Recipe: Coconut Loaf

Wednesday, 18 September 2013

Today I'm sharing a really old family recipe. I have no idea where this came from, just that everyone on my mum's side of the family seems to know about it. It's absolutely delicious and very easy! To me this is a very homey recipe and I just find it so comforting. It will also make your house smell AMAZING. This recipe is enough for 1 loaf but I'd recommend doubling it as you can store it in tinfoil and it keeps quite well.

2 cups self raising flour
2 cups sugar
2 cups dessicated coconut
2 eggs
4 tablespoons of milk

1) Pre heat oven to gas mark 4.
2) Combine all dry ingredients.
3) Add eggs and stir.
4) Add the milk bit by bit, you might more than 4 tablespoons.
5) Cook for 1 hour.
6) Remove from the oven and leave to cool for a bit.
7) Cut into slices roughly half an inch thick.
8) Best served warm with lots of butter.

Please let me know if you make this! Sorry for the bad photo quality. I'm so much more of a night baker. If this is the first post you're reading on my blog believe me, the photos are normally better.
