ANNOUNCING: Change is part of life, and apparently, it's part of blogging, too. As of September 5, 2013, I'm merging The Virtual Goody Plate with Disco Mom Takes on the World and whatever else may henceforth spill from my fingertips (and kitchen), into one great new blog. I hope you'll join me there in exclaiming, "THIS IS AWESOMELAND."

Bread Week #3 Coconut Bread

This was one of my favorite contenders at Dessert Club. Rich, sweet, and very coconutty - how could it not be with all that extract? Mmm... A wonderful loaf for breakfast, teatime, or to take a friend for any occasion.

Coconut Bread
(print recipe)
4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
2 tsp coconut extract
1 cup buttermilk or sour milk
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 325. Mix first five ingredients together. Add dry ingredients. Fold in coconut and nuts. Line two 8x4 loaf pans with parchment or spray with cooking spray. Bake for about 1 hour. Remove bread from oven and poke holes in the top with a fork.

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
2 T butter
1 tsp coconut extract

Put ingredients in saucepan and warm up to, but not quite to, a boil and spoon over cooked bread.
