Jamie’s coconut bread for Sunday tea: after reading the Sunday papers I saw this delicious recipe for coconut bread and decided on a very dull Sunday afternoon that we needed a touch of the Caribbean

and a good starting point was this coconut bread. So I got my Caribbean music going and started the bread making process.  Plus, it is delicious served with tropical fruits and cheese.

This recipe makes 2 loaves


  • 7g dried yeast
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 800g strong white flour
  • 1 banana mashed
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 400ml coconut milk
  • 200g desiccated coconut
  • pinch of salt
  • butter to grease the tins


  1. Stir the yeast and honey into 200ml tepid water and leave it to froth up. ( Remeber to get the yeast you mix into water)
  2. Using a standarded mixture and dough hook, in the bowl combine the flour, banana,egg coconut milk, coconut, and salt.
  3. Add the yeast mixture and let the mixer run for a good 15 minutes, everything should be fully combined.
  4. Cover the bowl with clingfilm and leave in a warm place for an hour, until it is doubled in size.
  5. Turn your dough out onto a flour surface and knead for a few minutes.
  6. Divide the dough into two equal pieces, and pop each piece into a greased loaf tin. Cover with clingfilm and leave for another hour.
  7. Preheat the oven to 200ºC, 330ºF or gas 3.
  8. Remove the clingfilm and pop the tins in the oven for 35 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove the loaf from  tin and tap the bottom to see if it sounds hollow, if not pop back in for a few more minutes.
  9. Allow to cool before serving.
