Recipe: Banana Coconut Loaf

Decided to make something coconut because mummy loves coconut and she really really liked the coconut puffs that I made for her 2 days ago! :) So I decided to combine her 2 favourite ingredients- banana and coconut to make this! :)


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed (3/4 cup)
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    3/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut


  • Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 180 C.
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
  • Whisk together bananas, butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, and 1/2 cup coconut in a large bowl until combined well, then fold in flour mixture until flour is just moistened.
  • Divide batter among lined muffin cups or loaf tin and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup coconut.
  • Bake until muffins/loaf are puffed and golden, about 25 minutes.
  • Allow muffins/loaf to cool slightly before cutting and serving!
