A teenage boy just requested a "coconut banana cake." What do you think that means? Should I just make my regular banana cake batter, throw in a cup of coconut, then frost it with buttercream?

Or, should I do a coconut cake w/banana cream filling or a banana cake w/coconut cream filling?

Any ideas? I expect someone to suggest that I just ask him, but I can't -- it's a long story why.

Thanks for any ideas you might have. I appreciate it!

I would do a banana cake, filled w/a banana mousse or pudding and coconut flavored Italian Meringue Buttercream. Fab combination.

Here's some ideas! Good luck! You could also use coconut milk instead of the water or milk.

I made one of these once and it actually turned out pretty well. I made a coconut cake (from a mix) and added banana pudding mix to the batter. You could taste both flavors, but they were pretty balanced.

Just another idea.
