Sourdough Coconut Banana Bread is one of the most deliciously amazing loaves you’ll ever taste! Oh my.
It’s just SO good!!
If you’re a fan of coconut then this loaf is just what you need~ it’s one of those delicate loaves that melt in your mouth. Oh my goodness. This recipe alone is completely worth getting your sour dough start going 🙂
If you’re like me- I used to only be familiar with sour dough bread loaves which are very good but have a strong, sharp flavor to it. These recipes using sour dough start that I have been sharing with you are much more mild. The sour dough starter just adds a little bit of ‘tang’ to it and let me tell you it’s a tang you want to experience! Seriously.
It’s a whole new flavor accent that I completely adore!
- ½ cup coconut oil, softened
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- 1 egg, room temperature
- 1½ teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup fresh sourdough start
- 2 overripe bananas, mashed (approx 1 cup)
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ cup sweetened coconut flakes
- Coconut Glaze:
- ¼ cup butter, room temperature
- 1 teaspoon coconut flavoring
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 3 tablespoons heavy whipping
- toasted coconut flakes for garnish
- Preheat oven 350 degrees F.
- Coat 9x5 pan with cooking spray; set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl cream coconut oil.
- Add sugars and cream 3-4 minutes until light and fluffy.
- Add egg; mix 2 minutes.
- Add vanilla, sourdough start, and mashed banana; mix to incorporate.
- In a separate bowl combine flour, sea salt, and baking soda; use a whisk to combine.
- Add flour mixture all at once to wet ingredients; mix until 80% incorporated.
- Add sweetened coconut flakes; gently mix with spatula to combine.
- Do not over mix- a few lumps are okay.
- Evenly spread batter into prepared pan.
- Bake 45-60 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center removes clean.
- If at 45 minutes the top of the loaf looks very browned, set a piece of foil over the top to protect over browning. ( I needed to do this)
- Cool on rack for 10 minutes, turn out and complete cooling.
- Coconut Glaze:
- In a small mixing bowl cream butter.
- Add powdered sugar; mix.
- Add coconut flavoring; mix.
- Add cream 1 tablespoon at a time; mix between additions.
