Mix the ingredients in separate bowls following the groupings above.
Combine group 1 and 2 into a larger bowl and mix thoroughly. Add group 3 last and mix thoroughly. Fill greased and floured loaf pan. Bake cake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until inserted knife comes out clean.
Mix rum, sugar and melted butter in a pan until dissolved. Just barely boil the rum until the sugar dissolves as not to boil off all the alcohol. If using water, mix the ingredients and boil until sugar dissolves. Add in coconut flavoring last.
With a toothpick, poke small holes in the top of the cake. Pour the hot glaze over the top of the warm cake while still in the pan. The glaze will ooze down around the cake and soak into the cake from the top, and sides. Cool and remove carefully.
