coconut bread (a)

I dont really have an introduction to this. basically, mum made coconut bread on wednesday.

Ok ok so its not really my recipe because MUM made the bead, but I think it is worth a mention as it was actually really really good. Its quite a heavy loaf, and one slice will be sufficient as a good snack. It keeps well in the freezer, or in the pantry for up to a week (just toast it if it gets a bit dry haha). 

Would probably work as muffins as well...

mmm steaming hot from the oven :) :)

Coconut bread

2 eggs
300ml milk
1 tspn vanilla essence
3 cups plain four
2 tspn baking powder
2 tspn cinnamon
150g coconut shredded
110g castor sugar
75g brown sugar
80g unsalted butter melted

Preheat oven to 180 celcius and line baking tin (loaf tin) with paper.
In a small bowl, lightly whisk eggs, milk and vanilla. set aside.
In a larger bowl, sift flour, baking powder and cinnamon.
Add sugars and coconut and mix until combined.
Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and add the milk/egg mix, stirring until just combined.
Add melted butter, folding into the mix until smooth - do not over mix.
Pour into loaf pan and bake for 1 hour (or until skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean).
Serve hot from the oven with butter.

USE WHOLEMEAL FLOUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Would taste just as good AND its healthier!!!
