Gluten Free Coconut Pudding Cakes

Sometimes when looking for a gluten free dessert it helps to expand our horizons in terms of culture or countries. Thailand for example offers some very gluten free friendly options. After all, Thailand is a small country that doesn’t grow wheat so their culinary culture is more rice based.

This recipe is not only naturally gluten free but dairy and refined sugar free as well.

The cakes are a cross between a pudding and a cake. I feel they are best served warm with a big dollop of coconut cream, some toasted coconut flakes, and perhaps a couple of berries or mango chunks for color.

To get the cream from the coconut milk, simply chill a can of good quality, full fat coconut milk in the fridge (or if you are impatient like me, in the freezer for a few minutes) and the cream will rise to the top and solidify. You simply scrape it off and store in the fridge for when the cakes are ready to serve. Use the coconut milk left after removing the cream to make the cakes.

Recipe notes: I used Wholesome Sweeteners Coconut Palm Sugar, Thai Kitchen Organic Coconut Milk, Erawan White Rice Flour, and unsweetened coconut flakes. As always make sure the vanilla extract you use is pure – not imitation which could contain gluten. For even more coconut flavor you can add a teaspoon of coconut extract, just make sure it’s gluten free!

Gluten-Free Coconut Pudding Cakes Recipe

Gluten Free Coconut Pudding Cakes

Ingredients

Coconut oil for preparing the ramekins
1 (13.66 ounce) can full fat coconut milk, chilled
2 large eggs
½ cup coconut palm sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
½ cup white rice flour
4 tablespoons unsweetened coconut flakes
Berries or other fruit, optional

Directions

Grease four 8 ounce oven-proof ramekins with coconut oil. Position the oven rack to the middle. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Scrape off about ½ cup of the cream from the top of the chilled coconut milk can, place in a bowl and refrigerate until time to serve the pudding cakes.

Measure out 1 cup of the remaining coconut milk and pour into a mixing bowl. Whisk in the eggs, coconut sugar, vanilla, and salt. Sprinkle the rice flour over the mixture and whisk well. Divide the mixture between the prepared ramekins. Place in a baking sheet large enough to hold them with some extra room and pour enough very hot water into the baking dish to come up half way up the sides of the ramekins. Carefully place in the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes or until the pudding cakes are set.

While the cakes are baking, toast the coconut flakes by placing them in a dry skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until fragrant and browned, about 5 minutes.

Serve the pudding cakes warm, topped with a dollop of coconut cream, toasted coconut flakes and fruit if desired.
