Coconut Lime Banana Bread

















A few weeks ago I saw a recipe on MyRecipes.com for coconut banana bread. The thought of coconut in my banana bread was quite intriguing. I decided to go ahead and give the recipe a try. I went ahead and used my "go to" banana bread recipe that I always use. I also added some coconut and vanilla to the bread batter. Then I used the coconut, lime glaze from the inspiration recipe. The result was quite tasty. I loved the addition of coconut! The lime flavor was nice also, but pretty tart. If you don't like lime, you can substitute lime juice with water.

Ingredients:
2 cups flour(or use 1 cup wheat, 1 cup white)
1/2 teas. baking powder
1/2 teas. baking soda
1/2 teas. salt
2 eggs
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup sugar
3 medium ripe bananas
1/2 cup flaked coconut

Glaze:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 & 1/2 tablespoons 1ime juice(add more if needed)
1 tablespoon coconut

Preheat oven to 325

Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. Then mix or beat together eggs, applesauce, butter, vanilla and sugar. Add mashed bananas to the wet ingredients and mix well (I just throw the whole bananas into my kitchen aid mixer with the rest of the wet ingredients and beat, leaving it still a little lumpy). Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix. Fold in coconut.

Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake at 325 for about 70-75 minutes. Mix glaze ingredients together and add to the top of warm bread.
