  1. Do you know if this recipe has been tried without tigernut flour? If so, what adjustments were made to the recipe? I was hoping to see if anyone had tried this in the comments, but it looks like those are private. There isn’t a store to buy it from in my area, and I am hoping to make it tomorrow or I would just get it on Amazon. 🙂

    Thanks,

  2. This looks really yummy and I’m curious to try tigernuts. I do not use a microwave. Do you know what the baking time and heat setting would be in the oven?

  3. I added a pinch of ginger, clove and nutmeg to this and used cassava flour instead of tigernut. It’s delicious!

  4. I just tried this with subbing almond flour for tigernut and it did not work out great. the texture was much “rougher” than pictured. I also found the cake a little bland even though I added nutmeg, cloves, and a hint of ginger but I do think the texture issue could be a factor! If you try subbing almond flour maybe try reducing it.

  5. While we found the flavor favorable, the texture was something like wet sand or dry peanut butter. Yes it was moist. But it was uncomfortable to eat and swallow. At 3 minutes in microwave it was still batter-like. At 5 min, it was moist, yet sticky or chewy.

    Wondering how else to fix texture.

  6. FYI – I used a ripe banana instead of pumpkin, Dutch any sweetener and it was delicious and had a great texture! Def recommend as an alternative.

  7. I made this, it was good! I subbed casava flour for the tigernut so needed to double the coconut milk. I cooked for five minutes. I will make it again! I also made one for my little girl and added dairy free chocolate chips to hers, she liked it as well! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  8. I made this. Pretty dry for gluten free & I like more sweet so add more honey maybe. Coconut flour sucks moisture & i added about 1/2 tbsp more coconut cream but thought it was still dry. Cooked 6 1/2 mminuttes & the bottom was done but top was not. Big coffee mug. Been cooking gf for 7 years now.
