This bread is great. I made one without the coconut & one with. I think i like the plain. I used 1/2 stevia 1/2 sugar. I omitted the salt cause I`m really watching the sodium. I didn`t use the glaze. Our guests, Gary & LInda liked it too!

This is moist and fabulous! This will be a regular recipe for me. I didn't even put on the glaze. It was delicious without it. I may try the glaze though when I make this recipe using a bundt cake pan.

This is an excellent recipe! I used half white and half whole wheat flour and it worked great. I also do not glaze the bread as it is sweet enough without glaze!
