    This cake turned out delicious and was a hit at the party i took it to. I baked one large cake rather than the mini ones. It was almost too moist, so next time i might bake it another 5 minutes or so. Flavor was amazing.

    This is a good solid recipe for a moist and flavorful cake. With the natural sweetness of banana and pineapple, you can skip the glaze if you are not much of a sweet tooth. The cake is enjoyable enough on its own without a glaze or frosting. Perhaps a dusting of powdered sugar on top would be sufficient as well. This made the most wonderful cake to have with coffee/tea. Successful recipe alterations: Instead of buttermilk I used coconut milk, and it turned out fine. Instead of mini-bundt pans I used a single large bundt. For an aromatic and flavor boost, I added 1/8 teaspoon of cardamom and used Saigon cinnamon (slightly sweeter than regular). Important tip: Definitely use a nonstick spray on the bundt pan. Greasing the pan with butter and a dusting of flour did not work for me. Only the bottom 3/4 of the cake released, leaving the rest stuck to the inside of the pan. It wasn't pretty, but it was delicious!
