1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut see directions

1/4 cup sugar see directions

3/4 cup sugar see directions

1/2 cup melted margarine

3 eggs

1 teaspoon coconut extract

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup milk


2 tablespoons melted margarine

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon coconut extract

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon milk or cream


1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut toasted



Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 9″x 5″ loaf pan with parchment paper (or lightly grease with margarine).

In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder and salt, and set aside.

Blend 1/2 cup coconut in a food processor along with 1/4 cup of sugar, and set aside. (See notes below)

In the bowl of an electric mixer, blend together the melted margarine and 3/4 cup sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, blending for 10-15 seconds between each egg.

Add the bowl of coconut and sugar that was processed together, and stir until well combined.

Add coconut extract and vanilla extract.

While slowly mixing, add flour mixture and milk in two batches(some flour, then some milk, then the rest of the flour and the rest of the milk). Stop mixing as soon as it’s just combined.

Immediately pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 55-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.

Cool the loaf cake in the pan for about 30 minutes, then move to a wire cooling rack with a baking sheet below (to catch the glaze you’re about to add).

After the cake has baked, leave the oven on, but reduce the temperature to 300°F. Spread 1/2 cup of coconut onto a baking sheet, and bake for 3-4 minutes (watch it closely). Remove from oven to cool.

Prepare the glaze by simply whisking together the glaze ingredients. Depending on how hot the butter was, the glaze may be thin.

Allow to cool a few minutes until the desired consistency is reached, then pour glaze over the loaf cake.

Sprinkle toasted coconut over the top of the cake, allow the glaze to set up a few minutes, then slice and enjoy!
