I found the yummy sounding recipe at Baking Bites. She notes that the recipe is based on one of her favorite quickbread, which is a recipe for Coconut Bread from bills, Bill Granger’s restaurant in Sydney, Australia to which she spiced up with lemon juice and zest.
  • "1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cups milk (lowfat is fine)
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened)
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350F.

Grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.

Stir in sugar and coconut.In a medium bowl or a large measuring cup, whisk together eggs, milk, lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in egg mixture.

Stir until just combined and only a few streaks of flour remain. Add in melted butter and stir until just smooth, being careful not to overmix.

Pour into prepared loaf pan and bake for 60-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Turn loaf out onto a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.
Makes 1 loaf."

As the loaf needs to be baked for an hour or more, this will be more of a cold weather day project (maybe tomorrow as it was chilly out today) so it can help warm up the apartment.
