pinch salt
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
½ cup buttermilk
½ cup shredded coconut

8. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean, and try to catch it early so its not dry, about 20 min
9. To make the sauce, in a saucepan, mix the chocolate, sugar and water on med heat until it comes to a boil
10. Let boil about 2 min and then add the cream, vanilla and cayenne pepper
11. Boil another minute or so until it thickens
12. Strain through a strainer and let cool
13. Pour over slices and add raspberries as a garnish

Rating: 4.5 strawberries
Notes: All of these together with raspberries is a killer dish! The bread itself is a little dry, and I might make the sauce a little more spicy, but it is so coconuty and good. You have to try it. This is actually a nice cake base too. I might use it again for some other desserts. I made this after a long day of sitting in the sun, and buying a new bike!!! I ate no carbs all day oddly enough, and so I thought making a bread would be a good idea. I have a list of recipe ideas in case I get stumped, and I found this idea on there. I am so glad I made that list! I hope you guys like this.
