Banana Coconut Bread

I found a great recipe for delicious banana bread on Simple Recipes. This is a blog where all the recipes are tested by Elise Bauer. She was kind enough to allow me to use her recipe. Check out her blog, you won’t be disappointed. The banana bread came out moist and delicious. I found when baking it’s best to follow the recipes exactly but you can add to them or change certain things. I added a cup of coconut.


3 or 4 ripe bananas
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg beaten
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 ½ cups of flour
1 cup coconut


Helpful Hints

Preheat the oven to 350 and make sure you have all your ingredients at the ready. Instead of coconut try other ingredients to mix into the banana bread – pecans, chocolate chips, cashews, etc.

Like with any recipe don’t be afraid to make it your own. And always remember to have fun in the kitchen.

  1. This is just delightful! I didn't change a thing, followed exactly what you've posted. TWO THUMBS UP! I also found excellent recipes like Bananes flambees au rhum caramel moelleux at Gourmandia.

  2. Hi Nadine, I wanted to hear your voice again. I read your other blog and then clicked on your cooking blog. You've still got it! Great cooking show, all the way from PEI. <3 Donna F.
