Goes fabulous with a nice freshly brewed cup of coffee.

Serves 12


  • 4 small navel oranges
  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut
  • 1½ cups flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda


1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Grease a 23cm loaf pan.

2. Fill a medium-size pot with water and place the four oranges in it. Place the pot over medium-high heat for approximately 2 hours, or until the oranges are very tender. Cut each one into 4 pieces.

3. In a high-speed blender or food processor combine all of the ingredients. Blend until smooth.

4. Pour batter into prepared pan, place on middle rack, and bake for about 55 minutes. Set aside to cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan, invert onto rack, and cool completely before slicing. Perfect for breakfast, toasted with favorite nut butter or for dessert with cashew cream.
