TWD: Lots of Ways Banana Cake


As mentioned in the book, the recipe chosen for TWD this week is supposed to be versatile, hence the name lots of ways banana cake. Other than the main ingredients-banana and shredded coconut, you can play around with the recipe, depending on your preference, or what you have in your pantry!


I made 1/3 of the recipe in a 3X7-inch rectangular pan, using dessicated coconut, milk and raisins in the batter and also skipped the frosting. I like how the cake turned out, dense and not too sweet. Just like some other cake recipes in the book, the banana cake develops a richer flavour over time and it actually tastes better the next day!

If you want to give the recipe a try, head over to Kimberly's blog!
