1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1 teaspoon vanilla

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9-by-5-inch loaf pan; set aside.

Made this without using coconut, orange juice and orange peels. Came out soft, moist and good. I used 3 bananas and macadamia nuts. Also, I sifted the flour.
