This bread was delicious but I did have a problem with the top getting too browned before the loaf was finished baking. I tented the top with foil and this seemed to help a bit. Also I added chocolate chips and we all loved it. Next time I'll try it in a 9x9-inch cake pan.
This recipe is very sweet (especially if you accidentally use sweetend coconut flakes like I did!) but very delicious with a glass of milk. I reduced the oil by a half and used half-fat sour cream and it still came out delicious.
I loved this bread but did make one change. I'm rating it a 4 as written because I think the flavour of the cinnamon would be lost by just sprinkling it dry in the middle. once the batter was finished I took out about 1/3 and put in a separate bowl. I added the brown sugar and doubled the cinnamon to this batter and stirred well. I then poured some of the original batter into the pan then a few spoonfuls of the cinnamon batter back to the original batter until both bowls were empty and in the pan. I then used a knife to swirl the 2 batters. (as you would a marble cake). MMMM GOOD! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!
I made 2 desserts for a holiday dinner I was invited to and really wish I hadn't made this one (for the first time) because it was bland and boring. Still not even sure what purpose the sour cream served because the cake was not moist or delicious. I bake every two days making loafs cookies cakes tarts and pies so it was not user-error. Not sure what needed to be added to make the flavor "pop" but the coconut wasn't apparent and adding more cinnamon would just make it a cinnamon loaf. Not adding this to my list of favs.
I was looking for a simpler recipe to augment my "fancier" Christmas baking repertoire. Well! This one did it - with bells on! The only change I made was to use low-fat sour cream. I got three mini loaves out of the one recipe and brought one to work. My guinea pig co-worker my favorite taste tester ate almost an entire loaf by himself!!! He said it was his favorite so far. So especially for him - and me too -I'm giving this simple and delicious loaf top rating. Now I'm going to bake more - and a big one for his Christmas morning breakfast.:-) Thanks!
I followed the recipe exactly and the bread turned out perfectly. It received rave reviews. For some reason I found the marbling effect a bit difficult to achieve. I will have to practice next time as I will definitely be making this bread again.
