Prep time:

Total time: 
Serves: 8-10
  • 2 eggs
  • 300ml coconut milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2½ cups plain flour
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • 2 tsps cinnamon
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 150g shredded and toasted coconut
  • 100g butter melted
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 21 x 10 cm loaf tin with butter.
  2. Spread coconut out on a lined baking tray in an even layer. Toast in oven for 3-4 minutes until golden brown (watch like a hawk as it can burn easily!) Allow coconut to cool.
  3. Lightly whisk eggs, coconut milk and vanilla together.
  4. In a mixing bowl, sift flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a bowl. Add sugar and toasted coconut and stir to combine.
  5. Make a well in the centre and gradually stir in the egg mixture until just combined.
  6. Add melted butter and stir until the mixture is just smooth, being careful not to over-mix.
  7. Pour into your greased loaf tin and bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour, or until a skewer comes out clean.
  8. Leave in tin to cool for 5 minutes, and remove to cool further on a wire rack.
  9. Slice with a serrated knife and serve in thick slices with butter.
