One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.

Coconut Bread

Coconut Bread

Mix 1 cup oil with 2 cups sugar, add 4 eggs one at a time.
Add 2 tsp coconut extract and mix well.
Mix dry ingredients together...3 cups flour, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder,
1/2 tsp baking soda, and 1/2 tsp salt and add to wet ingredients.
Mix well and add 1 cup coconut flakes, 1 cup buttermilk*, and 1 cup
nuts (optional).
Grease pan and fill to just over 1/2 full (makes 2 large loafs or about 5 small).
Bake at 325 for 30-40 minutes.

Glaze for top

Boil for 5 minutes...1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water, 2 Tblsp butter.
Remove from heat and stir in 1 tsp coconut extract.
Pour glaze over bread while still hot.
Remove from pans when completely cooled

*I just added 1 Tblsp vinegar to 1 cup of milk and let
sit for a few minutes to make
buttermilk so I didn't have to buy it
