This lovely tea cake, has a wonderful texture and a beautiful flavor. Really enjoyed the combination of banana and coconut in this tasty treat. It has a really nice crumb. It was very quick and easy to make with terrific results. It rose beautifully and was perfectly baked. The glaze really adds to the cake giving it a little extra oummmf. I made it in a small heart shape cake pan instead of a loaf pan. We really enjoyed this cake. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for Fall Pac/12

VERY GOOD! Nice and moist ~ like a banana bread (cake) should be! By mistake I creamed 1/2 cup butter and decided to use it all, and take my chances ~ I mashed 4 small bananas that equaled 1 1/3 cups, used brown sugar, 1 teaspoon coconut flavoring, and 1 teaspoon rum flavoring, and baked the mixture in a 10 5/8 x 5 1/2 x 2 3/4 Pyrex loaf pan, for 1 hour and 5 minutes at 325F. I skipped the glaze and dusted with powdered sugar instead! Made for Spring PAC 2012.

This was good but it turned out more like a banana bread than cake for me. It had good flavor, thanks for helping me use all the freezer bananas!
