More baking – Chocolate Banana Coconut Bread


After my recent dry spell I’ve been doing a lot of baking once again. Last week I made this scrumptious loaf. Kikimiss highly recommended the recipe which can be found here. Firstly it’s incredibly easy to make, you really just stir everything together, no beating, whipping or processing required & then place in the oven for a good hour or so while you watch it rise & smell the delicious aroma of fresh baking fill the house. Secondly its really fabulous, I love banana bread with chocolate thrown in & the added coconut gives it a fantastic texture & added depth of flavour. Being me I had to tuck into it while it was still warm & it was nice but I wouldn’t rave about it, however when it cooled down completely I just adored it. This is strange for me as I usually find these sorts of cakes/breads taste better while warm. Lastly I didn’t bother with the cream cheese as suggested but feel free to give it a go, I don’t think it needed it at all. Bake away & enjoy

Yahoo, you're back!! I'm so glad you baked this bread and didn't dismiss it upon first tastings. I know what you mean about eating breads warm, in fact..anything out of the oven. Yum.

Reading this tonight you've reminded me I need to bake this again. Very, very soon.

Hi Ange, I thin easy peasy is always the best for every day baking - cause who wants to spend hours in the kitchen? Looks great.

I have given you an award:
