yummy recipe at Baking Bites
I found the yummy 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. I think the flavor and texture are somewhere between a quick bread and a pound cake and would go great with morning or afternoon tea.
It is great on its own, but my son doesn't like coconut so also I tried doctoring with some purchased vanilla whipped frosting - it was a little too sweet for me like this, but if you have a sweet tooth you might try serving it with frosting or drizzling with a powered sugar/water glaze.

I varied my recipe only slightly from the original.

    Pour into prepared loaf pan and bake for 55 minutes (I used a smaller pan than recommended and it is new), or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

    Turn loaf out onto a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.
