I’ve been inspired by my trip to Hawaii last year and can’t stop brainstorming recipes with tropical flavors these days! This coconut lime bread comes together quickly for a sweet summer treat. With hints of lime and shredded coconut in the bread and a topping of coconut glaze this recipe will surely be a favorite for either breakfast or dessert.

Coconut Lime Bread

Key Ingredients in This Recipe

  • Lime zest – The lime zest is the grated outer skin from the citrus to add a concentrated flavor. Use a zester or microplane to remove the zest. If you don’t have a zester use a paring knife or vegetable peeler to remove the rind and finely chop it.
  • Shredded coconut – I use unsweetened, shredded coconut in this recipe so the bread isn’t overly sweet. The glaze adds plenty of sugar and the shredded coconut adds some texture to this bread.

How to Make Coconut Lime Bread

  1. Heat the oven. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Whisk together the dry ingredients. In a medium mixing bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and table salt then set aside.
  3. Beat the butter and sugar. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  4. Add the flour and buttermilk. Beat in the vanilla and the lime juice then alternate adding the flour mixture and the buttermilk, starting and ending with the flour mixture. Stir in the lime zest and shredded coconut.
  5. Bake the bread. Prepare a 8”x4” (1½-pound) loaf pan with butter and flour then evenly spread the batter in the pan. Bake until a toothpick or knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 to 50 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes then remove the bread from the pan.
  6. Make the glaze. In a small mixing bowl whisk together the coconut milk and confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Spoon the glaze over the top of the bread and top with shredded coconut and lime zest.
