BAC Bread (Banana-Almond-Coconut)

The moment I saw this recipe here on Meena's blog, (a recipe developer, consultant & food writer) I was sure I would bake it, as it was a easy hassle free way to make bread. The preparation time and baking time was 45 minutes. The bread was semi-moist and my family liked it. It has aroma of banana, mingled taste of almond, coconut and banana! Thanks to Meenakshi Agarwal for blogging so beautifully about it.

Here are the ingredients and directions :

Ingredients :
2 ripened bananas
1/4th cup granulated sugar
1/4 th cup melted butter
1 tsp clear vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
1/2 cup sliced almonds

Method :
Mash the bananas, add melted butter, sugar with a hand mixer ensure it is mixed evenly. Add essence. Sift together the dry ingredients, that is , flour , baking powder and baking soda, add it spoon by spoon into the mixture and incorporate it well. Add the coconut and sliced almonds, mix well. Grease or line a baking pan with parchment paper and fill it 3/4th of the pan. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Check by inserting till a knife or toothpick comes out clean.
