Raspberry, Banana & Coconut Bread

I baked this lovely little morsel for tonight’s Brisbane Transition Hub get together. More to come about that later, but for now, here’s the recipe:

1 3/4 cup SR flour
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup coconut cream
50g melted butter
1/4 cup plain flour
2 large bananas, mashed
2 eggs, whisked
100g frozen raspberries

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Grease and line loaf pan with baking paper
2. Sift flours together & add sugar
3. In a separate bowl, combine bananas, eggs, milk & butter
4. Stir in thawed raspberries
5. Pour wet mixture into the flour & sugar & stir until combined
6. Pour into a loaf tin & cover with greased foil to stop overbrowning
7. Cook for 45-50mins or until firm. Turn out once cool

Notes: Instead of using raspberries, you can use any fresh or frozen berries that you have in stock. You could also substitute finely diced dried fruit for something different. I use 2 cups of plain flour with 3 teaspoons of baking powder rather than using 1 3/4 cup SR flour & 1/4 cup plain flour. I also don’t use the greased foil, as I don’t buy or use alfoil or glad wrap.

Making Bread

Posted on

There’s something warm and comforting about the aroma of freshly baked bread. It’s a familiarity with the past and the generations of women before us who woke before the break of dawn to bake the bread before the family woke up. I’m sure there was a lot of poetic love that went into those loaves. And I’m certain there would have been many tears of exhaustion as well. While I’m lucky enough to live in a time when I can simply drive to the store and purchase everything I need and practically anything I could want, I can’t help but appreciate those women and their efforts to provide for their families the only way they were allowed. Through their efforts in the kitchen and the home.

Reading Rhonda Hetzel’s blog Down to Earth┬áhas inspired me to try baking bread. Now that I make my bed most morning it seems like a logical next step to the day. I found this quick and easy recipe on the web and it turned out delicious drizzled with a little golden syrup.
