Method

60 min
 

Set oven to 180 degrees C and spray cook a loaf tin, with a piece of baking/parchment paper on the base of the tin and allow it to be long enough to come up to the edges. This makes it easier to remove when the tin and the loaf is fresh out the oven and very hot. 
Whisk/sieve together the baking powder, flour and salt. 
Whisk together in a mixer, the sugar and butter, after the mixture becomes light and fluffy add the zest. 
Once it's all combined,  scrape down the edges, and add the eggs one by one. 
Then add the vanilla pod. 
Finally add the flour mixture, in three sections, and alternate with the coconut cream (whipping cream and coconut milk)
Finally, fold in the desiccated coconut. 
Now add the batter to the prepared loaf tin, and bake for about 45-60 minutes. If the top browns too quickly then you can put some baking paper on top. 
For the glaze:
Whisk together the coconut cream, and sugar.
Keep adding the coconut cream until you get to a pourable consistency. 
The glaze will take about 25 minutes to set.
