Coconut Loaf

Coconut Loaf

This recipe is from the "Self Help Wartime Cooking Suggestion"s booklet.
I cooked this last week and thought it was quite nice and mildly flavoured.  
Not very sweet but was very nice with some jam and then was very nice toasted and spread with butter or margarine.
Then I made another last night and added a tablespoonful of coconut sprinkled over the top before baking it and that really added a nice toasted coconut flavour to the loaf.
It has also passed the kids taste test.  They love it.

Coconut Loaf

2 cups flour
3 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 dessertspoon  golden syrup
6 Tablespoons dessicated cocnut
Milk to mix.

Sift flour, salt and baking powder.
Add sugar and coconut.
Mix the syrup and milk.  (I found 1 cup half milk/ half water worked fine)
Stir into the dry ingredients to form a moist dough.
Bake in a greased loaf tin at 180 degrees C for 30 minutes.

Instead of using plain flour and the baking powder, I used self-raising flour instead.

Yummy, yummy, yummy!!!!!!
