Blue Ribbon Banana Cake
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 25 min.
The directions for making this cake are not very clear. One cup coconut divided. Sprinkle 1/2 cup coconut over tops before baking. Does this mean 1/2 cup each or a total of 1/2 cup for the two layers. If so, what do you do with the other 1/2 cup that is left? Also, when icing the cake, it says to ice the bottom layer on the plain side, so if you do it that way then you have coconut on the very bottom of the cake? Please clarify the directions as I would love to try this cake. Thank you
When you freeze the ripe bananas, do you remove them from the peel? I've tried freezing them before, and never had much success. They get watery.
I've been making this cake for over 20 years. Always a big hit and never any leftovers. Yes you sprinkle coconut over top before baking, makes a toasted coconut for the other filling ingredients. Totally awesome cake!
Love the coconut on top of the banana cake and the creamy frosting.
The recipe calls to grease 2 -9" pans and sprinkle 1/2 cup coconut on each. The recipe is right and delicious!
This cake was very tasty. The cake was like banana bread. The filling reminded me of a german chocolate cake icing. The buttercream icing was a little too sweet. The recipe must have a typo because the ingredients say 1 cup of coconut but the directions only indicate where to use 1/2 c coconut. Where does the rest of the coconut go? In the cake? In the buttercream? Overall a very tasty cake. It is very appropriate for a special occasion.
