Brown Butter Coconut Bread
Adapted from Smitten Kitchen

2 large eggs
1 ¼ cups milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 ½ cups all purpose flour
¼ tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup granulated sugar
1 ½ cups coconut flakes
3/4 cup high-quality semisweet chocolate chunks (optional)
6 tbsp unsalted butter, melted and browned

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and vanilla. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon. Add sugar, coconut, and chocolate, if using, and stir to mix. Make a well in the center, and pour in the egg mixture, then stir wet and dry ingredients together until just combined. Add butter, and stir until just smooth—be careful not to over mix. Butter and flour a 9 x 5” loaf pan, or coat it with nonstick spray. Spread batter in pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, between 50-60 minutes. Cool in pan for 5 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack.

      Except banana bread is on a different level! I liked that this bread had enough flavor to be eaten alone, but not too much, so that you can spread butter or jam on it without feeling like you’re on sugar overload.
