The melding of banana, coconut and pecans give this cake a unique flavour, and the luscious Banana Nut Icing is truly the icing on the cake. Best if made a day before serving.
Altered ingredient amounts. After reading the review about this cake being too sweet and heavy, I altered the ingredients and it was a winner. I made it for a gathering and everyone loved it. 200g caster sugar, 2 eggs (separated, whisked whites and folded at the very end just before pouring mix into baking tin), 2 ripe bananas, mashed, 75g chopped pecans, 60g desiccated coconut, Banana Nut Icing: 125g butter, softened 250g icing sugar chopped pecans sprinkled on top of the cake after putting icing on 75g desiccated coconut 1 teaspoon vanilla extract - 27 Feb 2011
