Banana-Nut Bundt Cake

June Yeates shares this eye-appealing cake that has a temptingly tropical twist in every slice. "If you like, sprinkle confectioners' sugar over the top," says the Bradley, Illinois baker.

    Made this for Christmas morning and it was a hit. Not too sweet and just the right moistness. It is definitely a keeper.

    I had everything but the coconut but it still turned out great. It was actually my first bundt cake ever. I improvised and made a coffee cinnamon glaze to go over it. (1 cup powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp powdered instant coffee mix, and milk a tsp at a time until it was the right consistency.) Mine fell apart a bit too but my mother in law said to flour the pan after you grease it to make it come out better.

    I tried this and it was delicious, the only thing is I couldn't get it out of the bundt pan in one piece. What did I do wrong? I used PAM to grease it with, should I have used lard instead?
