There is something about cooked banana that just bowls me over every time. The sugars caramelize so beautifully and make a lovely counterpoint to sweet, moist cake and toothsome shredded coconut. The recipe below is a perfect example.
Starting with a simple boxed cake mix, this cake is easy to whip up. I love the combination of tropical flavors – bananas and coconut in a rich caramel sauce. And of course, don’t forget to top it with a scoop of ice cream or dollop of whipped cream for a really impressive finish to a meal.
