  • 2 eggs
  • 50 gms – ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 200 gms – 1 cup white sugar
  • 240 gms – 1 cup sour cream
  • 190 gms – 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup flaked coconut
  • 50 gms – ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. In a small bowl, stir together coconut, brown sugar and cinnamon. Keep aside.
  2. Put the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a bowl and mix well.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs until frothy. Beat in the oil and sugar. Stir in the sour cream and mix until incorporated.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and stir until combined.
  5. Put half of the batter in the bottom of a greased 23cm x 12.5cm (9x5 inch) loaf pan. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon mixture over the batter. Top with the remaining batter and sprinkle the remaining cinnamon mixture over the top. Cut through the batter with a knife to give a swirling, marbled effect.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven at 175°C – 350°F for 1 hour or until cooked through.
  7. Let the loaf cool down for 10 minutes, then remove it from the pan and let it cool completely on a rack.
