I love to try different styles of banana breads whether sweet or savory depending on my mood. This sweeter version has a lovely hint of coconut in the background with spices of cardamom, vanilla and cinnamon. It is really easy to make and perfect for a slow sunday with some fig jam and toasted seeds. You can alter the level of the sugar to your liking or even add a bit of honey to the mixture. I think I need to try a combination with pecan nuts and figs or even rhubarb as it is in season at the moment! Have a relaxing sunday everyone!

Ingredients

  • 4 ripe bananas
  • vanilla pod
  • 1 1/2 dl sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream
  • Splash of milk
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped cashews
  • 2 teaspoons salt

Directions

Heat oven to 180 Celsius degrees. In a large bowl, beat sugar and butter until fluffy. Beat in eggs, stir in banana, milk/coconut cream and the seeds from the vanilla pod.

In another bowl, mix together the dry ingredients; flour, nuts, spices, baking soda, salt. Then add the banana minute into it all at once. Stir together and pour into a silicon loaf pan. Sprinkle sugar on top before placing into the oven.

Bake about an hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Leave to cool and enjoy with fig jam and toasted seeds
