1 1/2 cups
1 1/2 teaspoons
packed brown sugar
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.
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.
Awesome combination of flavors, a nice twist on coffee cake. Thanks to the review below I knew to tent foil over it, and it came out perfectly!!!
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.
This recipe is so easy and delicious. You can whip it up in 15-20 minutes, then fill your house with the smells of baking bread and cinnamon!
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 used unsweetened coconut that I bought at the co-op, which may have something to do with this recipe getting 4, instead of 5 stars. This really tasted to me like a slightly coconut-y coffee cake. It's sweet, moist, and the cinnamon and brown sugar make it very tasty, but I was expecting a lot more coconut flavor. Should be called "Coconut Coffee Loaf"
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.
