Cinnamon is one of my favourite spices so I'm always looking for new recipes using it. I came across this recipe for a cinnamon coconut loaf that just sounded like it would be really good. The recipe said that there would be a nice swirl pattern when the loaf was cut and while that didn't happen for me, the smell was heavenly. The taste was beyond being heavenly!
