3 minutes on maximum power
- Wait until it stops rising and sets in the mug
My husband isn't really a big fan of coconuts but he love it in the mug cake and keeps asking me to make him some.
