Coconut Pumpkin Bread

By Arlene Cummings
Created January 10, 2017
The sweet taste of coconut and white chocolate is a wonderful complement to warm spiced pumpkin bread.

This time of the year, I can’t seem to get enough pumpkin. I put it in pasta, pastries and pies…and even spread it on toast. But my most favorite pumpkin treat is sweet bread. I love it with nuts, cranberries, dates–you name it! This is the first time I ever prepared it with coconut, and it won’t be my last.

Coconut Pumpkin Bread is a fun new twist on the classic. The sweet crunch of coconut tastes amazing with pumpkin, while the white chocolate-coconut glaze on top is truly the icing on the cake. This bread is so easy…the hardest part is waiting for it to cool long enough to add the glaze. 

The day I made this bread, I sent one to my husband’s office. He said it disappeared in a matter of minutes. Everyone loved it! 

The recipe contains lots of wholesome ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. 

After I make my batter, I fold in the coconut and bake it.

It rises to a nice golden brown. The bread would actually be great with just a dusting of powdered sugar. But I thought I would make it extra special with a drizzle of white chocolate and additional coconut.
