Coconut bread

Whenever I visit Bills cafe in Sydney but am not very hungry I always order the coconut bread,has a great texture thanks to the shredded coconut and a subtle cinnamon taste.
Recipe from Sydney Food by Bill Granger,i was too lazy to type up the recipe so have copied it from the Lifestyle Food Channel website.

  • 2 Eggs
  • 300ml Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence
  • 2½ cups Plain Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 cup Caster Sugar
  • 150g Shredded Coconuts
  • 75g Unsalted Butter (Melted)
  • Icing Sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 180C (350F).
  2. Lightly whisk eggs, milk and vanilla together.
  3. Sift flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a bowl, add sugar and coconut, and stir to combine.
  4. Make a well in the centre and gradually stir in the egg mixture until just combined.
  5. Add melted butter and stir until the mixture is just smooth, being careful not to over-mix.
  6. Pour into a greased and floured 21 x 10 cm (81/2 x 4 in) loaf tin and bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour, or until bread is cooked when tested with a skewer.
  7. Leave in tin to cool for 5 minutes, and remove to cool further on a wire rack.
  8. Serve in thick slices, toasted, buttered and dusted with icing sugar. Makes 8-10 thick slices.
