[Recipe] Banana Coconut Cake with Chocolate Chips

March 19, 2020 1 Comments A+ a-

Staying at home means more time for baking! I love baking banana cakes whenever I spy several ripe ones at home.

This recipe is an adaptation of one of my most popular recipes, the Banana Cake, but there's an added extra unique sweetness from the desiccated coconut. Overall, this is really simple to bake - just combine the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Follow my step-by-step pictures!

Banana Coconut Cake with Chocolate Chips using Airfryer
Yield: 1 loaf cake (6.5 X 3 X 3 inches)

(A) Dry ingredients
100g cake flour (otherwise, plain flour is ok)
20g desiccated coconut (refer to photo below)
1 tsp cinnamon powder
2/3 tsp baking soda
2/3 tsp salt

(B) Wet ingredients
2 bananas
2 eggs
70g oil
60g sugar
1/3 tsp vanilla extract
50g chocolate chips

1) Preheat.
Preheat airfryer at 160 degrees Celcius for 5 minutes.

2) Combine.
Combine all the dry ingredients (A). Dig a well in the centre.

3) Mash.
Mash the bananas using the back of a fork.

4) Combine.
In another bowl, combine the remaining wet ingredients (eggs, oil, sugar, vanilla extract).

4) Add.
Add those wet ingredients to the mashed bananas. Mix well.

5) Fold.
Add all the wet ingredients, together with the chocolate chips, into the dry ingredients. Gently fold the mixture together. Pour into the baking pan (the base should be lined with baking paper).

6) Bake.
Wrap the top of the baking pan with aluminium foil. Poke a few holes at the top. Bake at 160 degrees celcius for 25 minutes.

7) Final bake.
Remove the foil. Check for doneness using a toothpick. Continue baking for another 5 minutes, until golden brown. Check that it is ready, using a toothpick.

Serve warm. Enjoy!
