Hello All! I'm looking for a moist and delicious (of course! Smile) banana coconut cake recipe. I've found a few online, but most of them are simply banana cakes with a coconut cream icing. A co-worker would like one for her birthday that reminds her of one she had during her childhood. She says that the cake itself is banana and coconut with a banana and coconut icing. Any ideas would be appreciated! Thanks in advance...

Try this...a friend had it in her puter...don't know where it came from, but sounds good.

Banana Coconut Cake

7 ounces unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups granulated white sugar
3 large eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 1/3 cups mashed ripe banana
1 cup shredded coconut
1 1/3 cups sifted cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup finely-chopped pecans
custard:
1 can unsweetened coconut milk - -- (13.5 oz)
1 cup milk
2/3 cup white sugar
5 egg yolks
1/3 cup cornstarch
assembly:
3 bananas -- sliced
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes -- toasted -- golden-brown

Preheat the oven to 350F. Butter and flour two 9-inch cake pans.

Cake: In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar together until it is light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well in between each addition, and continue to beat until very light and fluffy. Add buttermilk and mashed banana and mix well. Stir in coconut.

In a separate bowl, sift dry ingredients together (flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder), then add to batter and mix at low speed on the electric mixer until moistened. Beat one minute at medium speed, then fold in pecans and pour batter evenly into the two prepared cake pans.

Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. After removing the cakes from the oven, allow them to cool for five minutes, then invert onto a cooling rack. Assemble when thoroughly cooled.

Coconut Custard: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and cut another piece of parchment to the same size. Set both aside. Combine the coconut milk and milk and stir together.

In a bowl, mix 2/3 cup of sugar with 1/3 cup cornstarch and stir with a fork until free from lumps. Mix the sugar and cornstarch together with the egg yolks and 1 cup of coconut milk mixture. Whisk until smooth and set aside.

In a heavy saucepan, bring the remaining coconut milk mixture to a boil. Pour it into the bowl with the egg yolk-sugar mixture, whisking constantly. Return the mixture to the saucepan over medium flame and continue stirring.

Cook until small bubbles start to form on the surface of the custard.

Remove from the heat and spread onto the parchment-lined baking sheet.

Cover the top of the custard with the other sheet of parchment to prevent a skin from forming. Cool in the refrigerator.

To assemble Cake: In a large bowl, gently toss banana slices with the lemon juice, and sugar. Trim the top of the first layer of cake so that the surface is level, then spread with a thin layer of custard. Place bananas completely over bottom layer, so that no cake is showing. Spread with another layer of coconut custard. Place next cake layer on top of this and spread the top generously with coconut custard.

Garnish liberally with toasted coconut flakes.
