I’ve been contemplating this combination of flavors since shortly after making the Orange Cranberry Pumpkin Bread last month. At least the pineapple and coconut. After making the Orange Cranberry Pumpkin Bread, it dawned on me that orange would be a great addition. The orange did not disappoint! It is so moist, and the crust is nice and crispy! With the flavors of the Caribbean, it is a bright note on a cold winter’s day.

Can you freeze coconut bread?

These Coconut Breads freeze quite well, so you can make them in advance. The texture of the crust is superior if they are fresh, but the flavor is still perfect after thawing!

  • Preheat oven to 350°F / 177°C.
  • Process nuts in food processor.
  • Process pineapple in food processor, if using sliced or chunk pineapple, leave a few of the pieces pea sized or so. Place in a colander to further drain. Press down with a fork or your hand to drain further.
  • Quarter orange and remove seeds. Place pieces in food processor and pulse a few times. Rind pieces should not be too large, but I like some of them about pea size or slightly larger.
  • Mix flour with baking soda, salt, nutmeg. ginger. Set aside.
  • Beat eggs in mixing bowl. Add sugar and beat until frothy, about 1 minute.
  • Add pineapple and orange and combine.
  • Add dry ingredients about 1 cup at a time, just until mixed..
  • Incorporate Coconut and nuts to the batter by hand.
  • Spray loaf pans with no stick spray.
  • Fill loaf pans 2/3 full.
  • Bake 45 minutes – 1 hour, depending on size of loaves, or until pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Allow loaves to cool on cooling rack in the pans for at least 1 hour. Then slide knife down the edges to loosen. If they are cool enough, they literally fall right out when turned upside down. Let loaves cool fully on rack.
  • These freeze well but crust will get slightly soggy. To freeze. wrap in plastic wrap and then in foil or freezer paper.

General Baking Tips:
Always measure dry ingredients with a dry measuring cup. Measure with dry measuring cups or weigh dry ingredients.
Always measure liquid ingredients with liquid measuring cup
Never break eggs directly into recipe ingredients. Break eggs into a separate bowl, in case you get any shells, so that you can pull them out.
Make sure that you know what temperature your oven is set at. Buy an oven thermometer and check oven temperature regularly.
Always check baked goods, like cakes or quick breads with cake tester, placed in center. If the tester comes out clean, it’s done.

Great for gifting and enjoying for a breakfast, snack, or dessert.

    1. No. There isn’t. That’s why there are so many eggs in it. It’s very good and incredibly moist! Hope you like it Linda!

    This looks really yummy. Especially so, since today is my low-carb day. Darn. Love the idea of leaving the pith and rind on the orange. They both provide great flavors into the mix. Dare I ask: Send bread to CA?
