Cooking oil spray, for greasing
400ml can coconut milk
75ml vegetable oil
2½ cups self-raising flour
2 cups shredded coconut
1 cup caster sugar
Softened butter, to serve (optional)
Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 24.5 x 12cm loaf tin with cooking oil spray. Line base and sides with baking paper. Put coconut milk, eggs and oil in a large bowl and whisk until smooth. Mix flour, coconut and sugar in a separate large bowl.
Pour milk mixture into flour mixture and beat with a wooden spoon to combine. Spoon into prepared tin. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer. Set aside for 10 minutes to cool slightly, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and serve with butter, if using.
