Banana nut bread is one of our favorite recipes here. It's a great breakfast bread or can even be enjoyed as dessert. If you have some ripe bananas laying around, you can use them up for this delicious recipe.

Here's what you need:

2 cups flour

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter, softened

2 eggs

1  teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon grated orange peel

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup mashed ripe bananas

1/4 cup orange juice

1 cup flaked coconut

3/4 cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts or walnuts

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease 9 x 5-inch loaf pan; set aside.

In large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, butter, eggs, baking soda, salt,  orange peel and vanilla.

With electric mixer, beat on low speed, scraping bowl often, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until thoroughly mixed.

Add bananas and orange juice, and continue beating, scraping bowl often,  until mixed, about 1 minute.

By hand, stir in coconut and nuts. (Batter will be thick.)

Spread batter into prepared pan and bake for 60 to 65 minutes, or until  toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing. Serve warm or cool.
