BANANA & COCONUT LOAF


I was on  a verge of baking a banana cake unfortunately I don't have any more milk. So the best option was to make use coconut milk found in my pantry.

Had use a pack of 200ml coconut milk and top up with water to make up a cup. You can find  coconut milk in an aisle of supermarket displaying Asian goods or else pick up a can of coconut cream.

Before adding more sugar to the batter, kindly check how sweet your banana was but for me half a cup of sugar was just right.

Really impressed that   the addition of coconut milk makes  this loaf  deliciously tropical , super moist and beautifully sliced.  Highly recommended to bake a batch this weekend!

BANANA & COCONUT LOAF
Yield   :  9 in loaf

1 1/4  C self rising flour
1/4 C plus 1 tablespoon cornflour
1/2 -3/4 C brown sugar
1 C mashed banana
1 C coconut milk
1/4 C melted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract



METHOD

Preheat oven @ 175C and grease a loaf pan.

Whisk together coconut milk, butter and banana in a mixing bowl.

Gradually mix in flour, cornflour, brown sugar and vanilla extract.

Stir until well combined.

Pour batter onto prepared pan, bake for  35-40  minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring onto rack to cool.
