  • 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 2 bananas mashed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp coconut extract
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 tsp coconut extract
  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Spray a loaf pan with non-stick spray, and line it with parchment paper. Set the pan aside.

  3. In one large bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, granulated sugar and light brown sugar. Mix well.
