Coconut Bread is wonderful to serve family and friends with coffee.  It keeps well for several days in a cool spot and can be heated in the microwave.  If you like coconut, you will love this bread.  Coconut bread makes a great gift if you want to give a homemade food item.  You might also like our recipe for Old Fashioned Nutmeg Bread.  I have not tried freezing this bread but see no reason why you couldn’t.  I just love having breads on hand in case someone stops by to visit.  You could double this recipe to make two loaves and you could add raisins, nuts, dried fruits. It is a very versatile recipe.

Ingredients for coconut bread:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

2 eggs

1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup, softened

1 1/2 teaspoons coconut extract (could use vanilla extract)

1 cup buttermilk

1 cup of sweetened flake coconut

Whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda and set aside.  Cream sugar, butter and eggs in a mixing bowl. Pour in flour mixture along with buttermilk and coconut extract and continue mixing until all ingredients are wet.  Fold in coconut.  Spray a 9 x 5 loaf pan with cooking spray and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes until center tests done.  Makes 1 loaf.  Enjoy!

Note:  I toast my coconut flakes before adding to ingredients.  This is not necessary but adds a nutty flavor to the bread.  You can learn how to toast coconut 3 different ways here: How to Toast Coconut

  1. Sounds absolutely delicious! I can’t wait to make it.
    What do you think about replacing the buttermilk with coconut milk? And maybe cutting down the coconut extract?
    Or does the buttermilk effect the baking soda?5 stars
