Simple Banana Coconut Crumb Cake – Easy to make recipe, banana coconut cake with a delicious crumb topping. Simple dessert for those who love those tropical flavors. Put together in 15 minutes.
My friends, you all know by now how much I love me some coconut, right? Coconut is so good in drinks. I mean this one is downright delightful! For breakfast, I could eat these every day! For dessert, these go down good and they’re so simple to make!
For lunch how about this soup? I mean there is no stopping the coconut. It’s versatile and amazing.
Except for those who don’t like coconut. I’m so sorry for you! You’re really missing out on a world of good. I felt that way for years when I didn’t like coffee. I mean for crying out loud! Everyone likes coffee or so it felt. And then one day, I sort of liked the taste and my love grew and grew.
So, there is hope. Taste buds do change. Believe it or not. I tell my kids that all the time. Especially when they’re refusing something healthy.
But, as far as coconut goes, everyone in our house likes it. So I’m usually safe to make as many coconut dishes and treats as I like and there’s plenty of people to share it with. And that’s always the best part of food, sharing it.
Challenge: make something new this week and find a friend or neighbor and share the goodness.
