Wonderful bread, Dorothy! I'm not a big fan of coconut and was rather apprehensive about how it would taste in this recipe, but I really wanted to try this because of the easily available ingredients, and also because it is eggless! I used freshly grated coconut and it DID add a fantastic flavour to the bread. I baked for 45 minutes, and after all the aromas wafting through my house, it was hard waiting until the next day to taste it! This tastes great toasted warm, along with a cup of coffee!
