Sunday Supper – Strawberry Coconut Loaf

This weekend we wen’t to the Kumeu Classic Car and hotrod show, just like we do every year but now we have Taylor and our saving our pennies to buy a house I decided we would take a picnic and not need to spend money on over priced junk food. I gathered a few cans of drink, items for a cheese platter and some fresh fruit but also knew we needed something else to make it special. We had quite a few strawberries that I considered freezing but thought better of that and whipped up a delicious Strawberry Coconut Loaf and boy was it good. Heavy enough to be a good lunch box treat but sweet and refreshing that it was perfect for a hot day out.
