AWESOME!!!! This recipe is sooooooo delish! The coconut, raisins and vanilla go great together and make for a very, very enjoyable treat! The texture of this bread is light, spongy, fluffy with specks of chewy coconut and fruity raisins. Every bite is delightful!
I made half the recipe baking it in two oven-proof teracotta dishes, which worked out nicely.
Since I didnt want to throw away half an egg, I used the full egg for half the recipe compensating this by reducing the oil by 2 tbs or so. It worked out perfectly.
Syd, this bread even was approved by my mum, who normally does not like what I bake. So THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this true winner with us!

This has a great flavor. I used dried apricots, diced. Mine was a bit dry, and only baked for 45 minutes. I think the problem was the way the ingredient list is written (mixing cups and ounces and lbs, etc.). I wasn't sure how much a lb of flour was (I really need a scale) in cups, so I may have added too much. But the flavor is great and I will try it again (hopefully after I get a scale :) )
