Coconut Loaf

I've been meaning to post this recipe from the Whangaparoa Primary School Family Recipes cookbook (circa 1991) for a long while now, and seeing as I plan to be far too busy and important* to write anything in the blog today, this seems like a good time!

Coconut Loaf

Sift together:
  • heaped cup flour
  • 1t baking powder
  • ½t salt

  • ¾c sugar
  • 1c coconut

Mix together with ¾-1c milk and bake in small (mine's 4c capacity) loaf tin for 40-50mins at 180°.

Yes it is that simple and it tastes fabulous.  Because there is no butter, and there's less sugar than most other baking goodies, you can feel a bit better about wolfing this down; but because it's nice and heavy and flavourful, you may not need to have more than one slice.

*My idea of being far too busy and important means vacuuming, dishes, washing, dusting, organising, and folding towels.  And if I have time, I may be able to fit a little bit of podcast listening and project working-on.  That's project-not-for-blog-yet, for those of you playing along at home.
