Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix all dry ingredients together (except fruit)
Mix butter & Shortening into mixture, using fingers, until mixture resembles large bread crumbs
Add fruit to mixture
Use enough liquid to bind mixture together. This could be coconut water, milk or just plain water.
Knead dough for a few minutes. The longer you need the dough, the firmer the bread becomes. Sweet bread is traditionally a firm bread, but some people like it soft & crumbly. The choice is yours.

Fill pan halfway with dough
Place a slender line of coconut filling lengthwise down middle of dough.
Put remaining dough on top
Cut light crisscross pattern on top with a knife for decoration (optional)
