THE RECIPE

Gluten Free Coconut Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf

Classic loaf cake with a tropical twist

Lemon and poppy seeds seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly; it’s a classic combination. Davida does us one better and adds multiple variations of coconut into the mix (coconut sugar, coconut milk, coconut oil, flaked coconut), allowing the coconut flavor to shine through without being overpowering. Gluten-free baking can be intimidating, but this recipe is simple; just mix together the wet and dry ingredients as you would with any other baked good and pour into a loaf pan.  Unlike some gluten-free baked goods that can be dry and crumbly, this loaf is kept moist and dense thanks to the coconut and lemon. A slice of this tropical-tasting loaf makes for an ideal breakfast or afternoon treat, perfect with a cup of your favorite tea or coffee.
