Happy New Year friends!  Do you find yourself baking more when the weather is cold?  I do!  Last week I discovered a bag of coconut in my freezer and remembered this wonderful coconut bread recipe that I had not made in a long time.  I decided to whip up a batch and make mini loaves to share with a few neighbors and my visiting teachers.  This coconut bread is really more of a cake with the amazing glaze.  It is sweet and chewy and oh soo good:)  Hope you enjoy!
