Could someone define this for me please? Is it a cake? or is it a bread?

My version of Bill’s Famous Coconut “Quick Bread”

Ingredients (for 1 loaf of 23x7cm)

Dry mixture

  200g all-purpose flour
  75g grounded flaxseed (if you don?t have this in hands, just omit it and replace by the same amount of flour, so in total of 275g flour)
  150g dried coconut flakes
  1 cup = 201g white granulated white sugar
  2 tsp. baking powder
  2 tsp. cinnamon powder

Wet Mixture

  2 eggs
  300ml milk
  1 tsp. vanilla extract
  75g melted butter



Step 1: preheat your oven to 180 degree Celsius.

Line a 23x7x7cm baking tray with parchment paper.

Step 2: Now weight all the dry ingredients listed above into a big mixing bowl.

Mix well.

Step 3: Now weight all the wet ingredients in another bowl.

Mix well, too. smile

Step 4: Now slowly pour the wet mix into the dry mix bowl while constantly whisking using a hand whisk.

Continue whisking just until all ingredients combined and lump-free. Stop your whisking right away when you reach this stage. No more or your loaf will be dense. :( The finished batter does not look very pretty due to the flax seed brownness, but trust me, smell good, and taste soo good.

Step 5: Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Even it out by gently ?slamming? the pan against the kitchen counter a couple of times.

Step 6: Put the loaf on the lowest rack, in my case because my upper heat is stronger than my lower heat and this quick bread does take long to bake.

Step 7: Bake the loaf for approximately 50 minutes or more until the skew sticks inside the loaf coming out clear.

After 30 minutes, your kitchen will start to smell heavenly amazing. The combination of coconut, cinnamon and vanilla is irresistible.

If your loaf browned on the top too much while the inside is still not done, simply take the loaf out, cover the top with aluminum foil, and continue your baking until the skew test is achieved. smile

Step 8: When your loaf is done, let it sit on the counter for 20 minutes.
20 minutes are up. Now flip your loaf out of the pan.

Now slice this bad boy into whatever size you want, make yourself a cup of jasmine tea, and enjoy!

Serve warm, or serve cool, it is as good as it gets. smile One or two slices like these for breakfast and you are well prepared for a hard working day.
