Coconut Loaf

"Recipe came from a Quick Cooking Magazine in 2002. I just got around to trying it today! I used it instead of the usual recipe for 'shortcakes' Wow it was great with strawberries and cream! I think next time instead of the milk, I might try pineapple juice."

    I love coconut loaf and this one is so yummy. I used margarine. I used only 1/2 cup of sugar and it was great. I used unsweetened coconut. Thanks Katie :) Made for I recommend tag game

    This made for a beautiful loaf! It was also very tasty. The only part I didn't like was it was very flaky and crumbly. But it was still delicious and that was what counts.

    This is a beautiful recipe for a stunning dessert. I loved the coconut in this loaf cake! I took your advice in the intro and used it to serve with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. It was a star at the family dinner!! I made sure to spray my glass loaf pan well and for the last 15 minutes I turned the oven down to 325 to help with the browning as the loaf center continued to bake (I do this with a lot of quick breads). Perfectly moist and so delicious. I'd like to try it with your hint of pineapple juice and also serve with fresh pineapple on the side. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game!

    Lovely Recipe! I used mini loaf pans and yeilded 6 from this recipe... Baked them for 30 minutes and they turned out perfectly! Thanks so much for this delicious recipe! Additional details: I froze some of these (wrapped in plastic wrap and then in foil)... the came out just as nice as they did when originally baked!

    My family loved this loaf and I have passed the recipe on to numerous friends. One hint to prevent loaf sticking to the pan is to line it with parchment paper.
