Boys in boxers and t-shirts, girls in jammies, the newspaper, knitting, fresh fruit, hot coffee, and coconut bread.
Delicious coconut bread using a recipe given to me by Kim.
1 cup oil :: 2 cups sugar :: 1 cup buttermilk :: 4 eggs :: 1-2 tsp. coconut extract :: 3 cups flour :: 2 tsp baking powder :: 1/2 tsp baking soda :: 1/2 tsp. salt :: 1 cup pecans (optional) :: 1 cup flaked coconut (optional)
Combine oil, sugar, buttermilk, eggs and coconut extract. Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add dry mixture to first mixture; beat well. Stir in the nuts and coconut. Pour into greased and floured loaf pans: Two 9x5" pans, bake at 350 for 60 minutes.
I actually pour half of the batter into one loaf pan, and then mix the nuts and coconut into the remaining batter for the second loaf. This satisfies those in my family that don't like the coconut or the pecans. Crazies.
Enjoy your Saturday, and the rest of your weekend.
Oh, and hi Peggy! Thanks again.
