This recipe was given to me by my friend in Michigan, she said she got it from her friend who got it from a neighbor.
I tasted this recipe and it is so tender and moist and has just the right bite of lemon and chewy coconut.I tripled the recipe and baked it in 3 8-inch cake pans and filled it with lemon curd. You can use other fillings using the layers too. But this is the basic recipe.
In a large mixing bowl cream butter, sugar and lemon juice. Add eggs, one at a time,beating well after each.
Combine flour,baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk.
Stir in the coconut and lemon peel.
Pour into a greased 8x4-inch loaf pan that has been sprayed well. Bake in 350^ oven for 60-70 minutes- I always test with a toothpick. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan to a wire rack.
Combine powdered sugar and lemon juice and brush over loaf.
