Is it a bread? or is it a cake?

I have a question. Have anyone try Bill's famous coconut quick bread recipe somewhere?
Here is my version of Bill’s Famous Coconut “Quick Bread” (It is confusing, isn't it?)
Ingredients (for 1 loaf of 23x7cm)
200g all-purpose flour
75g grounded flaxseed (if you don’t have this in hands, just omit it and replace by the same amount of flour, so in total of 275g flour)
150g dried coconut flakes
1 cup = 201g white granulated white sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. cinnamon powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
75g melted butter
Step 1: preheat your oven to 180 degree Celsius. Line a 23x7x7cm baking tray with parchment paper.
Step 2: Now weight all the dry ingredients listed above into a big mixing bowl. Mix well.
Step 3: Now weight all the wet ingredients in another bowl. Mix well, too.
Step 4: Now slowly pour the wet mix into the dry mix bowl while constantly whisking using a hand whisk.
Continue whisking just until all ingredients combined and lump-free. Stop your whisking right away when you reach this stage. No more or your loaf will be dense. :(
Step 5: Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Even it out by gently “slamming” the pan against the kitchen counter a couple of times.
Step 6: Put the loaf on the lowest rack, in my case because my upper heat is stronger than my lower heat and this quick bread does take long to bake.
Step 7: Bake the loaf for approximately 50 minutes or more until the skew sticks inside the loaf coming out clear.
After 30 minutes, your kitchen will start to smell heavenly amazing. The combination of coconut, cinnamon and vanilla is irresistible.
If your loaf browned on the top too much while the inside is still not done, simply take the loaf out, cover the top with aluminum foil, and continue your baking until the skew test is achieved.
Step 8: When your loaf is done, let it sit on the counter for 20 minutes.
20 minutes are up. Now flip your loaf out of the pan. Slice and serve.
I am a bit confused? Is it a bread or is it a cake? :( Could some one define it for me please?)

I've heard British folks refer to northern American muffins (such as bran, blueberry, etc.) as "cupcakes" -- although in North America those muffins are too coarse to be considered cupcakes, but are instead another type of quick bread.
Confusing, isn't it?

I'd actually suggest that it's a quick bread, since it's meant to be served while still warm from the oven. Most coffee cakes take a glaze or wash of some sort, and are therefore served cool (because oven heat interferes with glaze setting, obviously.)
