recipe adapted from http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2013/03/coconut-bread/

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups milk– i only had almond milk on hand, and it worked out just fine
  • 1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 5 ounces sweetened flaked coconut (about 1 1/2 cups packed)
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted or melted and browned, if desired
  • Vegetable oil or nonstick cooking spray for baking pan

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and vanilla.

In a medium bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. Add sugars and coconut, and stir to mix. Make a well in the center, and pour in egg mixture, then stir wet and dry ingredients together until just combined. Add butter, and stir until just smooth — be careful not to overmix.

Butter and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan, or coat it with a nonstick spray. Spread batter in pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, anywhere from 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Cool in pan five minutes, before turning out onto a cooling rack.
