Its late, but I just baked a loaf of coconut bread for the week & it turned out fantastic so I had to share what I did. This loaf was better than the last one. It is very dense, filling and is low points on WW....only 3 pts per slice! I top mine with 1 T. of the Natures Hollow jam & a few fresh berries. I feel like I am eating a slice of cheesecake!
Sherri's Lemon Coconut Bread Recipe
Mix the following ingredients in a stand up mixer with the beater blade:
1 stick Land O Lakes Light Butter (cut into small pieces. I did not have mine at room temp)
3/4 c egg beaters
1 T lemon extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
3 T. lemon juice
3/4 c. unsweetened vanilla or original almond breeze
2 oz light cream cheese (Naufchatel)
1 T vinegar (I didn't have apple cider vinegar)
1/2 cup Ideal brand sugar substitute (new product. Its Xylitol! :)
Mix all above ingredients until blended well.
3/4 c. coconut flour (sifted)
2 tsp baking powder
Mix until well blended
Spray loaf pan with Pam & Fold batter into loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 50-55 mins checking every 20 mins. Allow to sit in loaf pan about 20 mins then invert on cooling rack. Slice when cool. My loaf yielded 10 slices. I know some of you girls can get 12 slices out of your loaf. I haven't been able to do that.
I gotta tell ya girls, this came out AMAZING!!!! Nothing short of a little taste of heaven! I think the difference was the light STICK butter and the Ideal sugar substitute. I was hesitant to try it (Ideal) but when I tasted it, it was very good & no bad aftertaste. If you see it on your grocers shelves, don't hesitate to buy it. I think it is great & not too expensive either...around $4.50 for a large pouch. I'm not crazy about baking with Truvia. Its OK, but I notice an aftertaste with it.
I had the end slice with a little natures Hollow Apricot jam & it was so yummy! I just wanted to share my little tweak of this recipe with you girls. The original recipe was taken from Dawn & Rosalie's Blogs. Kudos to you ladies for sharing it. I'm hooked!!!!
Have a great night!
