Coconut Cream Bread Made Easy!

Baking cakes is a stress buster for me. Really, I could be having the most challenging of days but once the cake tin is sitting pretty in the oven – all’s well with the world.

For afternoon tea, I have always relied on Banana Bread. Whilst I still stand by that recipe, it is always a good idea to try something new. That’s how I got to bake some bread featuring the ‘super ingredient’ of the hour – Coconut.

The bread turned out to be so delicious that 3 slices were polished of by dear ol’ me in one go. A word of caution, don’t do that as the cake is pretty filling. Out of the word delicious but very filling.
