Mary Ann Dudek suggests a cup of tea when enjoying a slice of this cake-like bread. "It does well at bake sales and is a wonderful gift-particularly for coconut lovers," says the Cleveland, Ohio baker.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1-1/4 cups sweetened shredded coconut

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Stir in coconut.
  2. Pour into a greased 9x5-in. loaf pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 1 hour. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
