Papaya Bread

Recipe by BakinBaby

This bread bursts of Island Paradise and is popular in Hawaii and the Pacific Islands. Flavored with papaya, macadamia nuts and coconut, this is a perfect breakfast bread or after dinner dessert. I am posting for ZWT, Pacific Islands.

Made your recipe as given & had a wonderfully flavorful treat! Loved the combo of coconut, papaya & applesauce (I used some sauce that I'd made)! Also liked the carrots in this, but then I'm a big fan of carrot cake, so . . . Definitely a winner of a recipe! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block recipe tag]
