Coconut Bread

How are you, my dear friends?

I’ve been busy the past few days and I have not spent enough time with my blog. Somehow, I’ve managed to see the WordPress reader and leave comments and like some of your posts – thankfully. I promise to visit your awesome blogs when I have more time (one whole day, please!). I am also upset that I have not read even a single page of the book I started reading yesterday (booklover problems).

All I can do for today is to write something for my post.


I can’t believe that half a bag of shredded coconut stayed in the fridge for more than a month and I had a difficulty choosing from several yummy recipes. I have not made up my mind for days and when I decided to choose one, I did not regret it.

Coconut Bread


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ¼ cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter and flour 9×5-inch loaf pan and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, soft together flour, salt, cinnamon and baking powder. Add in sugar and coconut, and mix until well combined.
  3. In a jug or bowl, combine eggs, milk, vanilla and melted butter. Set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. Add sugar and coconut, and stir to mix. Make a well in the center and add in the wet ingredients. Mix until everything is incorporated, making sure not to overmix the batter.
  5. Pour in the prepared baking pan and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the the center comes out clean.
  6. Remove from the oven and cool the baked bread in the pan for about 30 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  7. Cool completely before cutting.

Well, for a coconut lover like me? This bread is absolutely yummy – great for breakfast or anytime of the day. I was so excited to cut, eat a slice and did not wait for the bread to cool completely that I almost hurt my tongue! I’ll try to be careful next time… or better be patient. 😛

      Hmm, the coconut bread was delicious. It was so good with coffee. Glad you had dropped by today – thank you! Have a safe and great day. 😉 xx

  2. You are in good company! I’ve been known to go directly for cookies with a fork because they’re too hot for me to pick up with my hands… I have a feeling that if I had this bread right out of the oven I’d probably burn my mouth too!

    1. I must try that fork thing with cookies. 😀 I always hold cookies with my hands as soon as I take them out from the oven and you know what happens – I burnt my fingers. Haha! I am glad so many can relate with me. 😉 Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day. xx

    1. Wow! Thank you so much! 😀 xx I am thinking of making vegetables in coconut milk later – can’t get enough of anything coconut. 😉 Thank you for dropping by. Hope you’re having a fabulous day! xx
