1 cup coconut
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup melted butter

1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup almonds, chopped

Mix egge, oil, sugar, butter, vanilla & coconut extract together. In another bowl mix flour, baking soda, baking powder & salt. Alternate flour mixture with buttermilk, then fold in coconut, chocolate chips and almonds. Pour into two greased and floured loaf pans. Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees. When done put on a rack and poke several holes on top. Fill with coconut glaze. Drizzle with chocolate drizzle.
