This is a gread quick bread..."it almost tastes like a pound cake", believe it or not…my husband and I said that at the same time after the first bite! We had it plain and also for dessert topped with Cool Whip and sliced strawberries. I didn’t know how to toast coconut, so I just put it on a baking sheet while the oven was heating and watched it until it got golden. Thanks for a unique quick bread recipe and a way to use up leftover coconut!
What a yummy bread! I love the fact that it's so easy to throw together and forgiving too. I had to use two egg whites instead of one egg and melted butter instead of oil but it worked out wonderfully. I've been munching on it for breakfast and plan on making a bunch more to freeze.
I made muffins from this recipe. I agree with the other reviewers that this would be best as a poundcake (top with fruit and whipped cream) instead. The coconut flavor is very mild. Since I love coconut flavor, I would probably add coconut extract next time.
