From JB Parisher
2 1/2 cups BRM all-purpose flour 
1 cup sugar
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 
1 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons salad oil 
3/4 cup milk
1 cup chopped pecans 
1 cup coconut 
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 
1 cup mashed banana 
Grease pan(s). Measure all ingredients into one bowl, beat on medium speed for 30 seconds, scraping sides and bottom of bowl constantly. Batter will be heavy and NOT smooth.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Pour batter into either 2 8 1/2x4 1/2 x 2 1/2 pans and cook for 55 minutes, or into a 9x5x3 pan and cook for 65 minutes.
Variation: Orange nutbread: decrease milk to 1/2 cup, add 4 teaspoon grated orange peel and 3/4 cup orange juice.
 If using self-rising, omit baking powder and salt.
 Baking powder. Not baking soda.
 Vegetable oil. I have no idea why I like to refer to it as "salad oil". It's mom's fault. Yeah.
 Optional to most. Required to me.
 2 or 3 medium-sized bananas. The exact amount doesn't matter.
From JB Manning:
Be sure to sift the dry ingredients.
I used the bottom portion of the broiler pan for the 'flat' part since I like the crusty ends of the loaf. This worked out very well. 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
Did not use nutmeg - and I did not use toasted coconut - will try this later
