Simple Coconut Bread Recipe

Simple Coconut Bread: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and place the oven rack in the center of the oven. Butter, or spray with a non stick vegetable spray, an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 3 inch (21.5 x 11.5 x 7.5 cm) loaf pan. Then line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.

In a large bowl, stir or whisk together the eggs, melted butter, milk, and vanilla extract. Whisk in the sugar until incorporated.

In another bowl, stir or whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, ground cinnamon, and dried coconut. Add the wet ingredients to the dry flour mixture. Stir until just combined. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with the back of a spoon or offset spatula. If desired, sprinkle the top of the batter with unsweetened dried coconut chips.

Bake in preheated oven for about 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool for about 15 minutes before removing from pan. This bread can be covered and stored at room temperature for several days or it can be frozen.

Makes one loaf.
