I love to try out new cakes and breads provided I have a perfect
eggless recipe.Working on a egg recipe to make it eggless truly is a challenge
for me.I guess that is why I joined this Eggless Baking Group which is
Gayatri’s baby.When the
challenge for this month was announced, I kept racking my brain, as to what egg
substitute should be used in this recipe.I decided to order egg replacer,the
safest !!,even though I have never worked with it. unfortunately it was out of
stock..so what could be my second option? I was dicy about condensed
milk...would have to change some proportions...so I worked with flax seed
powder.We dont get ready cream cheese, so decided to make it myself. Well here
is my trial with this bread.
¾ cup ..........dry coconut
I used the whole dry one and chopped it into slices
100 gms...... cream cheese
4tbsp ...........sugar pwd
Combine cream cheese , sugar and coconut flakes, mix well.
½ cup ..........soft butter
½ cup ..........milk
3tbsp.......... lemon juice
1tbsp.......... lemon zest
1 ¾ cups... flour
1tsp............ baking pwd
¼ tsp.......... salt
2tbsp......... flax seed pwd dissolved in 6tbsp water
(This is the egg substitute, replace 1egg with 1tbsp flax seed pwd
dissolved in 3 tbsp water)
Mix butter , sugar and flax seed mixture.
Add milk, lemon juice and lemon zest.
Stir in the seived flour along with baking pwd and salt.
Once again beat.
Spoon half of the batter into a loaf tin.
Spread the filling.
Spoon remaining batter over the filling.
Bake for 50-55 minutes at 180deg.
Remove when golden.
not demould till completely cool.
Serve with coconut slices,lemon zest and sugar glaze.
Glaze / Garnish
½ cup ......sugar
Few dorps water / milk
Mix butter , sugar
and a few drops of water.
Place on fire , let the sugar dissolve and let it reach to
the glazing consistency.
The bread turned out amazing, I have always loved citrus
flavors, and this lemon flvor was a real hit.The only thing I was not happy
about was my mould, I filled it up, a little too much and the silicone mould
lost its shape.I had to trim the sides a bit.The edges were a little extra
golden, but that did not hamper the taste.The filling tasted absolutely
yum!!..To tell the truth , we all relished this bread, yes only the coconut
haters...they wanted it without the coconut!!..but I am enjoying the bread, I
love munching on it every now and then..is’nt it okay to indulge into such
treats once a month?..agree??..Go ahead and make this treat!!
