Hello, friend! Hope you’re having a nice weekend. If you like cakes like I do, you will like this banana and mango bundt cake recipe. I think a bundt cake or anything homemade makes a good gift for someone. The great thing about bundt cakes is it bakes into a beautifully-shaped mold and it does not require a lot of effort in decorating.

Instructions:

cake:

  1. Set and preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  4. After the eggs are mixed in, add the vanilla extract, then mix well.
  5. Into a separate bowl, sift the all-purpose flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt.

  9. Place the bundt cake pan in the middle to lowest level metal oven rack and onto a baking sheet pan for added support.
  10. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 75 to 80 minutes. Rotate baking sheet pan at the halfway mark to cook bundt cake evenly.
