2cupall purpose flour
1cupwhite granulated sugar
1-1/2cupsmashed bananasabout 3 bananas
3Tbspdark rum or spiced rum
1/2cupflaked sweetened coconut
1Tbspflaked sweetened coconut
1-1/2Tbspfresh squeezed lime juice
Preheat oven to 350. Prepare 9x5 loaf pan with parchment paper or non-stick cooking spray.
Combine dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl - flour, baking soda, salt. Whisk to combine.
In a large bowl, or the bowl of a standmixer, beat together butter and sugar until well blended and creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each egg. Add bananas, yogurt, vanilla and rum. Beat until blended. Add flour mixture and gently stir on low speed until just combined. It's okay to leave some floury bits here. Add 1/2 cup of coconut and gently stir in.
Transfer batter to prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle top of loaf with 1 tablespoon of the flaked coconut. Bake at 350 for about 1 hour, or until toothpick comes out clean.
Allow bread to cool completely. Combine powdered sugar and lime juice to make a glaze. Drizzle over cooled loaf. Slice into 12 pieces.
