I thought I would experiment with some coconut flour that I had on hand.  A lot of people in the low carb world like it but I've never in my years doing this have used it. I adapted a recipe I found for a coconut bread and made it sweet. This is like a pound cake/sponge cake texture. It's really good. I put my homemade jam on it with butter. VERY GOOD. Would also be good for a strawberry shortcake. Hmmm, I wonder how it would be toasted up a bit in the toaster oven?! Chris loved it. He had 3 pieces right away and another 2 pieces later in the day. So I had to make another. He said "write this recipe down--it's a good one." He says this because when I normally experiment I don't always write it down and then can't exactly "remember" how it was made-especially weeks later when he requests a dish. LOL!

6 eggs
3/4 cup coconut flour
1 tsp Carmel DaVinci syrup
2 tablespoons Splenda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 stick of salted butter (softened)

Ok, now coconut flour either needs to be sifted or you just do it the easy way and make this all in your food processor! I took the easy way out. My hand always hurts after sifting...I hate it.

So...put the eggs in the processor and pulse a couple of times. Add butter and pulse again-and then add the rest of the ingredients. It will be thick. Spray a loaf pan (or you can do little muffins) with Pam and spread in the mixture. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. It will get a really nice brown on top. Let cool a few minutes and them take it out of the pan and put on a rack to cool down. Once it's cool it's easier to handle and less fragile.

p.s it just as good with JUST BUTTER ON IT!
p.s.s-make some ahead and freeze them.
p.s.s.s-you can add chopped nuts to this also(almost like amish friendship bread)
