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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Almond flour does not have the same characteristics as Tiger nut. Tiger nut is much more starchy. I'm glad it came together.
