This coconut key lime bread recipe turned out to be moist and flavorful without being undercooked. The flavor combination does not disappoint.
After coming up with the Basic Quick Bread recipe, I wanted to see how a sweet bread would come out using that recipe as a base. My refrigerator had a full bottle of Key lime juice that I was planning to use in a pie.
I also had a brand new bag of unsweetened dry coconut I just ordered over the internet. This gave me the idea to try these two flavors together in a sweet bread.
Some flavors like chocolate and peanut butter are known to go together. Although I’ve never heard of mixing key lime with coconut, both flavors remind me of warm tropical climates.
Naturally, these flavors should go great together, right? This was my thinking. So I went ahead and gave it a try in this coconut key lime bread recipe.
I was a little worried when baking this bread because it seemed to take forever to pass the toothpick test for being done. However, once cooled, this turned out to be a nice moist and flavorful bread that was not undercooked.
I liked this flavor combination so much, I’m already planning to bake a low carb coconut key lime pie.
