English Coconut Tea Loaf

This is from the Hutchinson House B&B in Faribault, MN. The owner received the recipes from a British friend in the 1960's. This quick bread is awesome, and best just toasted without any jam or jelly. I like to also sprinkle some chopped pecans and some additional coconut and sugar on top before baking. Note there is no oil or butter in this recipe, it comes from the coconut, and it is a moist loaf.

Followed the ingredients exactly and it came out perfect the first time! Very delicious, was a huge hit with my coconut loving boyfriend :-) The only thing I had to modify was baking time, mine was done after 50 minutes, but that could very well be my oven...
