I have seen this recipe many times in various Taste of Home cookbooks and magazines and finally decided to give it a try. I made the recipe exactly as followed and it was way too crumbly. It had good flavor though and the crumbliness did not stop my children from picking at the loaf all day long. Probably won't be making again, but it did have a nice coconut flavor.

The cake was delicious. It reminds me of
eating a piece of dense wedding cake.
I plan to make a couple of loafs and pass them on to my friends.

Have made this several times. Mine always came out firm, not crumbly. It's so good and a nice change from the usual bread flavors.
This was definitely more of a cake than a bread. In a loaf pan it was hard to cut slices because it was so crumbly. Also, I added a small can of well-drained crushed pineapple and it was good!
I forgot to add to my previous review that I had also made the coconut loaf with some mini chocolate chips and it was also a winner.
