This recipe is larger than two 9x5 loafs of bread! The batter fills the 9x5 pans to the very top, so 350 degrees for 35 minutes is not long enough to cook the dough in the middle. It turns out burned on the outside, raw on the inside.

Delicious recipe! Tastes like my Mom's. As a personal preference, I would use less sugar and a little less coconut and substitute Trinidad mixed essense (may be found in a West Indian or Indian grocery) for the almond extract. Thanks for the submission...I will be making this again!

This recipe is ok except the cooking time is all wrong. It requires way longer than the time specified. Like about an hour maybe!
