I loved the quick and easy way to make poppy seed bread. I make them for my neighbors at Christmas and this makes it so easy. Unfortunately, I couldn't get the coconut cream pudding mix so I just used the cake mix. It was still good. Thanks so much!!

This is a terrific recipe! I had to use vanilla pudding because I couldn't find coconut, so I added a little almond extract to make it more exciting. I gave out these loaves for Mother's Day presents. My mom wants the recipe! The texture is quite nice- slighlty sturdier than cake, but still so moist and tender. The slices look beautiful and don't fall apart. Thanks for sharing!

This recipe turned out great and makes a good amount of slices. I was dissapointed that I could barely detect the coconut flavor. I think it would have come thru better if I had maybe added 1/2 -3/4 cups of shredded coconut as well. Otherwise, the texture was really nice and everyone enjoyed it.
