I feel like coconut is one of those things that people either love - or they totally hate. I used to be on the hating side, but for the last 6 or so years I've been head over heels in love.... because now I know how to use it!
Jesse is a fence sitter when it comes to coconut. If the coconut is clearly visible, he'll probably stay away - but when he can't see it so much, he changes his mind. This cake was one that Jesse loved - even though it had coconut in it!
You see, we're always baking banana cakes and banana bread - but I get really really bored with making the same thing over and over, so I like to switch things up!
