I don’t make banana bread that often, but there were four bananas sitting there getting closer and closer to the point of no return. So I made a variation on this recipe (I used more bananas and didn’t glaze it). I generally like banana bread with walnuts but this was a nice change of pace. Tasty! Will be amazing with the glaze. If I get to that before it gets eaten entirely that is…

Banana Bread with Coconut
(one loaf)

2 cups all-purpose flour (about 9 ounces)
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
4 ripe bananas
1/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt
3 tablespoons dark rum
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup flaked sweetened coconut

1 tablespoon flaked sweetened coconut
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime or lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350. Grease loaf pan with butter. Mix butter and sugar til creamy. Add in yogurt, rum, eggs, vanilla, and bananas. Mix well. Add in coconut and mix gently. Add flour baking soda and salt mix around dry ingredients in top, then mix with beaters. (I don’t like to mix the dry ingredients separately so i do it this way and it seems to work ok).

Turn mix out into pan. Sprinkle coconut on top. Bake for 60 minutes or until toothpick comes out cleanish.

I haven’t put the glaze on it yet. But it sounds good! This baked up fantastic!
