This Banana Coconut Sweet Bread is incredibly easy to make. It uses coconut in each element to really give it a tropical twist. Enjoy!
This sweet bread recipe is one of our favourites. It’s one I’ve been making for about 15 years. It takes my Mom’s Banana Bread recipe and changes it up a little bit.
The addition of coconut comes from my extreme love of all things coconut. I am a coconut recipe fiend. I can never get enough of it.
I made this recipe for my friend, Kate. She blogs at Food Babbles. I heart her so very much. Kate had to take some time off recently so I knew I wanted to help. If you are in a rush you can hop right on over there to grab the recipe for this Banana Coconut Sweet Bread.
When I think of Kate’s blog I always think of her bread recipes. So I knew I wanted to make some form of bread. My daughter asked me to make some banana bread so one thing lead to another, and this gorgeous bread went into the oven.
I ended up making four different sweet bread recipes the day I made this. There’s something about a cool Fall day that just makes me want to spend the entire day in the kitchen baking up a storm. So that’s exactly what I did. I enjoyed every last minute of it.
That day I made an Apple Streusel Sweet Bread, another version of this coconut bread with different ingredients. Finally I made a plain Banana Bread just for mini-me.
Any time mini-me requests something special for me to bake I try to oblige. I’m sure it would appear to be a pretty cool thing to have a mom be a food blogger. But if you’re like mini-me and tend to be a plain eater it can be sort of annoying. I am always whipping up recipes but rarely make the same thing on a consistent basis. So I had to indulge the poor hooligan.
The house just smelled amazing the day I baked all of them. I was sure with my windows being open that the neighbours would have showed up at my door with plates. Luckily that did not happen. Some days you just don’t want to share.
However I would always being willing to share with my pal, Kate. She’s such a special lady. Good friends are hard to come by in life, so when you make them you cherish them. Kate is a very dear friend and I’m so thrilled to be sharing this recipe over on her blog today. So swing on over to Food Babbles to get the recipe for this Banana Coconut Sweet Bread.
Kate is not only awesome with bread, but she’s also a whiz with pie recipes. Her Deep Dish Banoffee Pie is stunning. She has a spectacular cookie recipe lineup too. Plus you should see her brownie and bar recipes, seriously, the choices are vast and delicious.
I’ll be whipping up more bread recipes soon. I can’t wait to share them with you. If I can tear myself away from shoving them in my face long enough to take photos. That’s the hardest part of food blogging, the waiting to dive in while the photos get taken. It’s like time goes on and on while it’s happening.
