Banana Coconut Bundt Cake
I love coconut. It’s my all-time favorite flavor. So of course I’m always looking for new & creative ways to add it to just about any recipe I can think of. I don’t really know how or why, because my mom never cared much for it. I’m actually surprised we ever had it in the house. I suppose it was because she was always making treats for other people & coconut is loved by so many. It can be a hard one though. I think most people are either all in or completely out. Rarely do I find people that are indifferent about it. But in this house- it’s an absolute favorite. So everyone was quite happy when I created this banana coconut bundt cake a while back. Smothered with sweet & creamy glaze- wow, it was DELICIOUS!
You could also skip the glaze & add a drizzle of caramel sauce instead. That would be absolutely amazing! It’s the perfect cake for all your spring & summer gatherings. It’s like a little visit to a tropical location.
