Making this fast orange coconut bread is easy. In actuality, it just takes around 10 minutes to combine the batter and place it in the oven.

Making muffins is akin to the method. In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients first, and then the wet components. They should be combined, then poured into a loaf pan and baked.

(By the way, the bread is wonderfully moist since we add yogurt to the batter.

There are two things you can do after the bread has been baked and cooled. You can glaze it or leave it as is.

We adore it in both forms. You’ll be relieved to learn that the glaze only needs two ingredients, powdered sugar, and orange juice if you decide to use it.

If you choose not to glaze, we advise toasting and buttering the bread slices. The coconut toasts along with the bread. It’s quite good.

  • Any vanilla yogurt will do for this; we used Yoplait Greek vanilla yogurt.
  • A loaf pan measuring 8 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches has also worked well for us (in fact, since it is a little smaller, the batter domes nicely).
