Banana, Raspberry and Coconut Bread

A fresh loaf of banana raspberry coconut bread

I am a huge fan of Banana bread, toasted with a small lashing of butter.  So delicious.  So when I came across this recipe for Banana, Raspberry and Coconut bread by the fabulous duo Mums in Real Life from Perth, I knew it would be a winner.  This has such a nice twist to it due to the coconut and then raspberries are just delicious through the bread.  I really suggest you try it and I would love to know what you think!

Banana, Raspberry and Coconut Bread


Go ahead and preheat the oven to 180°C

Ingredients:Ingredients for banana raspberry coconut bread

1 cup plain flour

1/2 cup self-raising flour

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup coconut flakes ( I added a little more!)

1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste

125g butter – melted and cooled

2 eggs – whisked

3 ripe bananas – mash them up nice and good!

2 tbs raspberry jam

Now is the time to grease and line the base and side of a loaf pan with baking paper.

Throw and mix the flour, sugar and coconut in a large bowl. Whisk in butter, vanilla, mashed banana and eggs to flour mix.

Spoon into prepared pan and dollop raspberry jam on the top swirling around.

Bake for 45-50 mins, keep a watch on it as I like the bananas to be a little bit soft personally so tend to cook it a little less than this.

Cool in the pan for a good 20  minutes then turn out onto a wire rack.

I really hope you enjoy the bread!  Happy eating!
