Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking powder and salt for 20 seconds, set aside. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment blend together butter and sugar then mix in vegetable oil.

Mix in another 1/3 of the flour mixture followed by remaining 1/2 of the coconut milk. Mix in last 1/3 of the flour, fold batter with a rubber spatula to ensure it's evenly incorporated. Spray donut pans with non-stick baking spray. Transfer batter to a gallon size resealable bag. Cut a small corner from bag and pipe batter into donut pans, coming about 1/3-inch from the top. Bake in preheated oven until donuts are set, about 8 - 11 minutes. Let cool in pan for about 3 minutes then invert onto a wire rack to cool. For the glaze, in a medium mixing bowl whisk together powdered sugar, milk, butter and coconut extract until smooth. Place coconut in a bowl. Dip cooled donuts in glaze then let excess run off and dip glazed portion in coconut. Return to wire rack to let glaze set. Store donuts in an airtight container at room temperature.
