Coconut Lemon Bread

by Nicole on May 6, 2012

Brace yourself. This bread is so very delicious. It has two of my favorite flavor elements, Coconut (big surprise) and the freshness of Lemon. The fact that there is also a coconutty cream cheese filling takes it just shy of too far. I knew it was love as soon as I saw it on the Land O Lakes site.  I shared this with some friends and my husband took a sampling to work and it was a huge hit. This would make a great brunch contribution or a not too sweet dessert as well. Or you could just keep making trips to the kitchen pretending you need just one more sample to make sure it is just right.  :)

It also has a 4-piece chopper attachment which
is perfect for cutting vegetable so you can blend
it to make soft diet or utilize it for your cooking needs.
The Braun series of immersion hand blenders are any cooks dream.
As it generally comes in a very small size, it is extremely easy to get placed anywhere in your kitchen and yes it also can make it easy to wash at the same time.
