  1. In a small bowl, stir together coconut, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
  2. Measure flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a bowl; mix well.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs until frothy. Beat in oil and sugar. Blend in sour cream. Add flour mixture, and stir until combined. Put 1/2 of the batter in the bottom of a greased 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan. Sprinkle 1/2 of the cinnamon mixture over batter. Top with remaining batter by putting dabs here and there. Sprinkle remaining cinnamon mixture over top. Cut through batter with a knife to give a swirling, marbled effect.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour. After loaf stands for 10 minutes, remove from pan to cool on rack.

I made 2 desserts for a holiday dinner I was invited to and really wish I hadn't made this one (for the first time) because it was bland and boring. Still not even sure what purpose the sour cre...

I was looking for a simpler recipe to augment my "fancier" Christmas baking repertoire. Well! This one did it - with bells on! The only change I made was to use low-fat sour cream. I got three m...

I used unsweetened coconut that I bought at the co-op, which may have something to do with this recipe getting 4, instead of 5 stars. This really tasted to me like a slightly coconut-y coffee c...

I followed the recipe exactly, and the bread turned out perfectly. It received rave reviews. For some reason I found the marbling effect a bit difficult to achieve. I will have to practice ne...

I also found that I had a problem with the top browning to quicky, though that may have had something to do with me using half yogurt, half sour cream and also half of the oil. In addition I al...
