Banana Bread

January 01, 2006

(Start to finish 1 hour 10 minutes, 10 minutes active)

2 cups all-purpose white flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spices

1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature

1/4 cup coconut milk

1 1/4 cups sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


2 large eggs

4 very ripe bananas, mashed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a standard loaf pan with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spices. Set aside.

In another medium bowl, use an electric mixer to cream the butter, coconut milk, sugar and vanilla. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well between each. Add the flour mixture and mix until just incorporated.

Add the bananas; mix well. Transfer the batter to the loaf pan and bake until firm and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Let cool completely in the pan.

Serves 8 to 10.
