Coconut bread – quick bread

We all make mistakes. Sometimes big mistakes.

Mine was also big. A BIG pack of coconut flakes.

Now, if you know how to use it up, then it’s not a problem. But if you are short of ideas, the bag will totally weigh you down.

Thank God for the internet and the problem isn’t that big anymore. It’s one cup short now and I am taking it cup-wise now a days.

  1. I always have a bag of coconut flakes in my refrigerator and so never consider it a mistake though there are other things that come under that category in my home. By the way that coconut loaf idea is tempting me.


  2. I know what you mean by that — I have so many ingredients that are weighing me right down into the earth :-) Your coconut bread looks soft & fluffy.
