Baking Cake

Coconut Bread

Easy Coconut Bread

Everybody loves a family recipe right?

One of these days a good friend of mine was telling me that he had grown up eating Coconut Bread, that his mother used to bake it all the time. A few days later he manage to get the recipe from his mother and today I finally found the time to bake it.

It’s one of those old school recipes:  easy, very few ingredients and no need for kitchen gadgets.    Believe me or not, these beauties have just 4 ingredients and it took me 5 min to make it.

Only adjustment I made from the original recipe was to transform the quantities to cups.     It is quite a firm and lumpy batter because of the large amount of coconut and I thought that it would not work but they turned out lovely –  Expect moist and firm sweet coconut buns, a treat to be eaten with a nice cup of tea.

Enjoy it!
