This is not your average banana bread. This one stands up and shouts, "Look at me! Look at me!" The cream cheese and coconut are an interesting addition to this banana bread. With the addition of 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon and the brown sugar this recipe could be served as a dessert bread. I made this exactly as the directions advised. Very nice, Karen!
I just made this wonderful coconut cream banana nut bread. It was delicious and definately a keeper. I would have given it 5 stars, but it wasn't quite a "WOW" in my books. I think it could have used more nuts and more banana's. Also, I really liked the coconut in the cream part that I think next time I will add some coconut to the bread mixture too. We are having a bake sale at work next week to help raise money for the American Diabetes Association and I am going to make this recipe for it. Enjoy!!!
This bread was good, we really liked the cream cheese coconut layer, yummy!
I liked the bread--nice flavor and not too sweet. I'd definitely make it again, but I would try baking it all in one 9 x 5-inch loaf pan (as no pan size was indicated I used two 9x4-inch loaf pans--I ended up with two flat loaves about 2 inches high).
Very moist and delicious! I followed your recipe exactly except that I forgot the coconut. I can't believe I did that!!! The bread was still wonderful, but I bet it is even better with the coconut! I'll be making this again. Thanks Karen!
