This is hands down the easiest and yummiest loaf you will ever make. EVER! If you have an easier loaf recipe, please share!
Sticky Pear and Coconut Loaf
1 ripe pear, peeled and sliced into chunks
1c desiccated coconut, plus extra for sprinkling
1c white sugar (I tend to take a little bit out when baking for my toddler)
1c self raising flour, sifted
1 1/2c milk
Preheat oven to 170C.
Grease and line a loaf pan with baking paper.
Mix coconut, sugar and flour in a large bowl.
Pour in the milk and stir until well combined.
Gently fold the pear into the mixture and transfer into prepared pan.
Sprinkle with extra coconut.
Give the pan a couple of taps on kitchen bench and bake for 45-50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
Stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
This loaf is beautiful served as is with a cup of tea, or with a spread of butter for extra naughtiness.
