Finely shredded coconut adds a sweet crunch to this moist, flavorful bread. Toast a slice for breakfast or serve it chilled along with a main-dish salad for lunch.
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 beaten eggs
- 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (2 to 3 medium bananas)
- 1/3 cup cooking oil
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- One 3 1/2-ounce can flaked coconut, toasted (1 1/2 cups)
Grease a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the center. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the beaten eggs, mashed bananas, oil, milk and vanilla; mix well. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture; stir till just combined. (The batter should be lumpy.) Fold in the toasted coconut.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or till a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan; cool thoroughly on a wire rack. Wrap and store overnight before slicing.
