Can you substitute flaked coconut for shredded coconut in a recipe?
It depends to a certain extent on how they are being used.. If they are baked or mixed into the item, it can simply be left out. There is not likely to be much change in the …recipe other than the flavor.. In some items, say a fruit salad, sesame seeds can provide a flavor boast, try it and see if you like it before sharing!. For decoration, you could used crushed nuts instead of coconut. (MORE)
The ingredient is shredded and dried fresh unsweetened meat from amature coconut that contains a moisture content of 3%. Desiccatedcoconut is used the same as flaked sweetened… coconut in any recipe. (MORE)
Yeah, of course. It might not be as sweet, though so I suggest adding like a tablespoon of sugar, depending on how much coconut flakes your using.
