This recipe was shared with me in the early 90's by a very special and talented friend at work. She was a fabulous cook and usually brought treats to us every Friday. We talked her into doing a cookbook for us with all the favorites and we paid for the printing. Such a treasure! I think I've finally been successful in organizing all my cookbooks ~ and that's no small feat. :) Love them and can read them like a novel!
5 T. butter
1 small can Coconut
1 c. chopped pecans (I always toast them)
1 c. brown sugar (NOT firmly packed)
1 c. uncooked oatmeal (I always use the regular, not the minute type)
1 yellow cake mix
1 c. sour cream
2 large bananas, slightly mash before adding to the mixture
Combine all the topping ingredients except the butter. Melt the butter and then pour over the other ingredients and mix well. Set aside.
Combine ingredients for cake and beat at high speed of electric mixer for 2 - 3 minutes. Spray a tube or Bundt pan with Baker's Joy.
Put 1/3 of the cake batter in the baking pan. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the topping mixture.
Repeat this procedure 2 more times, ending with the topping.
