Recipes: Coconut Bread

Found another recipe to share with everyone using one of my favourite ingredient in the kitchen – coconut!


  • 2 eggs
  • 300ml skim milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 375 g plain flour
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 220 g caster sugar
  • 150 g shredded coconut
  • 75 g unsalted butter, melted



  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 21 x 10cm loaf pan.

  2. Lightly whisk the eggs, milk and vanilla in a bowl. Sift flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a separate, large bowl. Add sugar and coconut and stir until just combined. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and gradually stir in the egg mixture until just combined.
  3. Add melted butter and stir until mixture is just smooth (do not over-mix). Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 5 minutes to cool, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve in thick slices.


If you require gluten free bread, please swap plain flour with rice flour or gluten free flour to avoid unhappy stomach ache.
