If you love coconut as much as we do, then you will definitely want to try this Pineapple Coconut Loaf. It’s one of our most popular recipes!

❤️WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

This bread has a wonderful flavor and it’s easy to make. It’s a quick bread so you just throw it all together and bake. It would be the perfect addition to any breakfast or brunch but could also be a dessert. I goes great with coffee!

🍴KEY INGREDIENTS

  • All-purpose flour
  • Salt
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • White granulated sugar
  • Eggs
  • Butter 
  • Coconut extract (could use vanilla extract)
  • Buttermilk
  • Sweetened flake coconut

SWAPS

You could use unsweetened coconut if you want to, we just like the sweetened version. I think this recipe would also work fine with regular milk, but the buttermilk really makes it moist.

🍽️HOW TO MAKE

So easy to make and not a lot of ingredients! This coconut bread is a definite winner!

COOKING STEPS

Step 1
Whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda and set aside.  Cream sugar, butter and eggs in a mixing bowl.

Step 2
 Pour in flour mixture along with buttermilk and coconut extract and continue mixing until all ingredients are wet.  Fold in coconut.  

Step 3
Spray a 9 x 5 loaf pan with cooking spray and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes until center tests done. I top the bread with a little extra coconut before I put it in the oven.

⭐TIP

Don’t over-mix the bread; it can cause it to dry out during the cooking process. You can also use parchment paper instead of cooking spray in your pan if you prefer.

You can also toast the coconut if you prefer, here is how we toast coconut.

❓FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do you prefer sweetened or unsweetened coconut?

We prefer sweetened, but you can use whichever you like.

Can you replace the buttermilk with coconut milk?

We have never made it that way, but you can try it. The buttermilk adds a certain fat content to the recipe, so it will change it some.

STORING

We store this bread in an airtight container and it will keep for a few days. You can freeze quick breads for around 3 months.

Sour Cream Bread

This bread is easy to make and has a wonderful texture. Crust on top and soft center.

SERVING SIZE

This is about 4-6 servings, depending on how big of a slice. I always say people have about 2 slices.
