  • MAKE-AHEAD
  • VEGETARIAN

This not-too-sweet quick bread is jam-packed with vegetables and an irresistible toasted-coconut topping.

  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  3. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  4. 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  5. 2 large eggs, beaten
  6. 1/2 cup canola oil
  7. 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  8. 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  9. 2 large carrots, grated on the large holes of a box grater (1 packed cup)
  10. 1 medium zucchini, grated on the large holes of a box grater (1 packed cup)
  11. 1 1/4 cups shredded sweetened coconut
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°. Spray an 8-by-4-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour with the baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with the canola oil and both sugars until smooth. Stir in the carrots, zucchini and 3/4 cup of the shredded coconut, then fold in the dry ingredients just until combined.
  3. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of coconut. Loosely tent the pan with foil and bake for about 1 hour and 30 minutes, until the top is golden brown and a tester inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Transfer the bread to a rack to cool for 30 minutes, then turn it out and let cool completely.
Make Ahead The bread can be wrapped and kept at room temperature for up to 2 days.
