I'm Cuckoo For Coconuts

Is it cake?  Is it bread?  Errr.... yes!  Well, who the hell cares - whatever it is it's full of coconutty good stuff.

Coconut Cake Bread

2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon coconut extract
2 eggs
3/4 cup canned coconut milk
1 generous cup packed flake coconut

Heat oven to 350F.  Prepare two 9 x 5 loaf pans.

In a bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.  Set aside.  In another bowl (or mixer), beat together butter and vanilla and coconut extract.  Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition.  Add coconut milk alternately the dry ingredients, beginning and ending with the dry.  Fold in coconut.

Split batter into the two prepared pans.  Bake 45 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in centre comes out clean.  Cool in pan 10 minutes, then turn out onto wire rack to cool completely.
