Back to baking Sunday: on todays list of goodies was Coconut & Banana Bread two different worlds collided into one. When we were in Maui we stopped at a local joint along the Road to Hana were they had Coconut Bread and it was so yummy. I absolutely LOVE Banana Bread and could eat it all the time, so when I came across this recipe on Pinterest I knew I wanted to try it.
One problem I was having trouble finding one of the ingredients so it kind of got put on the back burner. Finally after searching for a week or so I found what I was looking for at the Fresh Market, I guess that store is going to be good for something.
While the hubbs was at Staff Duty today for his 4 hour shift (I'll take that over 24 hrs any day) I got to baking. This was a first for me making Banana Bread that wasn't from the package, plus giving it a Coconut twist. I was a bit skeptical at first especially because there were a couple ingredients listed but in the directions it didn't say were or when to add them in at. I ended up just tossing them in at the end because after all everything was really just combine in a big bowl then divided in two loaf pans.
Popped in the oven for a hour to bake away they smelled so yummy. When the hubbs came home & asked what I was cooking for dinner he wasn't disappointed at all when I told him what it was. He to loved the Coconut bread we had in Maui.
Fresh out of the oven I gave it a few minutes to cool off before I cut into one of the loafs. I was dying to try it, the smell was amazing and they looked perfect. A nice split down the middle and the grainy look of banana bread in between the slices.
It was a slice of heaven on earth perfection, not totally sinful I mean it has bananas in it. Those are good for you right :)
Stay tuned for next Sundays Sinful Sunday!!!!
