"After reading the reviews I made this bread and its excellent. I did bake it in silicon pans and at 325 instead of 350 for a bit longer to not experience the raw middle I saw in a review. It does taste just like a pina colada. REFRESHING! My husband loves it."

"After reading all the reviews, made it several times BUT it is ALWAYS raw in the middle whether using loaf pans or mini loaf pans. Not sure what I'm doing wrong but I end up throwing the raw middle away. It's a shame cause I really like it."

"Based on previous comments about this being a little too sweet, I went ahead and cut the sugar down to 2 c. Only other thing I did differently was make it into muffins rather than a loaf (during Texas summers, the shorter time you have the oven on, the better). This is delicious! Looking forward to making it again very soon!"

"I agree with the person who said it was way to sweet. I used applesauce in place of the oil, so you could cut the sugar in half. I would also put in more coconut flavoring. With a little tweaking,it would be excellent."

"I love Piña Coladas so this recipe intrigued me. It is rich and moist and delicious. I have never used rum or coconut extracts and did have a bit of difficulty finding them. I had to go to two stores. I could taste the coconut and rum and it wasn't overpowering. This recipe is wonderful and would be great to give away as a gift. I actually gave a loaf to my friends and they loved it!"
