Rated as 3.56 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe lends itself well to tweaking (as most of us will do, and I cheerfully include myself here!) and is an extremely easy and elegant way to serve cake for breakfast! The base recipe is my mother's, with my twists added."

  1. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan. Combine the flour, oats, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl; set aside.
  2. Beat the brown sugar, eggs, bananas, vanilla extract, orange zest, and butter in a bowl until smooth. Stir the dry mixture into the egg mixture until smooth; fold in the coconut and almonds. Pour into the prepared cake pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • Slice in wedges as you would a cake, dust with powdered sugar, if desired, and serve with sliced strawberries or any seasonal fruit - a lovely presentation.

This recipe makes GREAT muffins. They aren't very sweet, so if you're looking to satisfy a sweet tooth, you want to add some extra sugar. But, as is they make for a FANTASTIC breakfast muffin....

Yum! Loved the combo of oats, coconut and orange zest. Not sure if the bananas being sliced was a typo or not but I mashed mine and it turned out great. Made this twice already- thanks!

I didn't make any changes, and for me the banana/orange flavour works. But my hungry hordes were not entirely happy with it. So may not make it again.

I made the recipe and my family loved it. I used 4 ripped bananas, half honey and half brown sugar, and almond flour. Delicious!

Wonderful! Used half honey and half brown sugar, and cut that back a little since our coconut was the sweetened kind. Finely chopped the whole almonds we had. Took about 40 minutes to bake up. ...

I suggest adding 2-3 bananas! One isn't enough!

I don't know about the 5 star reviews but I made this according to the directions and it was very dry and dense and the orange was too strong.
