      1/2   ts           Baking soda
    1       t            Salt
      3/4   c            Unsalted butter, softened

      1/2   c            Granulated sugar
    1 1/2   ts           Vanilla
    3       lg           Eggs
    1       tb           Freshly grated lemon zest
    1 1/3   c            Mashed ripe banana (about 3
                         -large)
    3       tb           Sour cream
      3/4   c            Chopped macadamia nuts
    1       c            Sweetened flaked coconut,
                         -toasted lightly and cooled
 
   Into a bowl sift together the flour, the baking
   powder, the baking soda, and the salt. In a large bowl
   with an electric mixer cream the butter with the
   sugars, beat in the vanilla, the eggs, 1 at a time,
   the zest, the banana, and the sour cream. Add the
   flour mixture, beat the batter until it is just
   combined, and stir in the macadamia nuts and the
   coconut. Divide the batter among 5 buttered and
   floured loaf pans, each 5 3/4 by 3 1/4 by 2 inches,
   and bake the breads in the middle of a preheated
   350°F. oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a tester
   comes out clean. Remove the breads from the pans and
   let them cool, right sides up, on a rack. The breads
   keep, wrapped well in plastic wrap and foil, chilled
   for 1 week or frozen for 1 month.
