TWD: Lot’s of Ways of Banana Cake


I loved this cake. I was all about it. I omitted the shredded coconut and used coconut rum. My glaze was a combination of coconut rum and powdered sugar. The resulting cake was a tropical dream. To me the cake tasted like bananas added to a pina colada. I made half the recipe and there was enough batter for 6 cakelettes. Don't let the banana deter you from trying this recipe, though. One of Alex's friends who doesn't like bananas enjoyed the cake and actually went home with two of them.

Thanks to Kimberly of Only Creative Opportunities for this week's selection. Make sure to stop by her blog for the recipe and TWD's site to read about other reactions to this recipe.

Love your little cakelets (and calling them that). Love the icing on top, too. I love all things banana, so the cake was awesome! I'm trying to catch up on my reader and have 30 posts from you I haven't read yet!
Love looking at that baby grow! ;)
