Total Time

Makes

2 loaves

I've received many requests for this recipe. It's easy to make and just a little different from other quick breads I've tried.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons coconut extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, oil, eggs and extract. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to sugar mixture alternately with buttermilk, stirring just until moistened. Fold in coconut and walnuts.
  2. Pour into two greased 8x4-in. loaf pans. Bake at 325° for 60-65 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pans before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
buttermilk
To substitute for each cup of buttermilk, use 1 Tbsp. white vinegar or lemon juice plus enough milk to measure 1 cup. Stir, then let stand 5 min. Or, use 1 cup plain yogurt or 1-3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar plus 1 cup milk.
