Coconut Bread

This recipe is from my sister Jennifer who I think got it from her husband's Nana. It's a very unique quick bread and has a really yummy glaze on the top that reminds me of the sugary outside of an old-fasioned donut.

4 eggs
2 c. sugar
1 c. oil
1/2 t.  baking powder
1 c. coconut
3 c. flour
1 c. buttermilk
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
2 t. coconut extract
1 t. vanilla

Mix together. Pour into two greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. While the bread bakes, mix together the glaze:

1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. water
1 T. butter

Boil glaze for 5 minutes. Add 1/2 t. coconut extract. When loaves come out of the oven, use a knife to loosen bread from the sides of pan. Pour glaze over loaves (while they are still hot and are still in pans). Let cool slightly before slicing.
