  • 2Slice bananas. Place slices evenly on the bottom of each cake pan.
    Melt butter in small pan. Add brown sugar and lemon juice, and heat till dissolved.
  • 3Pour half of brown sugar mixture into each of the cake pans, over the bananas.
  • 4Sprinkle coconut over brown sugar sauce.
  • 5Pour cake batter on top of the coconut into both pans, dividing equally.

  • 7Remove from oven and let sit five minutes.

    Instead of having two separate single-layer cakes, you might want to put one layer on top of the other (with the bananas in between the layers, just like frosting)! I think I'll try that next time. ☺
