Coconut Pumpkin Nut Bread

This bread is moist and dense, one of my favorites when looking for comfort food. It combines two of my favorite tastes coconut and pumpkin.

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 cups packed dark brown sugar

2/3 cup white sugar

1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree

1 cup vegetable oil

2/3 cup coconut milk

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2/3 cup unsweetened flaked coconut

1 cup chopped walnuts, toasted

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 8 x 4 inch loaf pans.

Combine flour, sugars, pumpkin, oil, coconut milk, baking soda, salt, and spices. Mix until well blended. Fold in coconut and nuts. Pour into prepared pans. Bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven. Cover with foil tightly, and allow to steam 10 minutes. Remove foil, and turn out onto cooling rack. Tent lightly with the foil, and allow to cool completely.
