In a separate bowl (or the loaf pan) combine: 1/4 cup shredded coconut, 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (or unbleached all-purpose flour), 1 teaspoon baking powder, & 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add the flour/dry ingredients to the main bowl with wet ingredients and lightly fold/mix about 4-6 folds/stirs (do not over mix the batter) then pour/scrape into the loaf pan and allow it to naturally mix as it settles into the pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 mins to an hour in a pre-heated oven until the top is browned and a toothpick or knife test for the center comes out clean. Tip: You can mix the flour & some of the dry ingredients in a non-stick loaf pan before adding it into the bowl with the wet ingredients and that will leave a light flour coating to keep the bread from sticking to the sides.
