Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes
Servings 1 loaf



  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup butter - room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup sweetened coconut


  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp unsweetened coconut milk
  • cup toasted coconut



  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir & set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, butter, eggs, coconut milk, and vanilla. Whisk well until combined.
  • Stir in the dry ingredients.
  • Fold in the coconut.
  • Transfer to a greased loaf pan.
  • Bake 45-55 minutes or until the toothpick test is clean.
  • Let the bread cool on a wire rack in the pan until it reaches room temperature before adding the glaze and removing it from the pan.


  • Whisk together the confectioner's sugar and milk, starting with just 1 tbsp and increasing up to 2 tbsp - until you reach your desired consistency. Some like it thin enough to soak in and others like it thicker like frosting.
  • Pour or spread the mixture on top of the cooled bread.
  • Sprinkle with toasted coconut before slicing and serving.
