Weekly Update

Late update today.

5095 words written on FG.
4 chapters edited on Nano.
No queries out this week.

Overall, I'm not too disappointed. I got some good words out, and I actually worked 7 days in a row. Yay, me.

And, here's the recipe for Coconut Bread I promised last week. I discovered tonight that it works really well as the base for Berry Shortcake. Too decadent.

Coconut Bread

1/4 cup butter or margarine (softened)
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt1 cup milk
3/4 cup flaked coconut
Additional sugar for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 350 F. Cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg, vanilla and almond extract. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Alternate adding dry ingredients and milk into wet mixture. Once completely mixed, fold in coconut. Pour into greased 9x5 loaf pan. Sprinkle sugar on top (to taste). Bake for 50-55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for ten minutes (at least) before removing from pan to finish cooling. Slice and serve. (Good by itself. Even better with ice cream.)

Enjoy and have a great weekend.
