I obtained this recipe over 25 years ago from a neighbor in Utah...her version includes a glaze, that I think makes all the difference. Glaze: 1 cup of sugar 1/2 cup water 2 Tbsp. Butter 1 tsp. coconut flavoring For Glaze, combine sugar, water and butter; bring to a boil. Add coconut flavoring. Pour hot glaze over top of loaves while still they are still warm. Let sit in pans 4 hours before removing. Also the oven temp should be 325 degrees. This recipe does make 2 regular loaf pans(bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes) or 3 small loaf pans (bake 55 to 60 minutes) and a bundt pan will hold this recipe. We just love this bread toasted and buttered.


This is a good recipe, however it makes TWO 9x5 loaf pans, not one. I have made it several times and shared the recipe with many people. It turns out very well by replacing the 1 c oil with 1/2 c oil and 1/2 c applesauce or by omitting the oil all together and using 1 c applesauce (unsweetened). It's a chewier texture, but very good if you're looking to cut some calories.


12/23/04: Very tasty but I am wondering if the oven temperature stated (375 degrees?) is a typo. I baked the loaves for the stated time and temperature and the middle of the loaves were very raw...ended up baking it for another half hour. Crust was burned but the center was salvagable. I will try this just one more time before admitting defeat.**UPDATE**I made this once more and was disappointed again. Tasty but other recipes are easier.
