Coconut Crunch Bread


the first time i ever tried this recipe i went ‘COCONUTS’ over it!  it’s so de-lish it beat out zucchini bread as my new favorite bread.   (and i LOVE zucchini bread)

i had a friend ask for the recipe this morning and i figured you guys might want it as well?   it’s not a main dish but serve it with a side of protein filled eggs and bacon, then voila! dinner is served.  🙂

Coconut Crunch Bread

4 eggs

2 cups sugar

1 cup oil

2 tsp coconut flavoring

3 cups flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup buttermilk (you can make your own by using 1 cup milk with 1 tsp lemon juice: let stand 5 min.)

1 cup coconut

1 cup coarsely chopped nuts (optional)

blend eggs, sugar, oil and flavoring.    sift flour, salt, powder and soda together and blend in wet ingredients.   add buttermilk, then coconut and nuts.

grease 3 medium bread pans or one bundt pan.

bake at 350 for around 40min.   with 5min. of cooking time left, mix the following topping together in a saucepan:

2 TBSP butter-let melt, then add

1/2 cup water

1 cup sugar

1 tsp coconut flavoring

when sugar is dissolved and the glaze looks clear, spoon it over the hot bread from the oven.  i usually poke the loaves with a fork or knife several times so there are holes for the glaze to drizzle down in.  it’s so yum you’ll just grab a fork and start eating right out of the bread pan!
