Ingredients

  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) of butter (more for greasing the pan)
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 very ripe bananas, mashed until smooth
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • ½ cup dried unsweetened coconut

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease 9×5 inch loaf pan
  2. Mix dry ingredients. Cream the butter and beat the eggs and bananas. Stir this mixture into the dry ingredients; do not mix more than necessary. Gently stir in the vanilla, nuts, and coconut.
  3. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake for 45-60 minutes, until nicely browned. A toothepick inserted into the centre of the read will come out fairly clean when it is done.
  4. Cool on a rack for 15 minutes, lightly brush on some butter on top
