What are the best flavorings?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am looking to get almond and coconut flavors. I was looking to buy Lorann's emulsions, but i read a review of the coconut that wasn't very good. I want the most natural, real flavor as i can possibly get. Any suggestions? Thanks icon_smile.gif

I am not sure what your trying to make, but have you tried actual coconut and coconut milk?

the coconut would be for a buttercream....so i could try coconut milk....hmmmmmm...good idea! i'll give that a try. i would like to make a chocolate almond flavor cake, so i need an almond flavor for the cake.

I use almond butter in my almonds cakes. For flavorings I prefer Silver Cloud. Very strong, you only need a tiny bit.

Olive NAtion brand extracts are natural and taste incredible.

When I can't use the flavor right from the source, ie coconut milk for coconut, I like the silver cloud extracts and those from Olive Nation.

katateka brought up a good point about the source. If you cannot use a product because it will add too much liquid, reduce it. It is so easy to take even a cup of product to under 1/4 cup for concentrated flavor. Just try it and see how it works.

ok, so here is a spin off question then. if i want a chocolate almond cake, would the texture be too weird if i were to finely chop almonds into the batter and would that give it enough flavor?? I'm going for an almond joy kind of thing. thank you sending me to silver cloud and olive nation, they both look like good products.

It depends on your palate. Mine has been assessed at somewhat stunted, so I err toward more flavor. In your instance I'd add the finely chopped almonds and some pure almond extract or almond liquer. But that's me.
