  • 3

    Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

    Combine the sugar, banana purée, eggs, and oil in with an electric mixer, mix on medium speed with the paddle until blended. Scrape the bowl as needed.

  • 5

    Add the sifted dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Mix in the crushed Barras de Coco. Pour batter into the loaf pan and top with shredded coconut.
