All of my favorite tropical ingredients in one cake. It is my favorite cake for summer. It is unbelievably moist and tasty. I hope you get a chance to try it and share it with your family and friends. If you don't want to use macadamia nuts - pecans or walnuts will work and be tasty too (:

Enjoy!

1/2 tsp

1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp

1 tsp

FOR GLAZE: (OPTIONAL)

2 Tbsp
butter melted
1 Tbsp

1 Tbsp

1 Tbsp
pineapple juice

FOR TOPPING:

2

1 1/3 c

1 1/3 c

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In your mixer cream butter and sugars on medium speed until fluffy. Add eggs, mashed banana, pineapple, vanilla and banana extracts, sour cream. Mix on low until well combined.
2In a separate bowl combine flour, salt and baking soda.
3Add entire flour mixture and mix on low until combined.
4Grease and lightly flour 9x13 baking pan. Pour in batter and bake 30 to 35 minutes until done. Set aside to cool.
5Combine glaze ingredients and mix until sugar has melted. Poke holes on top of cake and brush glaze over cake. You don't have to use the entire amount. I usually end up using about 3/4 of the glaze.
6In a medium sauce pan add egg, evaporated milk, sugar, and butter. On medium heat cook and stir until thick and bubbling about 6 to 8 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in coconut and macadamia nuts until combined. Cool to room temperature.
7Spread topping over cake. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
