Golden Banana - Coconut Cream Cake
CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 Yellow Cake Mix

DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350', grease and flour a 13 x 9 inch pan or bundt cake pan.
  2. Mix all ingredients except for Frosting of course...

  5. Allow pan to cool for 10-15 minutes. Invert pan. Allow to cool fully before drizzling frosting or icing cake. Garnish with Coconut! Enjoy!
RECIPE BACKSTORY
I made this cake up a couple of weeks ago for my hubby's b-day! He isn't really a big "cake" person so I knew I had to make something special... His favorite flavor EVER is Banana, so I knew I had to create a cake around that- here's what I came up with!!
