This sugary sweet citrusy treat is just calling out to be enjoyed with a cup of tea mid-morning.

Loaf – Ingredients:

1 cup self raising flour

½ cup coconut

125g butter

1 cup caster sugar

2 eggs

½ cup milk

Grated rind of 4 large lemons



  • Cream butter and sugar
  • Add eggs one at a time and beat mixture
  • Sift flour and add to mixture alternatively with milk, beating after each addition
  • Add coconut and lemon rind and mix
  • Put in a loaf tin lined with baking paper
  • Bake at 180 degrees for approximately 45 minutes.

Lemon Sugar Syrup:

  • Juice all of the lemons and combine lemon juice and caster sugar in a small jug, adding as much caster sugar as is necessary to make a syrupy consistency. Ultimately there should be 1½ cups of syrup, but a bit less is fine
  • Pour this syrup over the loaf when it is cooked and still hot.

Note: Before enjoying the loaf, leave it to cool in the tin so that all the syrup can be absorbed.
