Toasted Coconut & Pineapple Quick Bread

Toasted Coconut & Pineapple Quick Bread


Get yourself a cold glass of milk and start loafing around with a slice or two of this delicious and moist quick bread.

This pineapple coconut bread is rich and sweet, made with toasted coconut, pineapple, eggs and butter. For a real tropical feel, add a bit of lime juice to the batter and sing “The Coconut” song by Harry Nilsson while you wait for it to bake.

Doesn’t that look delicious?!
