In Response to Re: Easter April 24th 2011:
Here is a very unusual "cake" for anyone who LOVES coconut and pecans. Vanilla Tea Cake 1 Cup Butter NO margarine please 2 Cups sugar 6 Eggs 1 package, 12 ounces vanilla wafers, ground to a fine crumb 7 1/2 ounces coconut (pulse this a bit to make it less "stringy" if you want) 1/2 cup milk 1 Cup ground pecans Pre heat oven to 300 degrees.  Grease and flour a Tube pan or Bundt pan. Mix butter and sugar in bowl of electric mixer, scrape down sides. Add eggs one at a time, beat between additions. Mix in vanilla wafers and milk, mix well. Add remaining ingredients, mix well. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 2 hours. The 2 hour bake time is not an error. You could probably make this cake with any type of cookie.  A lemon would probably be very good and would go with the coconut and pecans.

OH Nikki now I have drool all over the place as your recipe sounds out of this world.  Thanks sooo much for sharing!

Hey Susan -- my batch of Coconut Bread is 'resting' on counter top .... has about 10 minutes left.
I realized that the recipe calls for no shortening .... Is this OK?
I've never baked anything with no shortening.
Gosh, I hope this turns out OK.

And, well, I couldn't help it ... I dumped in some pecans.

My Coconut Bread is finished, oth of its pan and cooling on the countertop -- it's gorgeous.
I couldn't wait the full time for cooling so I sliced off the end.  The taste is very good, very mild...
There's not a lot of coconut taste .... so I plan on adding more coconut and pecans the next time I make it.
And this is one recipe Iwill certainly bake again!!
Thank you Susan.

And the next time I make banana bread - I'm going to add coconut - something I never thoughof before.

Nancy, next time you slice off a piece of the Coconut bread toast it and slather with a bit of the Nutella that is in the jar in the cupboard.  Will be great I promise!!!

Embarassed Yell Well, phooey .... I had that glorious loaf cake setting on the counter top cooling ........... Peaches found it.
A cat with a coconut cake??   She nibbled away a straight line down the top.   This is the cat that will rip off my arm for a black olive.

I carved out the top of the cake and it's now setting INSIDE a cabinet door waiting to be wrapped.
This cake was intended for the people at church - now, of course, I won't give any away.  I'll just wrap slices and pile them in the freezer.
Darn, darn, darn cat.

That is an absolute riot!!  Are you sure it was Peaches that sweet thing and not Badcat?  Did you smell their breath for coconut?  Don't forget to try the Nutella on a slice. 
My last dog, a German Shepard liked to "hide" things  I had 2 very nice rib eye steaks on the counter that I had just taken from the freezer.  I went into the next room when I came back, just moments later, one of the steaks was gone.  I looked around and found it, still wrapped, not a tooth mark on it, in the laundry basket under some towels.

3 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 teaspoons minced fresh tarragon
1 tablespoon chopped green onion
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 can (6 ounces) crabmeat, drained, flaked and cartilage removed


What to Do
1. Cut eggs in half lengthwise. Remove yolks; set aside egg whites and four yolks (discard remaining yolks or save for another use).

2. In a bowl, mash reserved yolks. Stir in the mayonnaise, lemon juice, tarragon, onion, salt, hot pepper sauce and cayenne. Add crab; mix well. Stuff or pipe into egg whites. Refrigerate until serving.

Serves 8

Hi Nancy!

I'm so happy that you like the recipe...to be honest, that is one of my favorite bread recipes.  I always add more coconut when I make it but then I am a coconut lover! 

Good idea about adding cocount to banana bread...hummmmm, I think I might try that too!  Thanks Nancy!

Nancy, you are going to have to get your cat a kitchen of his own
 or at least get him into a cooking school.  One time when I was bringing in groceries from the car, I set the bag of groceries on the table only to return to found that our Schnauzer had pulled it over and ate about a pound of red grapes.  I called the vet because I knew that it's bad for dogs to eat raisins and onions but grapes are just raisins before they dry.  The vet said to watch him and the only thing is he go a case of diarrhea.  What a mess.  He was quarantined to the kitchen until his bout passed.
