Prince of sin, I took 5 to 6 tablespoons of solid coconut oil and melted it. So it was more then 5-6 tablespoons when melted. I prefer taking coconut oil solid on top of my coconut bread. However I had too much coconut bread that day already. Since I can not get solid coconut oil down by it self I melted it. I might try it again but only in solid form on top of bread or something else solid. I think the fact that it was so much oil in liquid form that caused me to have a issue.
