wow adding coconut is something new – I do love the lemon strawberry combination so this will be on my to-do list now ;p
Hi,Can i replace Self-raising flour with normal plain flour,is it the same and do i need to add something else (eg baking powder), please advise.Thanks Wendy
Wendy, I just google on the website stating that you can use 1sp of baking powder to every cup of plain flour.
Ann, you know I have been wanting to bake this recipe since you posted it up. And hoping I can give you a comment after that…but I didn't get the chance to bake it! Argh! Ok gonna promise myself to bake it before Friday…thanks for sharing this! 🙂
I would love have a slice or two with my morning coffee..looks so moist and delicious! You are pro in this department and in my book! Thank you for sharing love and have a wonderful day!
O that sounds like a perfect combination indeed. love strawberries and even though I've never successfully baked with them due to their 'wet' nature, I'm def gonna try this gorgeous cake!
hi ann, after making the strawberry cake for my last bake event, i realised how good it was in bakes. Let me keep this recipe first, see i might use other berries in time to come. Thank you!
Beautifully baked again, the loaf is moist enough, isn't it! I should have an excuse to eat more due to the reduced sugar amount : ).
The cake looks moist and yummy! Lemon pairs well with any fruits! Would love to have a slice with a cup of tea!
I can't wait to try this recipe with ur raving, Ann. Like ur new wooden board background (t's new in ur blog right?)
Angel, My Green Tea Tiramisu was based on the book of Okashi. This link is here https://www.anncoojournal.com/2011/02/green-tea-tiramisu.html
Btw, when I wanted to make this cake just realized the lemon in my fridge had rotted. Sigh got to wait for another time when I get ready all the ingredients .
When did u make green tea tiramisu ??! Why I miss it?
yummy…saw this in your FB…makes me drool
Hi Ann….i m so inspired by ur baking..btw, if without the dessicated coconut..do u think the taste will be much of different ?your loyal fans fom today onwards..KYM
Yes, blueberry is just as nice. I baked one for my son's teacher – too lazy to dice the strawberries, so I bought a punnet of blueberries, and my son said the teacher and the class enjoyed it very much.amanda
HI KYM, Thank you for stopping by. You can omit the dessicated coconut as only small amount is used. Perhaps you can also consider to use blueberry to replace strawberry.
Can never get enough of strawberries. Yum! Hey Ann, finally got my Drop-down Menu working. I'm half-dead liao; so tedious. Lol! Do chk out my post on Limpets, The Poor Man’s Abalone & at the same time, take a look at my newly revamped Cooking Page & let me know if u like the new change. All to your credit, dear!
Shirley, You most welcome:) I saw it! Nice and need job.
Thats a very lovely cake with the bursts of strawberries !
Dear Ann, Can I omit the dessicated coconut or replace it with other ingredients? Will it make a huge different in the loaf without the coconut?
Oh I can imagine the great combination flavor of this recipe. You have also present the cake beautifully. 🙂
Li Shuan, I always love your compliment… hahaa… sounds so thick skin! :DD
This looks easy to make, but as I'm not a coconut fan, think I'll need to come up with a substitute for it. Nice clicks!
Cheah, I think you can omit the desiccated coconut as only 30g is used.
Perfect cake for tea time :-). My "To Bake" list is getting longer.
Hi AnnThanks, and don't mention it. It was a pleasure to have shared with you the recipe. Amanda
Hi Amanda,Thank you very much for sharing this lovely recipe. Everyone at home enjoyed this cake very much. In fact I made the 2nd one yesterday for a friend.

Hi Carole, Thank you very much!
My mum would love this! Saw some nice strawberry at fairprice, should grab some and make this for her 🙂 Thanks for sharing Ann 🙂

Wow! Ann another tempting bake! You are just so talented! I must try this but i only have a smaller loaf pan – 21 cm x 11cm (measurement taken from the inner rim of pan – is this the right way to measure i wonder?) do i have to reduce the ingredients pls?
Hi Zoe, Is alright to you use your smaller loaf pan (21 x 11cm) to bake this full recipe.
Yummy clicks! 😉
That is a lovely loaf and delightful recipe 🙂
I lived for a couple of years in New Zealand and loved that magazine.This lemon and strawberry loaf looks so good. Anything with yoghurt in it is healthy and you're allowed 2 pieces, right?
This really is a beautiful loaf cake. I totally agree with you that I love the lemon and berry combo! Gotta give this recipe a try.
Oh Ann, I love this type of cake very much. Lemon+Strawberry, I like the combo! Yes yes yes, this is going to my cook list now. How long is your cook list, Ann? I lost nearly all of the recipes that I want to try when my computer was broken but in such a short period, the list is built up again!
Beautiful! My mouth is watering just looking at this loaf:)
Oooh…this looks pretty and tempting! I love that coconut is added. I'm sure it gives a lovely flavour. This makes me want to bake again 😀
This looks sooooo good. Two of my fave flavors.
Thank you for sharing your reader's recipe. I love the flavor and have baked it twice. Both times the cakes turned out very crumbly. The oven temp,baking tin,mixing time,baking time all checked. What could have gone wrong? Gracie Young
Your cakes look amazing!!
Like your presentation and I am sure the cake taste excellent 🙂
Yummy…this looks soooooooo good..;)Tasty Appetite
I can imagine how flavorful this loaf is! Certainly will like to bake this too. Thanks for sharing another great bake!
Fantastic loaf. Will definitely try it out! I will just add strawberries to this lovely lemon cake I made recentrly: http://vkusnoteka.blogspot.com/2012/04/blog-post.html Of course I will omit the chocolate chips 🙂
Hi Annie, I saw your lemon cake post. Looks pretty and remember to add strawberry when you want to bake it again.
