Hello!! It's Recipe time

Thought I'd share the recipe I was telling you about. Hope you try it!
We had a nice weekend despite the heat.
I took photos for a 60th birthday party on Saturday and Sunday we just
hung out. Looking forward to this weekend! My brother and family are visiting.
Maddie can't wait to see her cousin.

Coconut Banana Bread with Lime Glaze
(Recipe from

2 C Flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2tsp salt
1 C Sugar
1/4 C (4tbs) real butter, softened
2 Large eggs
1 1/2 C Mashed ripe bananas (about 4 large bananas)
1/4 C Sour cream or Plain yogurt
4 Tbs apple juice or milk
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 C Coconut

Topping 2 Tbs additional coconut
Glaze 1/2 C powdered sugar whisked with 1 1/2 Tbs fresh lime juice

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees

Whisk Flour, Baking soda and salt together and set aside

In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until blended. Add eggs and beat to combine. Add banana, sour cream or yogurt, apple juice (or milk) and vanilla. Beat until blended. Add flour mixture and beat at a low speed until just combined. Stir in 1/2 C coconut.

Pour batter into a  9x5 loaf pan that has been sprayed with non stick spray. Sprinkle additional 2 Tbs of coconut on top.

Bake in oven for about 1 hour or until a knife or skewer
 inserted in center comes out clean. Check bread after about 40 minutes. If the top has browned and the coconut pieces are looking toasty, cover top of bread lightly with a piece of foil. Continue baking until done.

When done, remove pan from oven.
 Let cool on a cooling rack for 10 minutes and then
carefully remove from pan. 
Whisk powdered sugar and lime juice together for the glaze and
then drizzle over top. Cool for another 15 minutes before slicing.
