[recipe] Coconut Banana Bread - 椰子香蕉面包

Today we will be having banana bread that is made with ripe bananas that are sweet and fragrant together with coconut oil and fresh shredded coconut that add in strong coconut flavour without overpowering the taste of the bananas. We love the moist and soft interior of the cake with a slight crisp top that is covered with lightly burnt shredded coconut that adds extra bits for a perfect breakfast or tea choice.


Coconut Banana Bread
This quick bread is very easy to prepare; all you need is to add everything into the mixing bowl, mix well and off it goes into the oven for a good 60 minutes or more depending on the oven temperature. I still remember the wonderful aroma of the banana bread baking in the kitchen while drafting this post and I will definitely bake this again soon to rotate into our weekly breakfast menu.

Oh ya, sorry for the slices above as it might looks a bit crumbs because we can't wait for the cake to cool down completely before cutting it. Overall the texture of the bread is soft and kind of cross between muffin and cake plus the shredded coconut also helps to boost up the taste of each bite.
