Coconut Pecan Bread

Coconut Pecan Bread

Adapted a little from this recipe: Coconut Bread










  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons melted shortening
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 3/4 cup pecans (more or less to your liking)
  1. Sift flour, baking powder, salt & sugar in a bowl.
  2. Add melted shortening & milk.
  3. Next add beaten egg, pecans and coconut.
  4. Bake in greased loaf pan for 1 hour at 350 degrees.



I made this (prep time was less than 10 minutes!) just tonight. I cut one slice to taste it (and to let my hubby have half a slice, as you see in the pictures). I baked this to bring to work (I had promised a co-worker I'd try to make her a coconut nut bread, since she loves coconuts and pecans (as I do!). It's a little chewy (but the good kind of chewy) but very moist and yummy.

Very easy beginner quick bread recipe.

Copied your recipe for coconut pecan bread. What do you mean by "melted shortening"?

Shortening is usually solid, so you melt the shortening. That makes it easier to mix in with the other ingredients.

Shortening can be melted in the microwave or on the stove in a small pan.

Hope this helps!

Shortening: butter, margarine or Crisco?
