    The 'bread' was quite dense, but had a wonderful coconut flavour to it. I wondered whether the recipe should have some butter/fat in it? Nevertheless, I enjoyed making and eating it and it was very easy to do.  -  13 Apr 2011


    I loved this bread & I made the pineapple jam to go with it as suggested. Nice, clear, easy to follow instructions & a tasty tea time treat. I have put on my picture so you can see what it looks like.  -  18 Oct 2009


    Not sure what I've done wrong, came out very crumbly.  -  26 Jan 2012
