Coconut Bread

This is one of those recipes that I have to get out of the house and give to other people as quickly as possible.  We had a little piece at home and then I took it to work where my coworkers devoured it and asked for the recipe.

Coconut Bread

2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tbsp coconut extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup sweetened coconut

Coconut Syrup:
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp butter
1/4 cup water
1 tsp coconut extract

Preheat the oven to 325F.  Grease a 9x5" baking pan.  In a bowl, mix together the eggs, sugar, oil and coconut extract.  In another bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Add the buttermilk to the dry mix, then stir in the egg mixture.  Add the coconut and stir in.  Pour the mixture into the greased pan.  Bake until a tester in the center comes out clean - about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

When the bread is almost finished, combine the sugar, butter and water in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil.  Boil for 5 minutes, remove from heat and stir in the coconut extract.  Pour the syrup over the hot bread.
