Eggless Lemon Coconut Bread

For this month's Baking eggless group ,the recipe given was Lemon coconut bread .I have not tried any lemon flavoured cake in my baking and decided to make a small loaf cake.The flavour is quite interesting with the lemon and coconut combination.I have used condensed milk as egg replacer here and the cake turned out soft and moist.
