Coconut Cinnamon Bread November 19 2012

It is raining. Really raining. Coming down in buckets as they say. What better way to hide from the rain than baking bread? This recipe is great because it includes optional substitutions. Why is that great? Because it's raining and you don't want to run to the market! Fortunately I had plenty of our Coconut Breeze Sugar on hand. Ready, set, yum!
