Coconut-Poppy Seed Bread (Eggless)

Hello friends, here is a different, easy and tasty bread recipe for you all. I took the basic idea of this recipe from a cook book, but not followed the step to step procedure as in the book. I did some changes in the ingredients. I skipped adding Soy Milk ( was in the original recipe), I somehow don't like the flavor. You can substitute the regular Milk with Soy Milk and some other flavors if you like. Give it a try. Have fun.

Preparation time:2 hr 20 min.
Servings: 1 Loaf


  • 1 1/2 cup All purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Coconut
  • 2 tbsp Poppy seeds / Gasagase
  • 2 tbsp Butter(melted)
  • 1 1/2 cup Milk
  • Crushed Cardamom 
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking Soda
  • Pinch of salt

  • Soak the Poppy seeds for 1 hr.
  • Then grind the soaked Poppy seeds with Coconut and about 3/4 cup Milk into smooth paste.
  • Take Sugar and Butter in a bowl and mix well. Then add All purpose flour, Baking powder, baking soda, ground mixture, crushed Cardamom and salt to taste, mix very well.
  • Now add the remaining Milk and mix well.
  • Now grease the loaf pan with little Oil or Butter, pour the mixture.
  • In the mean while pre- heat the oven at 350 degree F for 15 min.
  • Now place the loaf pan in center of the oven and bake for 55-60 min.
  • After 55-60 min, insert a knife or fork through to check if the bread is evenly baked. If the dough sticks to the knife, bake again for 3-4 min.
  • Allow to cool for 10 min.
  • Serve with a cup of hot Tea or Coffee.
