Chocolate Banana Coconut Cake

This sublime banana coconut cake recipe is proof that some cakes are love at first sight and you just know it was meant to be.

The cake is light and fluffy, and balanced by layers of airy whipped cream chocolate frosting, then smothered in rich dark chocolate ganache. And there’s coconut too – in the cake and as decoration.

Honestly, this is not the easiest or quickest cake in the world to bake and assemble but it is certainly worth the effort.

The balance is perfect; not one element outshines another, which is pretty impressive given you are dealing with strong flavours like banana, chocolate and coconut.

And it looks so amazingly good too!
