Banana Bread

Serves: 10

Time: 1 hour


125 g unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 1/2 cups coconut sugar

2 eggs

2 cups ripe mashed banana

1 ts vanilla extract or 1/4 ts vanilla bean powder

2 cups plain flour (I used spelt wholemeal)

1 ts bi-carb soda

1/2 ts salt

1/2 ts ground cinnamon

1/2 ts allspice

1/2 cup of buttermilk

1/2 cup of desiccated coconut


Grease and line your muffin or bread loaf tin.

Cream the butter and sugar in your kitchen mixer or electric beater until light and fluffy and pale in colour.

Add in eggs and beat to combine, add banana and vanilla also.

Sift dry ingredients and add to mixture, alternating with buttermilk in small batches. Mix until combined but don't over mix as it will not be as moist and fluffy.

Transfer mixture to your prepared tin and sprinkle coconut on top. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes depending on your oven, to test if it's cooked insert a skewer and if it comes out clean you're ready to go!

Cool on a rack and try not to eat it all in one go.......


I keep one banana whole to put on the top before baking, but this is optional. I find the bread stays moist for longer in doing this.

You can substitute this for 1/2 cup of milk with a big squeeze of lemon juice is you dot have buttermilk.

Muffins are great to freeze to have on hand as a snack, or double the recipe and freeze a loaf for another time.
