question: i have the coconut milk (light-is that ok?), i see i can add nuts. how coconutty is the flour (never used it before)? i mean, could i use regular gf flour, with coconut milk and coconut shreds where nuts would be--or would it be nowhere near as coconutty, or maybe too much so, or how would you know if this is your recipe and not what i'm suggesting here....sigh...

i wouldnt be asking if they didnt sound so great!!i used to love nongf coconut cake so the nostalgia is powerful, here! thanks for bringing it back!

G.F. Veg: Sometimes the light contains gums or thickeners which can adjust the outcome, but you should be ok.
The coconut-y-ness of of the coconut depends on the company who makes it, most are fairly mild. If you skip the coconut flour and use the milk and flakes you'll have a coconut-y muffin. You might also light this recipe: http://benevolentkitchen.blogspot.com/2009/03/mini-coconut-pound-cakes.html using an egg replacer, (http://benevolentkitchen.blogspot.com/2009/04/egg-replacement-options.html), for the eggs or this vegan coconut cheesecake: http://benevolentkitchen.blogspot.com/2009/05/coconut-cheesecake-dairy-free-soy-free.html
