Coconut lovers will love this sweet and moist Coconut Bread. Perfect for a brunch table or just when you need something delicious.
This ugly weather we’ve been having has driven me to bake. It’s one of my favorite things to do when it’s cold, snowy and yucky outside.
I have baked a batch of these dang cookies everyday this week, I think I might have a serious problem. If I know my freezer is out of dough balls, I kind of panic and have to whip up another batch of cookie dough. I haven’t heard any complaining though from my boys, in fact I’m pretty sure they are ok with me having an addiction to these cookies and cookie dough.
This yummy bread is another one of the many things I’ve baked. Last spring my son’s date he took to prom brought him a loaf of some aMaZinG coconut bread to thank him for the date. I hate to admit it but I’m 99% sure I ate over half the loaf myself, I couldn’t help it. I knew I needed to try and make some so I found this recipe and it’s pretty dang close to what his cute date brought him. It’s so moist on the inside and then the top turns kind of crispy and sugary from the glaze. It’s seriously scrumptious. If you are a coconut lover, you will absolutely love this bread!

Hi. Can this be baked in a 9 x 5 pan…one loaf only? Thank you for the yummy recipe!
Hi Lisa! It’t been awhile since I’ve made this, but I think you should be fine making it in just one pan. You’ll obviously have to adjust the baking time, so make sure you do that. If it looks like there is too much batter for the one pan, you can always fill a couple muffin tins with the extra batter.
