Tahitian Coconut Bread

2 cups fresh grated coconut
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups water
2 tsp baking powder
4 cups flour

Combine coconut, sugar and water. Blend flour and baking powder together. Mix all ingredients to a doughy texture, adding a little flour as needed so it is not too sticky. Separate into 5 equal parts and roll into the size of a hot dog bun. Wrap in aluminum foil and bake at 350* for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Makes 5 loaves.

We got this recipe at the Hawaiian Cultural Center when we dropped Kristine off at BYU-Hawaii.

Yeah, and the bread was all the more sweet because we were thinking of how Grandpa Magnusson served his mission in Tahiti many years ago.....
