Can I substitute virgin coconut oil for butter in flourless chocolate cake?

Hi All,

I need to make a gluten free, dairy free and nut free dessert for a dinner I'm hosting. I found a flourless chocolate cake recipe that calls for butter. Can I use virgin coconut oil instead? I'm aware it will give a coconut flavor but I'm wondering if that would even be a problem since coconut goes well with chocolate anyway.

Thanks!
