I like using a bread machine: Once you have put the ingredients in the pan, the machine will do the rest. And if you are
exceptionally lazy in a hurry there really are some decent ready-made mixtures on the market.
For this event I wanted to bake a bread to be eaten with cheese or ham, not a sweet one. The banana made it soft, but did not taste overly strong, the nuts made it slightly crunchy and the coconut gave a nice flavour.
The banana did not distribute evenly, making it look like a marble cake and this part even got darker each day.

|150||ml||Water, at room temperature|
|150||ml||Milk, at room temperature|
|2||table spoon||Sun flower oil|
|100||gram||Cashew nuts; half of it chopped und half of it ground|
|50||gram||Desiccated, shredded coconut|
Put the water, the milk and the oil into the pan of the bread machine. Add the yeast together with the sugar and let dissolve for some minutes.
Add the flour, salt, coconut and cashew nuts. Peel the banana and add in slices.
Close the machine and let it do its work for about 3.5 hours, using the standard program with settings for a dark crust.
When finished, open the machine and let the bread cool down a bit before removing.
