I have been making this recipe for about 4 years now and it is delicious. I recently took a loaf to my Mom, who is an excellent cook. A few days later, she called me asking for the recipe. She couldn't stop raving about how delicious it was and to me, that says a lot. Hope you enjoy it.

I have this recipe but I don't put cinnamon in it. It changes the taste. And instead of vanilla I put cherry extract in it. Excellent !

I didn't use coconut as that is not an acceptable ingredient in my household. However, I did put in the one cup of chopped pecans. The next time I would add another teaspoon of cinnamon and then it would truly be a five star recipe. This is a very moist loaf. I also used smaller loaf pans and this made four small loafs and I baked them for only 45 minutes.
