1 stick butter, softened
1 1/4 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c buttermilk (I like Borden's)
3 or 4 overripe bananas, mashed
1/2 c shredded coconut, plus 2 Tbsp for garnish
1 1/2 Tbsp of fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
1/2 c powdered sugar, sifted
pinch of salt
Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes on a stand mixer. Add eggs one a time, beating well after each addition, and then add vanilla. Sift flour, salt, and baking soda together and add one-third of dry ingredients to batter. Add 1/2 of buttermilk, then one-third of dry ingredients, then the other half of buttermilk, then the last of the flour. Mix in bananas and coconut just until blended (don't overmix). You can also stir in pieces of pecans or walnuts (dredged in flour).
