Coconut Lemon Bread


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.  🙂
