    evelyn/athens's Note:

    Adapted from Dave DeWitt and Mary Jane Wilan's book ' Callaloo, Calypso and Carnival: The Cuisines of Trinidad and Tobago'. This easy-to-make, versatile bread can be served as soon as it is cool enough to slice for sandwiches, as a sweet with coffee, or even as a dessert. It is good just plain, or it can be embellished with cream cheese or butter. It freezes well.

      My daughter and I liked it toasted with butter. The changes I made were to reduce sugar to 1/2 cup, add a little extra coconut, substitute a little pack of applesauce for the melted butter, and use whole wheat pastry flour instead of AP flour. I left out the nuts because I wanted coconut to be the dominant flavor. I don't think the changes affected the taste much. I'll make this again.Thank you!

      I was looking for an out of the ordinary banana bread recipe and came across this one,and decided to try it.Since almonds were all that I had,that is what was used.Also, I toasted the almonds and coconut.And in all honesty, I think it was the addition of the coconut made this bread extraordinary. The bread is so moist and full of flavor. And I'm so very glad I tried this recipe, it happens to be the BEST banana bread that I have ever eaten. Thank you so much for posting a wonderful recipe that WILL be made again. " Keep Smiling :) "

      Just hot out of the oven, and I burnt my GREEDY mouth by trying it when it was still TOO hot! Wonderful - I used 1/4 cup less sugar, as I used brown sugar and my bananas were VERY ripe!!!! I added the optional nuts - Walnuts and I am now waiting for it to cool down to have ANOTHER slice, and photograph it NICELY with my afternoon cuppa! Great recipe thanks Ev - made for ZWT3! FT:-)
