A Banana & Coconut Loaf


When I see potential ingredients waiting to be used, I don’t hang about! I had to turn a couple of lonely ripened bananas into something more yummy. Then the ideas started flowing and I decided on a banana loaf with coconut. Quick, satisfying and a sweet comfort on this winter morning that looks like spring time but is still holding onto the winter temperatures!


I distributed most of it amongst some friends, I hope they enjoyed it! It’s great that it’s low in fat and the moisture and decadence comes from the lush bananas. Do let me know how you like it. Have a wonderful day, much love D x


150g sugar
2 large ripe bananas mashed
40g desiccated coconut
50g butter
2 eggs
180g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder


Preheat oven to 180°c, line and grease a loaf tin

Cream together the sugar and butter in a food processor,  then add in the mashed banana.  Combine well into the mixture

Whizz in the eggs then fold in the flour, baking powder and coconut



Pour the mixture into the loaf tin and bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the bread



Once done, slice snd serve warm with some creamy butter

  1. Delish! Love the banana-coconut combination. I recently returned from a trip to Portugal, where they were using coconut in all sorts of desserts. Yesterday I made fig and coconut bars. I’m a bit addicted!
