Coconut bread

Actually I came through this recipe in Cynthia’s “Tasteslikehome” (I simply admire the delectable wonders she does in her kitchen) and the way she described it, I couldn’t resist trying the recipe at once, one, since my daughter is an absolute amateur of sweet breads and secondly, I had all the ingredients ready and so I was led to Chuck’s Kneadforbread (another online treasure box, full of wonderful recipes of Breads) where I found the source of this recipe. Many Thanks to both of them for sharing this recipe!!!

So, I decided to do it with my daughter who has no school on Wednesday afternoons. She was excited to help me and happily added the ingredients to the bowl (one of her favourite jobs she keeps applying for….) and thank God, the recipe had some “stirring with a spatula” too (without that, she’d have said that I underestimated her cooking talent if I didn’t let her do anything else and that would have created a big diplomatic problem…:). Anyway, we finished it all in peace!!!

As Cynthia has mentioned, we (the four of us) had a good time pulling and eating the bread with the fingers, it was that soft! The topping added a little crunchiness and a chewy consistency to the soft coconut flavoured bread. A nice homemade tropical loaf to be relished for teatime but also for breakfast. Wish you as much pleasure we had eating this bread!

Method:

I just reduced the quantity of the ingredients to half: see the recipe here!

and Happy Baking!!!
