Brilliant. Apparently it’s tastiest toasted with butter and honey, but ours never made it that far. Thanks again to Smitten Kitchen!
2 eggs AND 1 t. vanilla
1 1/4 c. milk
2 1/2 c. flour
2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. sweetened flaked coconut
6 T. butter, melted (or melted and browned)
Preheat the oven to 350, butter your largest 9 x 5 loaf pan, and in a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla and milk and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon, then mix in the sugar and coconut. Make a well in the center and pour in the egg and milk mixture and using a sturdy spatula, mix until just combined. Add in the butter and stir just until the batter is smooth – do not over mix! then scrape it all into your prepared pan and bake for about an hour. Allow the loaf to cool in the pan for a few minutes before turning out onto a rack to cool. Try to eat just one piece! – enjoy!
