Sunday baking project: Banana and coconut loaf (or cupcakes!)

Oh my baking days are far and few between but goodness I enjoy them when I can have them!  I whipped this up quickly last Sunday afternoon to use up some bananas that were on the turn.  It was a great afternoon tea and enough for school lunches for the week.

How my frills have missed the homebaked treats!

2 cups self raising flour
1 cup caster sugar
1 1/4 cup dessicated coconut
4 medium sized bananas
1 egg
1 large tin (400ml) coconut cream

Preheat oven to 170 degrees c
In a mixing bowl mix together flour, caster sugar and coconut.
 Slowly add the banana and mix through well.

Add the egg and coconut cream and you will get a thick-ish cake batter

Pour into greased loaf tin (it will do two) or cupcake (this made 10 of those plus 1 loaf tin).

Bake cupcakes for 25 minutes, loaf for 55 minutes.

OK, who is hungry?

Brilliant timing, thanks Liss. I have too many bananas and a lactose intolerant friend coming.

I've been wondering about adding coconut to my banana loaf lately... this looks like a definite goer!
