Easy Coconut Bread

I had never eaten "Coconut Bread" until I made this recipe. I can't tell you how upset I felt that I had waited my entire life, all....."29 years" of it (you thought I was going to confess my real age didn't you?) before I finally broke down and mixed this little "dream" up!  I had seen recipes for Coconut Bread for years (in my hunt for new recipes to make)...but always shied away from making it because it just "didn't sound that good"....WOW, was I so wrong! Its mana from heaven, I am sure of it!...Guess I better get making some more!

Easy Coconut Bread

8 eggs, beaten
4 c. sugar
2 c. oil
4 t. coconut extract
6 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
2 c. buttermilk
2 c. coconut

Combine ALL ingredients and mix well. Pour batter into 4 regular sized, well greased and floured, bread pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes. 

*Start checking the bread at 45 minutes, when you insert a toothpick and it comes out clean, your bread is done. Don't over cook or it will be dry. 
*These freeze well so don't shy away from making the entire batch....but if you must (you will regret it, I am sure of it) you can make 1/2 of the batch and get 2 loafs. 

Happy Cooking~
