This is what I took to my neighbors this year for Christmas.

2 C white sugar
1 C canola oil
4 eggs
2 tsp coconut extract
3 C flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 C buttermilk
1 C shredded coconut

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour 2 9x5 loaf pans.

In large bowl, beat together sugar and oil. Beat in eggs and coconut extract. In separate bowl, sift together flour, salt, powder, and soda. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture, alternating with buttermilk and coconut.

Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes until toothpick inserted int he middle comes out clean.

1 C sugar
1/2 C water
2 T butter
1 tsp coconut extract
1 C shredded coconut, toasted

Combine sugar, water and butter in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add coconut flavoring. Pour 1/2 of the glaze mixture over the bread while still warm. Top each loaf with shredded, toasted coconut, then pour over the remaining glaze. Let sit in the pan for 4 hours.
