Tamra's Coconut Bread

This is a southern family recipe from my good friend and cooking buddy Tamra. She credits the recipe to her mom, Jan, who was my third grade teacher.

4 eggs (well beaten)
2 c. sugar
1 c. oil
3 tsp. coconut flavoring

3 c. flour
1 t. salt
1/2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder

Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and alternately with 1 cup buttermilk.
2 c. chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)
2 1/2 cups shredded coconut

Pour into bread pans (grease & flour), then bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

5 minutes before the bread gets done, make the following in a saucepan:

1 c. sugar
1/2 c. water
3 T. butter
1 tsp. coconut flavoring
1 tsp. vanilla

**bring to boil over medium heat, cook 5 minutes. Drizzle this mixture over the warm loaves.
