1
Preheat oven to 325 degree F.

3
Add 1 egg at a time beating well after each addition.
4
In a small bowl, blend flour, soda and salt.

Begin adding the flour mixture to the wet mixture; alternating with sour cream. Ending with flour mixture.
5
Fold in the zest, coconut, food coloring and lemon extract.
6
Spread batter evenly into prepared bread pan.

Bake for 1 hour and 5 - 10 minutes or until pick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then remove and finish cooking on wire rack.

Make glaze if using:

Whisk the sugar,lemon juice and milk; until desired consistency occurs. May need more cream.

I then spread the glaze over the cooled cake and sprinkled with more coconut.
