Coconut Banana Bread with Lime Glaze

2 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cups sugar
4 Tbsp butter, softened
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 4 large bananas)
1/4 cup sour cream
3 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut
plus an additional:
2 Tbsp  coconut
1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp lime juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt together and set aside.  In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until blended. Add eggs and beat to combine. Add banana, sour cream, milk, and vanilla. Beat until blended.  Add flour mixture and beat at a low speed until just combined. Stir in 1/2 cup coconut.  Pour batter into a greased 9×5 loaf pan. Sprinkle additional 2 Tbs coconut on top.  Bake in the oven for about 1 hour or until a knife or skewer inserted in center comes out clean.  Note: Check bread after about 40 minutes. If the top has browned and the coconut pieces are looking toasty, cover top of bread lightly with a piece of foil. Continue baking until done.  When done, remove from oven. Let cool on a cooling rack for about 10 minutes, then carefully remove from pan. Prepare glaze by whisking powdered sugar and lime juice together in a small bowl.  Drizzle over top of loaf. Cool for another 15 minutes before slicing.
