Coconut Brunch Bread

Relda Jean Sandgran


This is one of my favorites. I make this and my banana bread for Christmas gifts. This can also be made in a 10" bundt pan.

This coconut bread is delicious! It is soft, moist and has the perfect amount of coconut flavor. We love all the crunchy bits from the walnuts. The glaze on top makes a perfect coconut crust. They'd make a tasty gift! The Test Kitchen
