looking for a sourdough not-too-sweet coconut bread

Hello, I am looking for a coconut bread recipe prepared with a sourdough (or any other pre-ferment). On the net I have found only quick-breads or recipes which are more cakes than breads. Thanks.

If it were me wanting this bread, I would find a recipe for a sourdough nut bread that uses milk. I would substitute coconut for the nuts and coconut milk for the milk. That should give lots of coconut flavor.

I have never heard of coconut bread and while these aren't sourdough, it should be pretty easy to convert with a few experiments. They are yeasted and seem to have varying levels of sweetness.

Many thanks MangoChutney and clazar123. As a beginner I'll have to experiment with both of your suggestions.
