Coconut Loaf

This delicious cake recipe was supplied by Michelle, from FABED, the only charity supporting families affected by Eosinophilic Disorders. You can read more about EGID here.

This recipe is MEWS free, gluten free, egg free and depending on your choice of flour, corn free, potato free too. I think it's also evidence for people like me who can bake with eggs that they are NOT required for a lovely, light texture and a large cake that rises!

  • 300 g free from flour
  • 2tsp free from baking powder
  • 1tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4tbsp flaxseed or linseed
  • 225g golden caster sugar
  • 150g desiccated coconut
  • 350ml coconut milk
  • 50 ml sunflower oil
  • 900g loaf tin
  • Pre heat oven to 180 and lightly grease the loaf tin
  • Sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon in a large bowl, add ground flaxseed, caster sugar and coconut and mix together. 
  • Pour over the coconut milk and sunflower oil stir until you have a batter.
  • Tip into tin and bake in the oven for 45-50mins until it is slightly risen and golden.
  • Leave to cool and turn on to a rack.

Serve warm or cold!

  4. I am not a coconut fan, but I do think it is amazing how you can create traditional looking food, without the 'usual' ingredients x

  5. Oooh - would this be suitable for people with coeliac disease? We have a family coming round soon, and the two little girls both have coeliac. I'd love to make this for them!

  17. I'm a recent convert to eggless cakes - they have such a good texture. Your coconut cake sounds scrumptious. I've made one using coconut oil, coconut flour and coconut sugar as well for an all over coconut cake ;-)
