I have a question about the recipe "Banana, Coconut, Chocolate Chip Snack Cake" from ATG117. Should the coconut oil be melted before adding it?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
I did not melt the coconut oil and it needn't be melted, but because I mixed the batter by hand, I stirred it around a bit in the measuring cup to soften it and make it a bit easier to incorporate. This is something I should clarify in the recipe, once I figure out how to edit recipes.
Where I'm living coconut oil is not in solid form, rather in a bottle much like olive oil. So I didn't need to melt it, but I'm adding a pic of the loaf and it's texture after few changes i made (1/2 cup dark brown sugar,1/2 cup granulated sugar, 3 bananas...4.5 Tbsp coconut oil, 1-1/4 cup of flour mixed with 1/2 tsp of baking powder and 1/2 tsp baking soda)
