Coconut Bread

So for dessert tonight I had no time and also no idea what to make. So I looked through my pile of 'will make soon' and was looking for something quick. Ahh quick bread, yep, sounds about right. I had been eyeing this recipe for awhile but just didn't know if it would be ok or not. So I threw it together and wa-la! SCORE! I got this recipe off some dental wives blog but can't seem to find the blog so unfortunately can't link. All in all, its a keeper but of course I have no proof. The guests took them all home and all I have to show for it is them wrapped and ready to go out the door! Sorry! But I'm sure I'll make them again. They really were good! I served it as a thick slice with some vanilla icecream on the side. Yum-O!

Updated: made them again and look at the evidence of wonder...yummmmm!!!
