Did you know how coconut milk is made?

According to BBC Good Food,

Creamed coconut and coconut milk are made in a way surprisingly akin to their dairy counterparts. Coconut flesh (the white part) is grated and soaked in hot water. The coconut cream rises to the top and can be skimmed off. The remaining liquid is squeezed through a cheesecloth to extract a white liquid that is coconut milk. By repeating this process, the coconut milk becomes thinner. The thicker version is used for desserts and rich sauces. Thin coconut milk is used for cooking curries and soups.

When and how to use coconut milk for baking

A tasty non-dairy alternative to milk for baking, coconut milk is a good option as long as the coconut flavor won’t interfere. You just need to replace it 1 to 1 for milk in the recipe. However, the coconut flavor as I have already mentioned may not work well with all your recipes.

You can use coconut milk in cake mix just as you would use regular milk. Nevertheless, the cake will have a coconut flavor. Better make sure that the flavor of the cake you are preparing does not clash with the coconut. If you’re making a coconut cake, use coconut milk for flavor and you will not have to use any kind of extract.
