    i made it for my sister's birthday on halloween .. made it in a 7.5-inch glass dish without wax paper .. used a medium sized egg & over a cup of mashed banana .. topped it with 1.5 recipes of the topping replacing the nuts & coconut with peanuts, almonds & pistachios .. sandwiched it with buttercream .. the nutmeg was glorious and the delectable cake was gone within 14.5 hours !

    This was popular and so pretty - no macademia nuts or coconut hanging out so I just used pecans and everyone loved it. Definetly worthy of company or taking to a brunch. Hard to belive it is light. Even though my oven is calibrated, I checked it 3 minutes early and it was finished, one more minute and it would have been dry.

    This was very good! I doubled the topping like other reviewers suggested, and it was a great move - the topping is by far the best part! I used frozen, thawed bananas and they worked great. I will definitely make this again, especially when I have overnight guests. Step-by step photos and details on my blog:

    Very good. Used pecans instead of macs, used coconut oil for veggie oil, and only had parchment on hand. It came out beautifully even at very high altitude.
