Coconut Almond Bread

The recipe calls for:
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup stevia
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup milk
3/4 cup shredded coconut
sugar to sprinkle

-- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
-- In a large bowl mix together the butter and sugar until it is creamy.  Beat in the egg and extracts.
-- Combine the flour, baking powder and salt.  Add the mixed ingredients and milk slowly to the creamy mixture.  Mix well.
-- Fold in the shredded coconut.
-- Pour the batter into a greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.  Sprinkle with sugar.
-- Bake for 50 minutes.

I used some lighter alternatives to make this recipe a little healthier.  Instead of butter I used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and I used 1% milk.  You could also use fat-free milk, but I just used what I had.  I used Stevia in the mixture, but I prefer regular sugar for sprinkling.  I liked it warmed up a little, but it's just as good served at room temperature.
