Some breakfast mornings just call for a simple Loaf Cake!
As I always say, Weekends are just for chilling and doing things we enjoy. Right from morning, there is no hard core regime . So one of those lazy Saturday mornings just called for some Coconut Loaf Cake along with tall glasses of milk.
But my week is totally different than what you can imagine. Its always action packed no matter what the weather is. We love chilli weather with a bit of a sun and breeze. Yes, but these rainy cloudy days just puts you off and all you need is a blanket, couch and your favourite tele. I really do not feel like working specially on days like these . But when the sun is shinning bright, I am literally wearing my running shoes and I enjoy being all over the place. We park and stride to school – just to feel the clean air !
There is so much of freshness in the weather now, that morning strolls after school drops just rejuvenates the inner me. It is certainly not bitting cold, as we are slowly leaning towards spring. Once I am home after those long chatty walks with a friend, I do like to enjoy a cuppa with an occasional slice of cake. This mild coconut-ty loaf cake is just perfect for that moment.
Bright weather brings back the mojo to be active and work all day long !!
Time is running so quickly, we are already a few days in March! We enjoy simple tea cakes any time and this Coconut Loaf Cake is just the thing ! I had been recipe testing with OXO 2lb Loaf Tin and it had to be something other than our classic Chocolate and Madiera Cakes.
With my regular Victoria Loaf Cake as base, I played around with the recipe and made it twice until I perfected the proportions.
So how did I make it ?
Just like I would make my Victoria Loaf Cake!!
Approximately weigh the large eggs , which falls between 63-73g. So I always use 3 eggs.
Then weigh out Flour, Sugar and Butter to nearly the same weight . Then add the rest. Simple and easy.
Did I tell you I tried eggless too , but sadly the proportions went wrong somewhere. But yes the other 2 were perfect !! I do enjoy sharing the extra baked batches to friends at school and get an honest feedback:)
