Coconut Banana Cakes
Kimberly of Only Creative Opportunities picked an awesome recipe this week. It's Lots of Ways Banana Cake, and let's you get creative yourself.
I quartered the recipe, which made five cupcakes. I left the batter recipe the same, and added a coconut rum buttercream icing on top, sprinkled with coconut and almond pieces. For the icing, I used 3 Tablespoons of butter at room temperature. I added ~1 Tablespoon of coconut rum, and then confectioner's sugar until the right consistency. I couldn't stop dipping my fingers in the icing bowl while waiting for the cakes to cool! It was really good. The cake was lovely as well. A little dense and moist. I think it definitely needed a little something on top to sweetened the whole deal.
