Recipe - Coconut Bread

Today I made some delicious COCONUT BREAD because I was walking through the Norton Street Plaza and I found some amazing curls of shaved coconut in the health food store. It was my first attempt at a sweet bread in the new Bread Machine.
It smelt like heaven as it was baking, drenching the house in warm coconut smells. And it looked pretty darn good too:

You can see the curls of coconut in the crust, and also in the sliced bread... I can't wait to toast some for breakfast tomorrow!

And for pinkandsparkly (and any others who are obsessed with their bread machines) here is the recipe:

Coconut Bread

1      cup unsweetened coconut milk (not cream of coconut)
1     egg yolk
1 1/2     tablespoons vegetable oil (I used Peanut Oil)
1 1/2     teaspoons coconut extract
1            teaspoon vanilla essence
3     cups plain white flour
1    cup coconut (I used shaved coconut)
2 1/2     tablespoons sugar
3/4     teaspoon salt
1 1/2     teaspoons bread machine yeast
1            teaspoon bread improver

1. Add ingredients in the usual order, as specified by your breadmaker.
2. Bake on the SWEET bread setting (on mine, 3hr 20min), I chose a Medium Crust.
3. This makes a 750g loaf.

Next time I would add even more coconut, perhaps substituting one cup of flour for a cup of dessicated coconut.

My partner, now know as The Rotisserie King, made a more traditional roast chicken:
