Banana & Coconut Cake

I have a friend I cook for who is a banana freak and so in an effort to cook something different I went on a search for Banana Cakes!  This one is really yummy adding the coconut makes such a difference to the normal banana breads.


180g butter
150g caster sugar
2  ripe bananas, mashed
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence (I use homemade)
2 tbsp desicated coconut
180g Self Raising flour


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees and grease a 20cm cake tin
  • cream butter and sugar until fluffy
  • Add the mashed bananas, coconut and vanilla essence and beat until combined
  • Add the eggs one at a time beating after each addition
  • Add the flour and mix well
  • Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 45 mins or until a tester comes out clean.
