Banana, Macadamia Nut and Coconut Coffee Cake
I was so busily involved with my Terengganu food fest recently that i had actually forgotten that our latest THB ( The Home Bakers) bake was due yesterday. But no problem, we are given 4 weeks period to post this up, very flexible. I have not got the post ready yet therefore i quickly organised my photos last night. If any of you are interested to join THB, do contact Joyce for further details. Currently, we are baking from the book Coffee Cake by Lou Seibert Pappas and we are now into our 11th bake from the book. Kit from I-Lost in Austen , another member of the group had picked this Banana, Macadamia Nut and Coconut Coffee cake for us to bake . Do visit Kit's blog if you havent done so. I'm sure you will be impressed with her beautiful cakes, pictures and also flowers from her garden! I always have the impression that Kit is a very romantic lady, i might be wrong but whenever I visit her blog, i feel like i''ve been taken to a beautiful place, a cottage garden ..and birds singing..LOL!
Thanks Kit for choosing this lovely banana coffee cake. It is a very moist cake and i love the addition of coconut flakes in the cake and also the macadamia nuts cinnamon sugar topping..yum! I baked half a recipe in two small 4 inch round pan, did made a little adjustment to the recipe ie reduced the baking powder to 3/4tsp and increased the baking soda to 1/2 tsp , used yogurt in replacement of sour cream and have used 135gms mashed bananas in weight.
