This is one of the best frostings I have EVER had! So delicious! I used it on fresh bananna cake with a vanilla custard filling. Thank you! I think this would also be delicious on a butter cookie or chocolate cake. It's almost like a bannana version of the frosting used for german chocolate cake. Read More

This frosting is super delicious! It was easy, but just difficult mixing. I gradually creamed together 2 cups of the sugar with the softened butter and it was stiff instead of light & fluffy. So I blended in the banana and then added the remaining sugar gradually until smooth. It was the perfect topping to the banana cake I found at this site. The coconut made all the difference in giving my cake other flavor than just banana. I will use this recipe again and again. Thank you. Read More

This was even more amazing than I thought it was going to be. I only used half of the amount of powdered sugar since the banana cupcakes I was putting it on were plenty sweet. I also used walnuts instead because I prefer them. DEFINATELY toast the coconut and the nuts before you add them it! It adds the best flavor! Be careful not to whip it too much because the banana starts to separate from the butter. To solve this I threw the nuts and coconut in while they were still warm which melted it all back together. Then I put it in the fridge until it cooled down and was a spreadable consistancy. I frosted 22 cupcakes and still had some leftover. Read More

This frosting is SO easy and it tastes GREAT (it tastes even better the next day). My 4 yr old and I had a great time making it for his Grannies Birthday Cake, especially mashing up the banana. I will never buy frosting from a tub again! Read More

I did half the recipe for a square cake. I was looking for a frosting to save a rather unsweet banana crumb cake. This frosting worked good for that. I used chopped walnuts as thats what was in the cake. I thought it was rather tasty and suitable before the coconut and nuts were added. I might try it again in the future without them. But I also prefer a smoother frosting. Read More

This frosting is absolutely delicious. I used it on top of the banana cupcakes from this site and everyone loved it. I didn't mix the pecans and coconut into the frosting I just sprinkled them on top. Perfect. Thanks for the great recipe. Read More

I made this frosting for the Black chocolate Cake (also from allrecipes). It was really good together! I left out the coconut and pecans (because i didn't have any) and it turned out really good with great banana flavor:) Read More
