      This cake was fantastic! I used 2 full cups of mashed banana in order to replace some of the butter and it worked beautifully. I also had forgotten to buy coconut and nuts for the topping, so I just left them out and added a little cinnamon. Once under the broiler, this formed a delicious hard shell that really made the cake. I'll be making this again very soon!
