    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!

    Excellent moist cake! I've actually been making it for years, long before joining Recipezaar, and everyone loves it, especially the topping.

    The cake part was excellent, but we did find the topping too sweet for our tastes. I would make the cake again, but replace the topping with a cream cheese frosting
