TWD: Lots of ways banana cake


I love banana bread. I love banana bread with coconut. I loved this recipe. I made half of it, and baked it in a loaf pan. I used coconut, coconut rum and yogurt for the liquid. It was pretty much perfect, and I wish I could make it again right now. I cut a slice to photograph, then quickly had to slice another when I accidently inhaled it. I took it over to my brother and sister-in-law's, and was told to forget about taking the rest back home with me. 
Still steaming! This week's recipe was chosen by Kimberly at Only Creative Opportunities and I think you should head over there now for the recipe, even if you're a coconut hater. That's where the 'lots of ways' comes in--you can put just about anything in here and it'll be good. Enjoy!

Yum! I also played around with adding coconut & coconut rum - so good! The yogurt sounds like a great addition.

Amanda said...

LOL! I inhaled mine too, love it! This was my farewell post with TWD after almost two years of baking along. Hope you'll stop by and say goodbye!

i agree--this cake was perfect!

Judy said...

I loved the cake as well; my daughter didn't care for the coconut (more for me). It certainly is a versatile recipe.

Your "steamy" cake looks gorgeous! ;-)

Mary, I love the way the coconut hangs out a bit. It is a wonderful cake.

Heather Davis said...

Great idea to do it as banana bread. I had to give mine away to stop myself from eating it all!

TeaLady said...

Yes, it was THAT good wasn't it. Wish I had made more than 1/2 the recipe. But tomorrow IS another day...

I love all he pieces of coconut showing in the cake. YUM!!

Nickki said...

mmmm, your cake looks so good! I can't wait to try this again with coconut!

RamblingTart said...

Oh my goodness, Mary! :-) I adore banana bread with coconut, but never thought to add coconut rum to it!! HEAVENLY! :-)

Valérie said...

Coconut rum... in a banana bread... My mind is reeling and my tastebuds are tingling!

mike said...

The coconut was the best part (along with the rum)! A fellow loaf baker! Loved this! It's my new banana bread recipe! Yours looks truly scrumptious!

jillbert said...

Looks delicious! I loved the coconut in this, and I'll have to remember to add some the next time I make banana bread.

Erin@The Sweet Life said...

Yum! The coconut additions sound great! I might have to try that next time...because there will be a next time for this one! :)

On vacation so I skipped this one. I guess I'll have to revisit it soon.
