Coconut Sweet Bread - Trinidad

Coconut Sweet Bread - Trinidad created by Italo B.

Great with a cup of black coffee. This is my friend's grandmother's recipe. Mixed peel is the candied peel of various fruit. Use candied orange peel or candied papaya peel or a combination of the two.

    I made a half recipe and went the muffin route. 18 minutes and then did the glaze. Reduced sugar by 30% used dried cranberries and the coconut. Great flavor. Added slivered almonds. About 1/3 cup in the half recipe.

    I made a half batch and placed it in a muffin tin for 30 minutes at the same temperature. It came out great! My idea of the perfect sweetbread flavors. Great recipe!
