  9. 5. Beat all the ingredients well now until you end up with a very smooth but rather thick batter. Make sure there are no butter lumps left. Lightly grease a springform tin with butter or vegetable oil and sprinkle with the rest of the almond flour or meal. Pour the almond batter in it and sprinkle with the shaved almond flakes and the rest of the grated coconut you kept aside.
