With coconut pudding in the batter, this Coconut Pumpkin Bread is fantastic on its own, but with cream cheese frosting and toasted coconut on top, it is over the top delicious!
I mentioned last week that one of my favorite things about fall is all the baking I get to do. And pumpkin recipes are at the top of my list of fall favorites. We love pumpkin bread at our house, and I have several recipes that I rotate through.
This Coconut Pumpkin Bread is one that I grew up with. I got the recipe from my mom when I moved out and went to college. I still love it now as much as I did when I was little. The coconut pudding makes it extra moist and yummy!
Most of the time we have it without the frosting, and it is still plenty tasty. But if you want to splurge a little, the cream cheese frosting and toasted coconut on top makes it decadent and wonderful! And truth be told, you could probably serve it as a dessert. But if you want to eat it for breakfast, I’m not one to judge. 🙂
