Coconut & Honey Loaf

IMG_0600

 

I confess to having an addiction to anything with coconut in it. The smell of dried coconut is mesmerising and I often keep it in a jar, only to open the lid sometimes just to have a whiff of its gorgeous scent. I also love the naturally creamy texture of it when eaten fresh or as a milk, so I can’t help but become terribly excited when I get an opportunity to bake something with it.

Putting my obsession with coconut aside, this loaf is delicious served warm with some butter and honey.
