Heat oven to 350^. Spread coconut on a pan to toast in oven for about 6 minutes- tossing around after 3 minutes.Set aside.
Spray a 9X5-inch loaf pan generously with non stick cooking spray- Sprinkle just a bit of coconut on the bottom, set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl mix the flour,baking soda and salt; set aside.

In your large mixer bowl cream butter and sugar until fluffy and light. Add eggs ,beating well after each addition. Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture alternately with the sour cream- ending with flour mixture.
Mix just to combine(do not over beat)
Fold in pineapple (squeezed dry), and the coconut. Spoon into the prepared pan. Sprinkle top with remaining coconut. Batter will fill the pan -but will not overflow when baked.
Bake for 65-70 minutes. Cover pan 1/2 way through baking time).
