Coconut Loaf – Simple, Delicious & Healthy :)

We all have some favorite ingredients which we try to use quite often in our cooking. One of my favorite ingredients is coconut. I love coconut. And I try to use it in many of the desserts I make. I must have made a handful of cakes which have coconut in it. But this time, I wanted to bake something which is fairly healthy (so no guilt factor while hogging :D) and made with minimum ingredients. I came across this recipe and I knew that it would taste great and I was right!

Coconut Loaf

Ingredients:

  • Desiccated Coconut – 3 cups
  • Eggs – 4 (large) or 6 (small to medium)
  • Vanilla Extract – 3 teaspoons
  • Orange/pineapple Extract – 2 teaspoons
  • Natural Honey – 4 tablespoons (more to make it sweet)
  • Mixed dried fruits – 1/2 cup (optional)
  • Bicarbonate of Soda – 2 teaspoons

Steps:

  1. Preheat the oven to 140 degrees C. Line a loaf tin with a baking paper and keep aside.
  2. Mix coconut, eggs, vanilla extract, orange/pineapple extract, honey and soda in a food processor or using a hand mixer. Mix well until well combined.
  3. Add the dried fruits into the batter and fold in gently.
  4. Pour the batter into the lined tin and bake for 40 minutes or until a knife or a skewer inserted through the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  5. Remove from the oven and let it cool in the tin for 10 minutes then turn onto a wire rack and allow it to cool completely before cutting it.
