Macadamia Mini Loaves



  • 1 (3 1/2 ounce) jar macadamia nuts
  • 1/3 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 large lemon
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs


  1. Finely chop enough macadamia nuts to measure 1/3 cup; set aside.
  2. Coarsely chop remaining nuts. Place in small bowl and stir in coconut and 1 tablespoon of sugar.
  3. Grate 2 teaspoons lemon peel and squeeze 3 tablespoons juice.
  4. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour four 5 3/4 x 3 1/4-inch loaf pans.
  5. In a large bowl, with mixer at high speed, beat butter and remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Add flour, milk, vanilla extract, baking powder and eggs, lemon peel and juice. Mix at low speed until just mixed, constantly scraping the bowl. Stir in the finely chopped macadamia nuts. Spoon batter into prepared pans.
  6. Bake loaves for 60 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. If topping begins to brown too quickly, loosely cover pans with foil.
  7. Cool cakes in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes; remove from pans; cool completely on racks.

Yield: 4 loaves, 4 servings each
