Banana Coconut Blueberry Cherry Bread Recipe

When my son Chad called me and said "mom we got to make a fruit filled tropical style quick bread with everything we both like in it" I said ok what did you have in mind. He just loves blueberries in everything. He said " let's make your banana bread recipe with both our favorites in them, you love coconut and cherries and I love banana's and blueberries.
 So that's how this one was created.
 Here is Chad's adapted tropical banana, coconut, blueberry bread .
Chad is the dessert lover in the family and this was a great change in the recipe for the best everyday banana bread!  Check out his Facebook page as he posts many photo's there click here

He was pretty darn happy how it turned out!

Mix together:
2 1/2 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
In another bowl beat well:
1 cup shortening
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 cup mashed banana's
1 cup blueberries
1/4 cup chopped  drained maraschino cherries
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
4 eggs
optional: 1 cup walnuts
He was very happy the recipe was very easy to make.. ok ladies yes he is single! But be careful mama protects her baby!  (Smiles)
Adapting from mom's original banana bread recipe.

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, mix till all are incorporated. Pour into two well greased loaf pans or make muffins. Bake ar 350 for 45 to 60 minutes or until brown and middle is dry when tested with a toothpick.

Needless to say, with the two loaves this makes, one survived around an hour the other went home with him.... Thanks Chad for this great adaption and with the next generation of innovative bakers this ones a keeper for me too!
