When I first read the recipe, I thought it called for a can of coconut milk but reading thru it I realized it was shredded coconut. Either way, this was really delicious (a little dry but most corn breads are). I used a lot less coconut (unsweetened) because 12 oz seemed like too much. Might've only used 2/3 of that amount, including what I sprinkled on top. Probably could've gotten away with only 1/2 the amount. Also baked it in a cast iron skillet. Very enjoyable!
