This is one of my favorite recipes, handed down to me from my boss's recipe box. It is great as a breakfast muffin, snack, or with a meal. Everyone will love this. Feel free to make it your own. Add nuts, raisins, coconut milk, or make it just how it is.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a loaf pan with butter.

    Advertisement
  • Combine flour, sugar, coconut, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; stir once or twice with a wooden spoon. Add eggs, milk, water, oil, coconut extract, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Mix well until batter is blended.

  • Pour batter into the greased loaf pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Invert onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Notes:

Use brown sugar instead of white sugar, or a mix of the two.

Substitute coconut milk for the milk if desired. If doing so, omit coconut extract, unless you really want a strong coconut flavor.

made it this morning with a bit of a twist. I used half whole wheat flour and the other half regular I also added some dried fruit raisins and cherries. oh and I used freshly grated coconut. it came out moist and yummy. one thing though although I used only one cup of sugar it was a bit too sweet. next time I will use less.

Excellent bread! I followed the recipe, substituting coconut milk for the low-fat milk called for. I don't call my version "Caribbean Bread." I don't think it is particularly Caribbean, coconut notwithstanding. The add-ins are totally optional, and I chose what I had on hand. After the mixing of dry and wet ingredients I folded in 1/3 cup of pistachios ground to small chunks, 1/4 cup of dried sweetened cranberries, and 1/4 cup of Zante currants. I made it in a 9x5 loaf pan and it is fairly shallow, so I think you could use a smaller loaf pan. I substituted Stevia for sugar as I normally do and decreased the amount of salt to 3/8 tsp to compensate for the fact that the pistachios were salted and roasted. I also added a glaze: 1 cup of confectioners sugar and .5 cup of coconut milk. I recommend these adaptations. Read More
