    Sam the Engineer's Note:

    A light, summery cake that is full of flavor but is easy on the waistline. This desert pairs wonderfully with sherbet ice cream or sorbet.

    Units: US | Metric




    1. 1
      Grease a loaf pan and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. 2
      In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar.
    3. 3
      In a separate bowl, mix the egg, banana/citrus juice mixture, unsweetened apple sauce and nuts or chocolate chips (if desired) until well mixed, but not completely smooth.
    4. 4
      Mix the wet ingredients into the dry mixture until batter is smooth and pourable.
    5. 5
      The mixture should never be completely smooth because of the banana chunks and nuts or chocolate chips (if desired).
    6. 6
      Pour the mixture into the loaf pan and bake for 40 minutes.
    7. 7
      While baking the cake, mix the confectioners sugar and citrus juice in a small sauce pan over med-high heat, until the sugar carmelizes and becomes smooth.
    8. 8
      Once smooth, reduce heat to medium and wait until cake is done.
    9. 9
      Once cake is baked, allow to cool for 5-10 minutes and pour the carmelized sugar/citrus juice frosting over the cake.
    10. 10
      Quickly sprinkle with coconut shavings, as frosting will become hardened once cooled.
    11. 11
      Serve and be happy.
