With this capricious weather, I needed a comforting bread that would take me right away to the tropics 😀! The kitchen is the perfect place to travel in an instant right? In my closet, I found a coconut package that I left unused during the last holiday season. This idea of Coconut Lime Ginger Bread came up.
At first glance, the mix of coconut, lime, and ginger can seem a little strange. But in fact, the result was a pleasant surprise for my taste buds. All these ingredients pair very well together and give a fresh kick to this bread. I also added a shredded apple which adds more fluff and fiber to the cake.
This Coconut Lime Ginger Bread is a nice discovery if you are like me tasting some new flavors. My family really enjoyed the tangy and exotic blend too. They found it very light, delicious and is entirely different from the traditional loaves of bread that I previously made. They asked me to make another one because it is already gone too fast!
