Coconut Bread

Simple Coconut Sweet Bread

Coconut sweet bread is a delightful treat that is easy to make and incredibly versatile. It is perfect for a quick breakfast or an afternoon snack, and its rich and tropical flavor makes it a hit among coconut lovers. The bread's moist texture and delicious taste make it an excellent option for those who want a sweet treat that is not too heavy or overwhelming.
One of the best things about coconut sweet bread is that it can be customized to suit different tastes and preferences. For example, you can add a variety of different fruits or nuts to the batter, such as bananas, pineapples, almonds, or pecans, to add even more flavor and texture to the bread. You can also add spices such as cinnamon or nutmeg to give it a warm and cozy flavor.

Servings 8 servings


  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup shredded coconut


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a 9×5 inch (23×13 cm) loaf pan and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, eggs, and vegetable oil until well combined.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  • Fold in the shredded coconut.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean.
  • Remove the bread from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes.
  • Run a knife around the edges of the pan to loosen the bread, then turn it out onto a wire rack to cool completely.


Baking Tips for the Best Results:

  1. Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature before mixing.
  2. Sift the dry ingredients to ensure a smooth and even batter.
  3. Do not overmix the batter as this can result in a tough and dry bread.
  4. Use a toothpick to check if the bread is fully cooked by inserting it in the center – if it comes out clean, the bread is done.
  5. Allow the bread to cool completely before slicing to prevent it from falling apart.
