One Bowl Coconut Bread

This easy coconut bread is not overly sweet and bakes up fluffy and soft, making it a great bread for sandwiches. This is a no-yeast bread recipe and the batter takes just minutes to make.

It’s rare to find super easy bread recipes. Most of the time, if I want bread that’s good for sandwiches, I need to use yeast but this coconut bread bakes up like white sandwich bread with very little effort.

One bowl and a whisk. I love minimal cleanup. Even though it’s no yeast bread recipe, the bread still has a fluffy texture and is sturdy enough to use as sandwich bread. I found the recipe for this coconut bread on Taste of Home and followed it as is. I was able to mix it up and put it in the oven in a matter of minutes. You can taste the coconut and it’s a little on the sweeter side, but it’s not so sweet as to be a dessert bread.

This recipe is definitely a keeper for me. I’ll make it again the next time I’m craving bread and don’t have the energy to make a yeast bread.

This coconut bread recipe is so easy. It takes only a few minutes to make the batter.

  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine egg, milk, vanilla, and almond extract. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and stir just until combined.
  • Fold in the coconut flakes and pour the batter into a greased 9 x 5” loaf pan. Bake the bread for 40 to 50 minutes at 350°F.

I like to cool the bread completely before slicing it.

How to Store Homemade Coconut Bread

  • The bread will keep well at room temperature for a few days or you can wrap it and keep it in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  • Or, you can freeze coconut bread. Cool it completely, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and store it in a freezer bag for up to 3 months. To thaw, leave it in the refrigerator or keep it at room temperature for a few hours.
