1/2 tsp baking soda

Icing
1/4 cup to 1/2 cup icing sugar
1 tbsp milk or as needed
1/4 cup toasted shredded coconut

Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In another bowl, add eggs and vanilla and beat until frothy about 3 minutes. Add the sugar to the eggs and beat until combined for another 2 minutes. Add the oil, butter, and milk to the egg mixture and beat for a minute. Add the dry ingredients and mix gently. Fold in the coconut to the batter. 

Pour the batter into 4 greased mini loaf pans (4"x2" pans). Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
