Bursts of tart partridgeberries combined with coconut in a sweet bread that is quick and easy to make! You can also use blueberries or cranberries 🙂
I love a good berry loaf! I also love coconut! So I combined the two into one moist delicious sweet bread!
I have a lot of partridgeberries in my freezer this time of year as it’s picking season and I’m sure a lot of my Newfoundland followers do too! Haul out those berries, no need to thaw them and make this Partridgeberry Coconut Bread for your company this long holiday weekend (Canada Thanksgiving). Your company will thank you 🙂 as well as your kids, your husband and whoever else you share it with!
Partridgeberry Coconut Bread
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract (or 1/2 tsp coconut extract for a more concentrated coconut flavor)
- 2 cups white flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup low fat milk
- 1 1/4 cup flaked unsweetened coconut (I used medium)
- 1 heaping cup of partridgeberries, fresh or frozen (or blueberries or cranberries)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x5in loaf pan. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and beat well until combined. Beat in vanilla.
In another bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt and whisk to combine.
Add the flour mixture and milk to the wet ingredients and beat well to combine. Stir in coconut and partridgeberries ~ stir until just combined. Batter will be thick.
Pour batter into greased loaf pan and bake for 1 hour or until tester inserted into bread comes out clean. Remove from oven and let stand in loaf pan for about 10 minutes before removing and cooling on a wire rack. ENJOY! 🙂
NOTE: I used frozen berries but you could also use fresh. If your berries are frozen, DO NOT THAW! Add frozen berries to batter and stir to combine just before pouring into your loaf pan.
