Coconut Bread

I've made several quick breads and muffins from this book, and they are all easy to make and very good!  Recipes include photos for each bread.  I have also made recipes from the companion book, 501 Cookies.

This bread had a sponge texture and all the nuts were pushed to the top while baking.

Makes 1 loaf.

2 cups Bisquick mix
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup flaked coconut
3/4 cup chopped pecans
2 large eggs, beaten
3 TB melted margarine
1 1/2 cups milk

Position the rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F.  Lightly grease and flour a loaf pan.

In a large bowl, blend together the Bisquick, sugar, cinnamon, coconut, and pecans.  Add the eggs, butter, and milk all at one time.  Stir mixture until smooth.

Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and bake 45-50 minutes, or until a cake tester or toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean and the top is golden.
