This bread is easy to make and is such a fantastic taste! Love it, keeping the recipe.
Unsure about the cake when it came out of the oven but upon cutting, it was the fluffiest, wonderfully textured cake. Brought it in for a work morning tea and everyone loved it. It wasn't too sweet, which I like. Next time I would add a little more lemon juice. Overall, really pleased with this recipe.
I've made this multiple times--several of those were by request. It always turns out perfect for me as long as I don't forget the coconut while it's toasting and burn it instead of toasting it.
Mine came out a little dry. Not as good as i'd hoped. I won't be making this again.
I had such high hopes for this recipe, but unfortunately after 2 attempts resulting in a sunken bread, I give up. It gets very brown on the edges (read: crispy) and underdone in the middle. I thought it was just me, but after trying a second time yielded similar results, I conclude it's the recipe. Bummer!
Can you split the batter up into small loaf pans?
My daughter and I made this Lemon Coconut Bread this afternoon; just to try a new recipe together. We didn't realize what a big hit it was going to be when we served it as a dessert after dinner this evening; some family members ate it plain, while others ate it ala-mode. Either way it was eaten-it was loved by all. The flavors and textures compliment each other, from the topping to the glaze, the filling, and to the bread itself.
I made this bread this morning and was delighted with it.Love the lemony taste and will make it again and again.

I’m something of a traditionalist. My family tends to gravitate toward the same desserts every year for our holiday celebrations – sugar cookies, something pumpkin, and something with chocolate…but this year, I was feeling like trying something new. Enter Cranberry Pavlova. This recipe is part of our 2014 Holiday Brochure, and I was in love at first bite.
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
Life gets extra busy this time of year. Like everyone else, my family has the normal action-packed schedule…work, basketball practice, piano lessons, gymnastics, homework…not to mention, fitting in holiday activities like baking cookies, shopping, cutting down the tree… More ...
