Recipe by Montana Heart Song
I used ingredients from a contest..but missed the deadline to post, no electricity for awhile and today no water, Such is life! Easy Preparation and delicious! This was for a potluck entry. Rich buttery taste on the outside, soft coconut taste inside. I have one large pan with 8 mini loaf slots. You can also use a 9 X 13 pan and make one large cake. Bake about 10 minutes longer. The puffs are piled high on a plate and a bowl of whipped topping is served with the puffs. Note: Let loaves set a while and use a serrated knife. or,, you can wrap and freeze when cool and take out to thaw before giving as gifts or before serving.
