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.

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.
