"A great recipes....made even better with a few modifications to suit my taste. I reduced the vegetable oil to 3/4 cup and added 1/2 cup buttermilk. I also added about 3/4 cup coconut. Instead of di..." See morecing the bananas, I mashed them. I used two 8" round cake pans greased, floured, and the bottoms lined with parchment paper - I baked at 350F for approx 35-40 min. After the cakes cooled I assembled the layer cake, frosting the layers with cream cheese frosting and garnishing the side of the cake with more shredded coconut. Thanks Carol for sharing this great recipe!!"
"I had been wanting to make this cake for a while, so I was happy to find the recipe. I read the reviews first and noticed a lot of others thought reducing the oil was a good idea. I wanted to use app..." See morele sauce instead of oil anyway, so I thought I would use 1 to 1 1/4 cups apple sauce in place of the oil. I however, only had 3/4 cup apple sauce so I used it and also added 1/4 cup oil. I used 3 9" pans instead of the bundt pan as well, then frosted it with cream cheese frosting and pressed additional nuts into the frosting. The cake turned out wonderful, got a lot of compliments. But next time I will use 1 1/4 cups apple sauce and no oil. This will cut down on the fat and makes for a very moist and tasty cake."
