Coconut Bread

My Grandma gave this recipe to us a few years ago. It is so moist and good!! We love it! I think I will make some right now!

4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. coconut extract
½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Spray 3 small loaf pans with PAM. Beat eggs, then cream in the sugar, oil and coconut extract. Add flour and dry ingredients. Then add milk, coconut flakes and nuts (if desired). Beat well. This makes 3 small loaves. Bake for 45 minutes at 325°. (If you care to make one tube cake, bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes.) Loaves will be golden brown and cracked on the top.

Glaze

1 cup sugar
½ cup water
2 Tbsp. Margarine or butter
1 tsp coconut extract

Bring all ingredients except coconut extract to a boil and boil for 5 minutes stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add 1 tsp. coconut extract.

While the loaves are still warm (fresh from the oven) pour glaze over each loaf. Let them stand 4 hours. The glaze will be completely absorbed into the loaf and will leave the pan easily.
