  • 1 loaf Rhodes White Bread Loaf or 10-12 rolls, thawed yet still cold
  • 1/3 c. softened butter
  • 1/4 c. granulated sugar
  • 1/4 c. unsweetened coconut
  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • 2/3 c. chopped pecans

Lemon Glaze

  • 1 tbsp. melted butter
  • 1/4 c. fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1-2 c. powdered sugar (depending on desired consistency


  1. Roll loaf into a 12x16 rectangle.   

  2. Spread evenly with 1/3 c. softened butter. Sprinkle dough evenly with granulated sugar and coconut followed by lemon zest. Lastly sprinkle with chopped pecans.

  3. Using a serrated knife or pizza cutter, cut dough in to even strips about 2 inches wide. Carefully top one on top of another until they are all stacked. Cut strips into squares. Squish each section of squares together in a loaf pan. Cover and let rise until almost double.

  4.  Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes. Cover with foil the last 10 minutes if browning too quickly. Cool in pan for a few minutes, loosen edges and then transfer to cool on baking rack.

  5. For the glaze, in a small bowl mix together your lemon juice, melted butter, and powdered sugar. Drizzle the desired amount on top of the cooled loaf and reserve about 1/4 for individual servings.
