3 c flour
1 tsp salt
1 c sugar
1 c evaporated milk
1/2 c unsalted butter -- melted and cooled
1 tbsp baking powder
2 c finely grated fresh coconut
1 large egg -- well beaten
1 tsp vanilla
Sift flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in coconut. Combine egg, milk, vanil la and butter. Make a well in the dry ingredients. Pour liquid into the well. Stir lightly but thoroughly and pour into 2 greased 8 or 9 inch loaf pans, filling pans about 2/ 3 full. Sprinkle the top of the batter with sugar. Bake at 350 F for about 55 minutes or until they test done.
Notes: I have used packaged coconut instead of the fresh but found a little more liqui d was needed. Also the flavor was not quite as good but still passable.
Nice toasted for breakfast but watch since it burns easily.
