Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed and risen (Rhodes)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 14 cup flaked coconut, packed
  • 14 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon pecans, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sugar crystals (optional)
  • additional coconut (optional)
  • cooking spray


  1. Flatten loaf into a 7x11 rectangle.
  2. Sprinkle with sugar, coconut, chocolate chips and pecans to within 1/2 inch of the edges.
  3. Roll up tightly, jelly roll style, starting with a short end, being careful not to stretch the dough.
  4. Sprinkle sugar crystals and additional coconut over loaf if desired.
  5. Place loaf, seam side down, in a 9x5 bread pan coated with cooking spray.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until 1-inch over top of pan.
  7. While bread is rising, preheat oven to 350°F.
  8. Remove wrap and bake for 35 minutes. To prevent over browning, cover with foil during the last 10 minutes of baking, if necessary.
