Coconut Banana Bread With Lime Glaze

We love banana bread at our house, along with coconut and anything with lime! So I think this is my favorite banana bread recipe by far! The glaze is soooo yummy!It's from Heather's ward cookbook, but I tweaked it just a tad.

2 c flour
3/4 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/4 c butter, softened
1 c sugar
2 eggs
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 c apple juice
1/4 c sour cream
1/2 t vanilla
1/2 c flaked sweetened coconut
2 T flaked sweetened coconut

1/2 c powdered sugar
1 1/2 T FRESH lime juice

-Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in bowl. Set aside. In your mixer bowl beat butter and sugar until blended. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add banana, sour cream, apple juice and vanilla. Beat until blended. Add flour mixture; beat at low speed just until moist. Fold in 1/2 c coconut. Pour batter into a greased 9x5 inch loaf pan; sprinkle with 2 T coconut. Bake at 350 for one hour or until toothpick comes out clean.
-Cool 10 minutes, then remove from pan. Combine powdered sugar and lime juice, stirring with whisk. Drizzle over warm bread. This is extra moist if you let it sit and eat the next day! Freezes well.
