Why I Love This Recipe

This Recipie is from an old issue of an Icelandic Food magazine (Gestgjafinn) This has been my favourite ever since and everybody loves it who tries it with me. I think it is quite American Style :) Hope you will enjoy it also.

Ingredients You'll Need

5 dl (ca 300g) Flour
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Salt
2 dl (200g) soft Butter (one USA Stick Butter is 125g)
2 dl Ligth Brown Sugar (ca 1 cup)
1 dl Sugar
1 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Essence
3 large Eggs
1 Tbsp grated peel of Lemon (Make sure it is Organic Lemon)
3 big Bananas finely minced with a fork
3 Tbsp Creme Fraiche (Sour Cream)
1 1/2 dl (75g, 1/2 cup) Chopped Walnuts
2 dl (70g) Grated Coconut


Sift the Flour

Mix the dried ingredience together.

Beat the butter and sugar creamy together,

add the eggs

then vanilla and lemon peel

Then mix in the Sour Cream and bananas

Then little by little the dry ingredients

Finally the nuts and

make sure not to stir too long, just long enough to combine all

Bake in a round form with a hole in it or in a large Loaf Form

for ca 1 hour at 180°C

Or until a needle comes out clean and the Kitchen is filled with it´s beautiful smell

Wonderful with a good cup of coffee, and it is also good to put some cold butter on the slice or even yellow cheese (Gouda is my favourite :)).
