Banana and nuts loaf(Eggless)/muffin with coconut

One more dessert for the Christmas.....

few days back my Niece wrote about the banana muffin make by her mum,,,,,,she said it was very yummy and tasty.....even I wanted to prepare banana muffin..so i asked sister-in-law about the recipe.....it seems very interesting and easy..so I decided to prepare for this Christmas eve.......when I prepared I really felt very nice to see that loaf..it was so nice with a nice aroma..and coconut crunchy flavor..as pre recipe i have not made muffins..but i have used loaf tin for the same....the recipe goes like below...

Riped banana 3 (medium or 2 big)
desiccated coconut 1/2 cup
white sugar 2TBSP
Brown sugar 2TBSP
Whole wheat flour 1 cup
Sunflower oil 1/2 cup
baking powder 1/2 tsp
Cinnamon powder 1/2 tsp(optional)
baking soda 1tsp
milk 3-4 TBSP(add if ur cake batter seems very thick)
Any nuts chopped 1/4 cup(optional)(I have used mixed chopped nuts)

How to prepare:
chop the banana and make smooth pure in blender ans add in a big mixing bowl. Add sugar(both the sugars) and oil to this pure and mix well by using the whisk or you can also add sugar and oil along with banana while making puree..

Mix together flour,baking powder and baking soda.

Now add the desiccated coconut and cinnamon powder to the pure and mix properly

then add the flour gradually and fold in the batter carefully,(add milk if required). When the batter is well mixed, it will become creamy and smooth.

Preheat the oven at 350F/180C or gas mark 4(as i am using gas cooker ). Take a loaf tin,(I have used 23cm x 13cm tin) grease it with butter and dust with flour..Pour batter into the tin pat the tin and sprinkle the chopped nut on top of the batter and bake for around 50-55 mins(or till the tooth pick comes out clean.

once the cake is done..take out from the oven and keep it on wire rack for getting cool(or u can have a warm cake with tea also...

or once it is cool...cut and just eat...yummyyy..
