Coconut and Lemon Loaf for Daring Baker's February 2012

Daring Baker's was hosted by Lis for February 2012.  Lis challenged us to make quick breads,which I  have to quickly whip up in the last minute as always.  Lis has provided us with different sources to refer for quick breads with different flavours and versions.


Quick breads are made with quickly without kneading,rising and yeast.  Basically quick breads are made with rising agents like baking powder,bicarbonate of soda along with moist texture.  A quick bread can be either sweet or savoury,  you can play with different flavours to make your own version of quick bread.  A quick bread can be in the form of loaves,muffins or popovers.

I have choosed Coconut and lemon loaf for this challenge.   Coconut by itself is a fantastic flavours,  I know it goes well with cardamom.  I love the flavour of lemon and vanilla in any cakes, so today I wanted to try lemon and vanilla along with fresh grated coconut.  I felt the flavour of coconut in every bite, this is a super moist and yummy bread.  Since I made it in the last minute, I couldn't come out with some appealing pictures for this yummy loaf.  If you are a coconut lover, I'm sure you'll enjoy this a lot and will become your favourite once you try it.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20-25 minutes
Makes 1 mini loaf

Ingredients:
Plain flour- 100 g
Fresh grated coconut- 75 g
Butter- 75 g ( at room temperature )
Sugar- 75 g
Egg- 1
Lemon juice- Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Vanilla essence- 1 tsp
Grated lemon zest- 1/4 tsp
Baking powder- 1 tsp
Bicarbonate of soda- 1/4 tsp
Yogurt- 1/2 tbsp

Method:
Preheat the oven to 190 degree Celsius.  Grease and line a mini loaf tin.  Sift together the flour, baking powder  and bicarbonate of soda in a large bowl.  Beat together the butter and sugar in a bowl with a electric mixer.  When it looks fluffy add the egg and beat well.  Add the egg and beat again.  Now add the flour mixture, lemon juice, grated lemon zest and vanilla.  Beat all the ingredients to combine well.  Finally add the fresh grated coconut and stir.
Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake it in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.  Take it out from the oven, leave it cool in the tin for 5 minutes.  Gently remove from the tin,slice and serve.

Note:
The bread is too soft and moist, so take care while slicing it, so that they don't break.
