      Directions

      Making the bread:
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9- by 5-inch loaf pan with butter.

      In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, coconut, baking powder, sugar, salt and spices.

      Cream together the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl after each one. Alternate adding the flour and milk, in 3 additions, mixing just to incorporate after each addition. Fold in the bananas.

      Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.

      Bake for about 1 hour 15 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.

      Remove from pan and cool to room temperature.

      Make the icing: In a small bowl combine all the ingredients until smooth.

      Spread over the top of the cooled bread.

      Enjoy. Makes a great breakfast.
