This Banana Pineapple Bundt Cake is a fresh combination of pineapple and banana and is a wonderfully unique way to use up those leftover bananas! The bananas and pineapple give this cake a slightly tropical feel, making it a refreshing tasting cake no matter what time of year you serve. I usually have canned pineapple in my pantry, but if you have fresh pineapple, you could easily pulse into a blended to use as crushed pineapple.
This cake has a slightly decadent crunchy topping of butter, brown sugar, coconut and walnuts – and I have to say that it sends it right over the edge for tastiness. The caramelized topping is very similar to a Queen Elizabeth cake and is optional, but it truly makes it an incredibly memorable snacking cake when included!
This Banana Pineapple Bundt cake is perfect to serve at your next family gathering, potluck, or shower.
