{Coconut Banana Bread with Lime Glaze}

This bread is super yummy, and a nice switch up from your traditional banana bread recipes.


2 Cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 Cup sugar
4 Tbs butter, softened
2 large eggs
1 1/2 Cups mashed ripe bananas (about 4 large bananas)
1/4 Cup sour cream
3 Tbs milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 C coconut
optional:1/2 teaspoon coconut extract


1/2 C powdered sugar
1 1/2 Tbs fresh lime juice
Zest from one lime (optional)

Whisk all together in a bowl.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt together and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until blended.  Add eggs and beat to combine.  Add banana, sour cream, milk, and vanilla.  Beat until blended.
Add flour mixture and beat at a low speed until just combined.  Stir in 1/2 C coconut.

Pour batter into a 9×5″ loaf pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.  Sprinkle additional 2 Tbs coconut on top.

Bake in the oven for about 1 hour or until a knife or skewer inserted in center comes out clean.

Check bread after about 40 minutes.  If the top has browned and the coconut pieces are looking toasty, cover top of bread lightly with a piece of foil.  Continue baking until done.

When done, remove pan from oven.  Let cool on a cooling rack for about 10 minutes and then carefully remove from pan.  Whisk powdered sugar and lime juice together for the glaze and then drizzle over top.    Cool for another 15 minutes before slicing.
