Coconut bread

  • Courses


Ready in 55 minutes, makes 1 loaf.

This recipe is super easy. Once cooked, place a generous slice of warm loaf in your dessert bowl and top with berries or poached fruit with a little whipped cream on the side. Or, slice and smear with softened butter.

There is no egg, butter or oil in this loaf – the coconut milk does all the work!

  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 cup coconut (we used long thread)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup coconut milk

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C fan bake.

2. Mix briefly until dry ingredients are moistened.

3. Put in a greased 22cm loaf tin lined with a strip of baking paper for easy removal.

4. Cook for approximately 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

    What a super, easy recipe. Loved it. I added a sprinkling of icing sugar once cooled and served it with vanilla ice cream. The kids will love it in their lunch boxes. Yum!
