Banana Coconut tea loaf


For afternoon tea, slice the loaf and serve with almond butter and unsweetened fruit preserves. 
Nice lightly toasted, too. 
Accompany with a second-flush Darjeeling or a tippy full-leaf Assam.

3 cups unbleached or whole-wheat pastry flour, or a combination of the two
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 Tablespoons sunflower or other light oil
2 Tablespoons maple syrup or alternative liquid/syrupy sweetener
4 very ripe bananas, mashed well

Preheat oven to 350 deg F. Lightly oil and flour a loaf pan. Combine the flour, coconut, powder, and soda in a large mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients, mixing together well with a wooden spoon or your hands, as batter will be thick. Spread evenly into the loaf pan, smoothing the top. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick stuck into the middle comes out clean. Cool for at least twenty minutes before slicing and serving. You can leave the loaf in the pan or remove it to a serving dish or storage container.
