Recipe: Coconut Banana BreadPosted: February 21, 2012
I haven’t done a recipe post since the New Year because of all the back-to-back style challenges, so here’s the first recipe of the year, which combines two of my favorite things: banana bread and coconut. Recipe adapted from here.
What You Need:
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 medium overripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup sweetened coconut flakes (or shredded coconut)
1.Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a loaf pan and set aside (I used a 9×9 pan, which worked out fine.)
2. Stir together the mashed bananas, coconut milk, oil, sugar and vanilla. Beat in the eggs, one at a time.
3. Whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Gradually mix the dry ingredients with the wet until just combined. Stir in the coconut flakes.
4. Pour batter into pan (I like a lot of coconut, so I sprinkled some of top as well.) Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Let cool completely before slicing.
