"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.

"I would bake this again if I can find out how to make it less dry. We liked the taste but it was too dry and didn't slice very well. I hope someone give tell me what I did wrong or how to correct the problem."

"I tried this recipe for a Mother's Day get together. It was great! I changed it a little. I added chopped mandarin oranges to the batter and I added rum extract to the glaze instead. Wonderful tropical fun!!"
