“This coconut loaf is traditionally served as breakfast with Caribbean Buljol. It is a quick and easy bread, that goes well with tropical jams like guava, passion fruit, or mango. The recipe calls for fresh coconut, but frozen could easily be substituted. "To open a coconut, pierce the eyes with an ice pick, pour out the liquid. Break coconut open with a hammer and pry out meat then scrape off the brown skin. Chop or grate meat with your hand or in a processor." From for ZWT9”
