Coconut Bread

I heart coconut very much! I enjoy making quick breads, but usually they are of the banana/zucchini/pumpkin variety. (No... not all three together!) I'm not sure where the recipe came from, though. I found it sitting in my baked goods file in the kitchen. Who knows how long it had been sitting there, but when I found it last week I knew I had to make it! It was delicious and not overly sweet. It didn't last long... maybe about 24 hours! That's a tad embarrassing to admit considering it was only me and a 3 year old eating it! Well... I did cut the recipe in half and I gave 2 pieces away, so I didn't eat ALL of it! :)

Coconut Bread

3 cups AP flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

2 cups sugar

1 cup vegetable oil

4 eggs, lightly beaten

2 tsp coconut extract

1 cup buttermilk

1 cup shredded sweetened coconut

Preheat oven to 325. Grease and flour 2 loaf pans. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Mix well. Combine sugar, oil, eggs, and coconut extract in another bowl by hand. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture alternately with the buttermilk stirring just until moist. Stir in coconut. Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour.

Sounds delicious! A little scary when good stuff like that mysteriously disappears eh?! :)
