Chocolate Chip Coconut Bread

My Mom-in-law makes the most deeelish coconut bread ever. Today I made a variation of it with some chocolate chips and walnuts. Hubby didn't think it sounded it good...but I told him it would be kinda like an Almond Joy in bread form and he opened up to the idea :)
And it came out as good as I hoped. Nom!

Chocolate Chip Coconut Bread
Makes 1 large loaf or 4 mini loaves

  • 2 eggs
  • 1c sugar
  • 1/2c oil
  • 1tsp coconut extract
  • 1-1/2c flour
  • 1/4tsp baking powder
  • 1/4tsp baking soda
  • 1/4tsp salt
  • 1/2c buttermilk
  • 1/2c sweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/2c walnuts
  • 1/2c chocolate chips
  • 1/4c sugar
  • 2T water
  • 1T butter
  • 1/2T coconut extract


Preheat oven to 350F. Grease pan(s) and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, oil and coconut extract. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Add the dry mixture and buttermilk to the wet mix, alternating between the two (start and end with the flour mixture). Then fold in the coconut, walnuts and chocolate chips. Fill pans 3/4 full and bake.
For mini pans: 25-30 minutes.
For a large loaf: about 45 minutes.

While that is baking, make the glaze. In a small saucepan on med-high heat, mix together the sugar, water and butter. Let that boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add the coconut extract. Pour this over the loaves while they are still hot.
