One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.

Pumpkin Coconut Bread

This came from my awesome & 1999/2000 "BYU Academy of LDS Dentists Spouses Organization Cookbook" so they are fellow dental wives/DDSs/RDHs who love to cook/eat. The original credit of this recipe goes to Anne Chambers & Lucy Yorgason. I made this last night & I will say this: Wow & thank you, Anne & Lucy! 

This was the only thing I needed to buy - the coconut pudding mix.... And I didn't get a picture of the bread because... um, well I can't get close enough to take a picture without eating the little that remains on my counter.... maybe next time?

Beat Together:
1.5 C oil (I used a combo of coconut & canola oil & I'll use less than 1.5 C next time)
5 eggs

stir in:  
2 C pumpkin puree  (the other 1/2 of the 28oz can that you didn't use making Steph's cookies)

sift together & add:
2 C flour (I used a little bit of white whole wheat & mostly white flour)
2 C sugar (I used more like 1.5-1.75C sugar & will use a little less next time)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg     (does it smell like fall yet?)
1 tsp baking soda

stir in:
2 (3 oz) pkgs coconut pudding/pie filling mix (the kind that you need to cook - I accidentally bought one box instant & one box cook, but it still worked, so don't panic if you buy the wrong stuff)
1 C chopped nuts (optional & I left them out but it would be awesome with walnuts or pecans)

Bake @ 350˚F in 2 greased loaf pans for about 1 hour. Mine took a little longer, the middle was raw for a while - just keep checking it.
