Coconut Bread

Brandon's mom makes this yummy bread for her neighbors every Christmas. A little bit different and delicious!

-Mom Roberts

2 c. sugar
1 c. butter
4 eggs
1 T. coconut flavoring
1 c. Buttermilk
1 c. coconut flakes
1 c. chopped pecans (optional - I didn't use)

Cream butter, sugar, add eggs, flavoring, buttermilk, coconut flakes, and nuts.

Blend in:
3 c. flour
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder

Bake in two greased and floured loaf pans @ 325 for approx. 40 min. (mine took 55 minutes in two 9" loaf pans).


1 1/2 c. sugar
3 T. butter
1/3 c. water
1 t. coconut flavoring

Bring to sugar, butter and water boil. Remove from heat and stir in flavoring. Let bread cool for 5 min. Poke holes in it with a skewer, pour glaze over each loaf, while still in pans.

Let set 5 min. Remove from pans, place on cooling rack. Pour additional glaze over them.
