Better Than Banana Bread

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Goat mom

No one in my family is a big fan of plan banana bread but all like this version. If you can wait a day to slice texture is much better. We can never resist eating warm espically when topped with cream cheese

I had bananas needing to be used so decided to try this recipe. The addition of the golden raisins and coconut worked well here. The flavor & texture of the banana bread is great and it rose beautifully. This is not super sweet, which is what I was looking for. The cooking time needed to be adjusted for my oven. I baked in a clear glass loaf pan & at 45 minutes had to reduce the heat in the oven. It took another 30 minutes before it passed the toothpick test and the outside of the loaf was darker than I prefer. It still tasted great! Thank you for sharing your recipe.
