TRH Melanie's Coconut Cherry Loaf
One of the guys that hubby works with, has chickens on his farm and sent me fresh eggs to try with the message that I must send him some cake. Well the easiest I could think of was Madeira Cake. While looking in my recipes for the recipe though, I came across Viloshni Naraidu’s Coconut Cherry Loaf, which was much of a muchness. The inclusion of Almond essence and cherries is so awesome and had me eating cake way past midnight last night. Simple but sooo divine with a Hug in a Mug 
Ingredients
185g butter
250ml castor sugar
5ml almond essence
3 eggs
125ml desiccated coconut
500ml cake flour
5ml baking powder
½ cup milk
125ml chopped cherries, coated in flour, excess shaken off.
Method:
Sift the flour and baking powder and set aside.
Cream butter and castor sugar with electric beater.
Add eggs one at a time and beat well after each egg.
Add the coconut and almond essence.
Add the sifted dry ingredients alternating with the milk. Fold min the cherries.
Pour mixture into a greased 23cm loaf tin and bake at 180C for 1 hour or until golden.
