 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      c             flour
    1      tsp           salt
    1      c             sugar
    1      c             evaporated milk
      1/2  c             unsalted butter -- melted and cooled
    1      tbsp          baking powder
    2      c             finely grated fresh coconut
    1      large         egg -- well beaten
    1      tsp           vanilla
                         sugar
 
 Sift flour, baking powder and salt.  Stir in coconut.  Combine egg, milk, vanil
 la and 
 butter.  Make a well in the dry ingredients.  Pour liquid into the well.  Stir 
 lightly but
 thoroughly and pour into 2 greased 8 or 9 inch loaf pans, filling pans about 2/
 3 full.
 Sprinkle the top of the batter with sugar.  Bake at 350 F for about 55 minutes 
 or
 until they test done.
 
 Notes:
 I have used packaged coconut instead of the fresh but found a little more liqui
 d was 
 needed.  Also the flavor was not quite as good but still passable.
 
 Nice toasted for breakfast but watch since it burns easily.
