Banana-Berry Cake with Coconut-Lime Topping
When it's that time of year where no regional fresh fruits are available anyways, I thought something tropical would fit just perfectly. I have several banana cake recipes, but I didn't feel like making 'just' a banana cake today, I wanted it to be something with even more caribbean flair to it. Sooo I decided to add some coconut, limes and raspberries...-raspberries and tropical? Don't ask, I just felt liking adding those.
It turns out to be a pretty summery cake! The bananas make it a great enery-boost alternative to your everyday müsli in the morning and the sheet tray size of it makes a big enough portion for your afternoon tea/midnight-snack/inbetween snack etc...so get those old bananas out of the bottom of your fruit bowl and start mashing!
