Some great points:
- No mixer required
- No fancy ingredients - all staple cupboard stuff
- Smells amazing when it's cooking
But a word of warning, don't bake this the morning you're going to eat it. Bake it the night before (luckily I did) because honestly, it smells so good when it's baking that if you're waiting an hour for it to bake and smelling those smells you might be in tears by the time it comes out!
I've put mine in the freezer sliced in tupperware with freezer plastic between each slice - just ready to chuck in the toaster. I recommend Bills' suggestion of a glob of butter to serve and/or dusting of icing sugar. Great one to take to work to and pop in the toaster - I used to make my breakkie at work all the time.
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 1/2 cups plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon powder
1 cup caster sugar
150grams desiccated or shredded coconut
75 grams butter, melted.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees c (170 if fan-forced)
Lightly whisk the eggs, milk and vanilla essence in one bowl.
In another bowl, sift flour, baking powder and cinnamon and combine. Add coconut and sugar.
Pour in melted butter and stir again until combined well, but again, don't overstir.
Pour into greased and floured loaf tin and bake on middle shelf for 1 hour.
Leave to cool slightly, then slice/toast to serve.
