Just a quick post on how to toast coconut flakes. I purposely made it so that you toast your coconut flakes at the same temperature that you use when baking cupcakes. Which is pretty convenient, methinks.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Spread the coconut flakes in a thin layer on a baking sheet.
- Bake for 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 minutes. Keep an eye on ’em, as the burn easily.
My favorite way to use this is as a garnish for cakes. What are your favorite ways to use toasted coconut?
