Here’s the thing; George and I are both creative people and we will always find an outlet for that creativity in some form or another just like anyone else. For me it once came out in writing and lately it’s in using my phone to take pictures while I’m out and about. George primarily lets his creativity out with music (did you know you can buy the album he did with his friend James over here?) but in recent weeks he’s been channeling it into food.
He makes delicious suppers, many of them in the crockpot, which is something I appreciate since it then translates into a supper for me the next day at work. He’s been making good use of the bread machine too, baking up fresh bread a couple of times a week. However, his latest endeavor has been to make coconut bread like his mother makes and it’s just as delicious as it sounds.
Here’s the tasty recipe:
- 2 cups of flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup of butter or shortening
- 1 cup grated coconut
- 1/2 cup milk (you can add up to 1/4 of a cup more if it’s too dry)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
Sift flour and baking powder, and combine with sugar, coconut, and spices. Add in the butter or shortening, and use two knives or a pastry blender to combine. Add milk and mix gently.
Pour into a greased and floured loaf pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
