Gumdrop Loaf


A great tasting Gumdrop Loaf
enhanced with the flavour of coconut.


1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter softened
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 cup milk
2 cups gumdrops
(omit black)
1 cup sweetened
flaked coconut

I used large gumdrops in this recipe
that I bought at the grocery store.
Cut them up and rolled them in
flour to keep them separated.
Use some of the 2cups of flour 
measured above.
If you use extra flour, the
loaf will be too dry. 
Baking gums are also available
in certain bulk stores.


Preheat oven to 350deg.F
Grease a 9x5 loaf pan,
lined with parchment paper.

In a bowl, with a mixer,  beat sugar 
and butter until light and creamy.

Add in eggs & vanilla and beat until fluffy.

In a separate bowl, stir together the 
flour,  baking powder and salt.

Gradually add the flour mixture into 
the sugar mixture alternating with the 
milk until mixture is smooth.

Stir in the gumdrops and 
coconut until well combined.

Spoon mixture into the prepared baking pan.

Bake 350deg.F for 1 1/4 hrs. or
 until tester in centre comes out clean.
Do not overbake.

Let cool in pan for 5 minutes.

Turn out and cool on wire rack completely

Dust with icing sugar.
