Banana Bread with Mascapone Frosting (Home -made Holidays)

I just love Banana Bread and have combined a couple recipes to come up with this ultimate one! I hope you give it a try. I mean, what mom doesn’t have some overripe bananas lying around these days. Oh, and if your bananas are overripe and you don’t want to bake just peel them and put them in a baggy in your freezer. Awesome for teething or a quick smoothie! YUM!

Banana Bread
  1. 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus some for greasing the pan 
  2. 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  3. 1/2 cup wheat flour
  4. 1 teaspoon salt
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  6. 3/4 sugar
  7. 2 eggs
  8. 3 very ripe bananas, mashed with a fork until smooth
  9. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  10. 1/2 cup chpopped pecans or walnuts (I used walnuts or you can omit)
  11. 1/2 grated dried unsweetened coconut
  • Preheat the overn to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
  • Mix together the dry ingredients. Cream the butter and beat in the eggs and bananas. Stir this mixture into the dry ingredients; do not mix more than necessary. Gently stir in the vanilla, nuts, and coconut.
  • Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake for 45 to 60 minutes, until nicely browned. A toothpick inserted in the center of the bread will come out fairly clean, but banana bread is excessively moist compared to other breads. Do not overcook. Cool on a rack for 15 minutes before removing from the pan. To store, wrap in waxed paper.
