Banana Coconut Bread

Usually we go through bananas like crazy, but in the last few weeks the banana consumption seems to have slowed in our house.  As a result, I was presented with 3 very ripe bananas the other day...which of course is the perfect number of ripe bananas to make banana bread!

I pulled out my trusty "Company's Coming Muffins and More" cookbook and went to my stand-by banana bread recipe.  But then I saw one for Banana Coconut Bread, and thought maybe I'd try that one.  Ran the idea by my hubby who agreed, and so, Banana Coconut Bread it was! Here is the recipe I used:

2 eggs
Banana Coconut Bread | Addicted to Recipes

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
3 bananas, mashed

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup coconut, medium
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Note - The recipe also called for 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts and 1/2 cup maraschino cherries, cut up.  I had neither on hand at home, so I left them out of the recipe this time. 

Preheat oven to 350F.  Prepare a loaf pan (grease/butter)

Beat eggs until light and frothy.  Add in the sugar and the melted butter.  Mix well.  Add in the banana and mix well.

In a second bowl combine the flour, coconut, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Add to the wet ingredients, stir until mixed.  Pour/spoon into the prepared loaf pan.

Bake for 1 hour or until toothpick comes out clean.  Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes.  Remove from pan, cool and wrap.

VERDICT:
This was a nice change to the everyday banana bread.  A hit with my boys :-)
