I have an easy peasy one - have made it many times, especially good when the cupboard it looking bare as it doesn't need butter or eggs.

In a bowl mix together 1. 5 cups flour, 1. 5 tsp bp, 1. 5 cups coconut, 1 cup sugar, 1. 5 cups milk, 1 tsp vanilla essence. I often add a couple of tablespoons of cocoa powder for a change. Bake at 160-170 deg C for an hour or so.

I've used that recipe too Sharrs - excellent for making two or more times the recipe too, for extra loaves. . I've sometimes added sultana's or currants too.

Would be nice with some lemon juice and zest added!

This comes from " Simply the Best " by Annabelle White and Kathy Paterson "

Moira's Coconut Cinnamon Loaf

2 large eggs
1/4 c oil (not olive)
1 c sugar
250g sour cream
1 1/2c flour
1 1/2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1/4 t salt

Cinnamon Mix

1/2 c coconut
1/4 c brown sugar
2 t cinnamon

Beat eggs until frothy, beat in oil and sugar then add the sour cream and other ingredients. Place half the batter into a large greased loaf tin. Sprinkle over half the cinnamon mixture, add remaining batter then rest of cinnamon mix over top. Swirl through the batter with a knife for a marbled effect. Bake at 180C for 55-60 mins. Stand for 10 mins before turning out.

This one is lovely. I did try making it with dark chocolate chips but I think white chocolate is much better - lovely taste and doesn't ruin the golden colour.

White Chocolate and Coconut Loaf

2 Eggs
200 g Sugar
1 1/2 cups Flour
1/4 cup oil (not olive - I used rice bran)
250 g sour cream (I used light)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
50 g coconut
150 g white chocolate chips (I chopped up buttons - much cheaper)

1. Heat oven to 180 degC.
2. Prepare a large loaf tin
3. Into a large bowl sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add coconut and chocolate.
4. Beat eggs and sugar until frotht, mix in sour cream and then mix in oil.
5. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients.
6. Pour batter into loaf tin and bake for 50 minutes. Leave to stand for 15 minutes before turning out.

sharrs, Mar 26, 10:41am
Did it have a chance to cool after baking barloo? I usually get the 'when can I eat it' plea from my kids - it does smell lovely doesn't it.

barloo, Mar 26, 11:44am
I added more van ess (mmmMmmm) and it was Very wet, so added a bit more flour. I think I will try next time with less flour.

But yip, very nice! !

sharrs, Mar 30, 10:37am
Yes, it is a very wet mixture. How did you go this time barloo? Must make another one myself ... . it's been a couple of weeks lol.

barloo, Apr 7, 9:12am
yip, its meant to be wet! !

Its a fav here and have others wanting the recipe now toos! !

Its a keeper along with the no butter, no eggs sultana cake:)

I might add some soaked sultanas then try with a bit of choco buttons or drops toos! And I do add loads of van ess to give it that nice taste to go with the coconut!

squeakygirl, Apr 8, 5:47am
My easiest is 1 cup coconut, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup milk and 1 cup self raising flour. I have added spices, cocoa, sultanas - in fact you can play around with it however you like. Keeps well too, if it gets a chance! !

barloo, Apr 8, 11:41am

yip! !

IF it gets a chance to stay around longer than a day! !

barloo, Apr 21, 1:34am
Made some today and added lemon juice and the zest along with raisins in one mix then added dark choco buttons to the next one!

Looking forward to trying these ones out over the weekend!

barloo, Apr 21, 9:04am

That sounds great, will try it as soon as I get some lemons.

cap, Apr 24, 1:40am
I made this easy one yesterday and added chocolate chips. It was nice warm. I still think for a bit of a treat the recipe I posted in #8 is worth it.

juliewn, Apr 25, 12:23pm

This loaf actually gets better when it is a day old - I always try to make it a day ahead now.
And I usually put in lemon essence instead of the vanilla.

Bill grangers coconut loaf recipe is very nice. I add vanilla to mine.
