Shella- Yes you can definitely avoid the coconut and still get awesome results, and yesss! do send in that teabread to me!!

bindiya January 25, 2008 at 7:41 PM  

Rachel- I think it has some acidic reaction with the soda, which can make the cake rise similiar to an egg,in fact you can omit the egg in this recipe too just add a tbsp. extra of milk.
