  1. I’d love to be able to share this on Pinterest, is there a way you can add a Pinterest button as an option to share? Thanks!

  2. I’m not sure what I am doing wrong. I made this today and it did not rise, and it certainly isn’t as “fluffy” as your picture looks! 🙂 When you say to fold the egg white mixture into the batter, is it supposed to blend completely together? I had this really thick batter, almost like dough. Thoughts?

    • Hi Erin,
      When you fold in the egg whites, you have to be careful not to over mix since you want the foam made with egg whites to stay that way. I’m not a expert, but I believe that will make the cake nice and fluffy.
      I am so sorry the recipe didn’t work out for you. The batter shouldn’t be like a dough. i wonder what might’ve happened. please carefully check the ingredient amounts again. I will do the same since sometimes there could be typos…

    • I would increase the ratio by serving it with whipped cream (sweetened with stevia) since it tastes really good with whipped cream. =)
      you could try increasing the coconut oil.
