Mark Bittman’s Banana Bread


1 1/2 C AP flour
1/2 C WW flour
1 t kosher salt
1 1/2 t bp
3/4 C sugar

1 stick unsalted butter at room temp.
2 eggs
3 very ripe bananas, mashed

1 t vanilla extract
1/2 C chopped walnuts
1/2 C dried unsweetened coconut



Heat oven to 350 deg.
Grease a 9″x5″ loaf pan.
Mix together the dry ingredients, including the sugar in a bowl large enough for the final mixing of all the ingredients.
With a whisk, cream the butter and beat in the eggs and bananas in a smaller separate bowl. Stir this mixture into the dry ingredients, just enough to combine the ingredients (OK to have small lumps).
Gently stir in the vanilla, nuts and coconut.
Pour batter into loaf pan and bake for 45-60 mins, until nicely browned. A toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf will come out fairly clean when it is done, but because of the bananas this bread will remain moister than most. Do not overcook.
Cool on rack fro 15 mins before removing from pan.
