"I'm new as a field editor and until I got my new computer back in 2010, I didn't rate recipes! But now I admit that recipes which I didn't rate before I got my computer, I can do that now! I used a banana cake MIX instead of the banana quick bread bread & muffin mix! I've used other flavors of cake mix and pie filling to match the flavor & I also used 3/4 cup of sweetened flaked coconut. Other than that, I kept the recipe the same and I've used a 13x9x2" baking pan, greased and floured, rather than use a baking dish! Dawn E. Lowenstein"

"This was a good dessert but it wasn't amazing. I would make it again, but I might serve it w/whip cream on top."
