    Mille®'s Note:

    A couple of nice wee twists on the good ol' banana bread recipe. My personal preference is to chop the macadamias into big chunks because that and the toasted coconut add lovely texture and flavour to the bread. Serve a la Two Fat Ladies, i.e. slathered with lots of butta.

      Miller this was GREAT ! Always seem to have ripe bananas around and get tired of the regular banana bread recipes. I made exactly as posted except had to leave out the vanilla bean (am on a tight budget).
