Banana Coconut Cake

Preheat oven to 325.

Cream sugar, coconut oil, eggs, and vanilla with mixer until fluffy. Sir in dry ingredients alternately with buttermilk and bananas. Stir in nuts and coconut. Pour into 13x9 pan or two 9 inch cake pans that have been greased with coconut oil and floured.

Bake approximately 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Cool completely on wire rack(s).

Fill and frost top of cake with icing below.


Mix sugar, butter, cream, and egg yolks in a saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat stirring until thickened, about 10-12 minutes. Stir in vanilla, coconut, and pecans. Beat until spreading consistency. This icing is also good on chocolate cake.

I made these into small cakes/muffins substituting 1/2 cup coconut flour and 1& 1/2 cups white spelt flour. they were light and delicious but very sweet. I'll use less sugar next time.

does anyone know if you can replace the whole wheat pastry flour with regular flour?

does anyone know how much coconut flour i'd for this recipe use if i wanted to substitute the pastry four completely?

i'm just getting used to cooking & baking w/ coconut flour & don't know the equivalent substitution yet :-(

Excellent cake - dense, moist & great tasting!

I used 1 1/2c glutten-free flour + 1/2c of coconut flour to make the 2c and added 2 extra eggs. It came out perfect.

However, the icing was a different story... didn't turn out as per recipe :-( but I saved it by adding cream cheese, confectionery sugar & coconut flour to thicken it. I sprinkled the shredded coconut on the icing; thus, I didn't have to use as much.
