  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray a loaf pan with non-stick spray, and line it with parchment paper. Set the pan aside.
  • In one large bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, granulated sugar and light brown sugar. Mix well. 
  • In another large bowl combine shortening, bananas, eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1 teaspoon coconut extract. Mix well.
  • Pour your wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix until combined. 
  • Transfer mixture to lined loaf pan. 
  • Place loaf pan in the oven and bake for about 45 to 55 minutes. The bread should be golden brown. If you insert a toothpick into the loaf it should come out clean. 
  • Remove from oven and place pan on a cooling rack for 15 to 20 minutes. 
  • Make the glaze: In a medium-sized bowl combine confectioners' sugar and heavy cream. Add the coconut extract. Whisk until it comes together. 
  • Pour the coconut glaze over the bread. 
  • Sprinkle with shredded coconut.
  • Slice bread. 
  • Serve with a big old banana-coconut loving smile!
