Sweet Tropical Loaves Recipe

"These pineapple coconut loaves are so good and moist that sometimes I don't even bother to glaze them," shares Sybil Brown from Highland, California. The golden bread gets its tender, cake-like texture from handy boxed cake mix.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1 cup evaporated milk

  • GLAZE:
  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1 to 2 drops coconut extract, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on high for 2 minutes. Stir in coconut.
  • 2. Pour into two greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans. Bake at 325° for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
