TOP TIP

Make sure the eggs have been kept at room temperature before using them in this recipe and are not straight out of the fridge.

A good tip is to take them out of the fridge one hour before you want to use them.

Using room temperature eggs will make the batter so much easier to mix together. If you use eggs that have just come out of the fridge then you run the risk of the coconut oil firming up and solidifying and you may end up with chunks of coconut oil in your muffins.

Plus it will help the loaf cook more evenly

TIPS & FAQS

What is the best loaf pan to use?

I recommend using a silicon loaf pan. You will save yourself a bit of time by not having to grease the pan and then line it with baking paper. They are ideal if you are in a bit of a rush and you want to skip a few steps. I use the Wiltshire which you can buy from your major supermarkets.

Why does my loaf take longer to bake than 60 minutes?

It should take 60 minutes to bake however always check with a skewer to make sure the bread has cooked through. Not all ovens are created equally!!
