Coco-pumpkin bread

Here is the recipe for the Coconut Pumpkin Bread I sort of "invented" yesterday out of available ingredients. It actually turned out to be delicious - very moist with a nice crumb. It is definitely on the dessert side of things, almost a loaf cake instead of a quick bread. We had some Mexican friends over last night and they loved it, even the kids.

Coco-pumpkin bread

Makes 2 - 8X4 loaves.
Preheat oven to 350F

Whisk together dry ingredients:

3 cups white flour
2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
tsp nutmeg
tsp cloves

2/3 cup unsweetened flaked coconut (I used unsweetened because that is what I have available - you could use sweetened if you want, but you might want to cut back the sugar)
1 cup toasted walnuts, chopped

Stir together wet ingredients:

1-15 oz can pumpkin (not pie mix) or 2 cups puree
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup canned cream of coconut
2 eggs

Mix dry ingredients and add to mixed wet ingredients. Stir to mix thoroughly but dont over mix.

Spray or grease pans, spread batter evenly and bake for about one hour at 350F. Top of loaf will NOT seem done. Cool on wire rack for 15 minutes. Remove from pans and apply glaze.

Glaze: Mix about cup powdered sugar with 2-3 TBS of coconut cream until desired consistency. Pour over warm loaves.

Hope you enjoy!
