This recipe came to me by way of my brother. I enjoyed it at his home and asked for the recipe. It has become a standard dessert in our home. I enjoy it plain and sometimes I warm it up and put a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on it. Either way, it is delicious.

  • Beat eggs and banana together in a bowl until smooth. Add cake mix and apple pie filling to eggs; beat until batter is combined. Pour batter into prepared baking dish.

  • Stir brown sugar, coconut, pecans, and cinnamon together in a bowl; sprinkle over batter in the baking dish. Swirl coconut mixture into batter using a knife or toothpick.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 60 minutes.

  • Whisk confectioners' sugar and milk together in a bowl until icing is smooth. Drizzle icing over the top of the hot cake. Cool cake in the baking dish to room temperature, cover the dish with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until cold.

Cook's Notes:

Use any canned pie filling of your choice.

Peel and freeze overly-ripe bananas (the black-skinned ones) in small resealable bags. Thaw banana before mixing with eggs.

This is my recipe. You will need 2 previously frozen bananas, thawed. It is the freezing that causes the sugars and moister to crystallize, and when thawed it provides the necessary liquid (along with the eggs) to make the batter.

This was a very tasty coffee cake. More like banana bread with atopping. The topping is way too sweet. Next time I will cut back on the brown sugar and maybe the powdered sugar. I substituted blueberry pie filling so the color was off. Read More

The cake was super easy to put together I used two previously frozen bananas as CDabis suggested. I didn't have any coconut so I left it out and I substituted chopped walnuts for the pecans. It was done in less than an hour so I suggest you check on it after 35 minutes. I will definitely make this again. Read More

10.17.2 Recipe instructions really need to be clarified. The recipe lists 1 banana, cut into chunks. If you look below at the reviews, you’ll see the recipe submitter says 2 previously frozen bananas, but she gives her personal recipe link which says 1 banana (peeled and previously frozen). So what do you use? I went with 2 frozen bananas, thawed, which worked out well. I cut back a bit on the sugar (personal taste) and opted not to make the icing. I also didn't want a cold coffee cake, so I didn't refrigerate and served warm. In spite of a confusing recipe, the coffee cake cooked up beautifully, moist and tender with both banana and apple flavors present. I don’t think they make 15.25 ounce cans of pie fillings anymore, so I bought a 21 oz can and used all of it. Also, my cake mix was 15.25 oz, so I just added some cake flour to get up to the 18.25 oz mark. Honestly, with the way this started off, I was prepared for a failure, but in the end, had an easy and delicious coffee cake which I would make again Read More
