Coconut Apple Sweetbread

So making deserts and baked goods have been a challenge for me, as baking requires measurements and preciseness, two things I do not do when it comes to cooking. But I have been craving banana breads and sweet cakes to finish off my meals, so I embarked on a journey to find a good recipe. With the help of my sister, I landed on something quite delicious. It is fragrant, delicious and has you coming for more. It is also light, low fat, and a great pair with freshly made nut milk or a warm afternoon tea.FullSizeRender 2
