THB #11 ~ Banana, Macadamia Nut, And Coconut Coffee Cake

We at The Home Bakers organised by Joyce
are baking our 11th recipe of the 60 in
Lou Seibert Pappas'
"Coffee Cakes ~ sweet, simple and savory"
Do join us in our quest to complete all 60 recipes in this
fabulous book!
I remembered the oil in the nick of time! 
 Above: wet and dry ingredients with my added touch - 
1/2 cup of frozen cranberries! 
and reducing sugar to 1/2cup too!
and oh! I used yogurt instead of sour cream....
and omitted the rum...
 Above: shredded coconut
 Above: cranberries
sprinkle the chopped macadamia nuts evenly on top
then topped with the brown sugar with cinnamon powder
 needed to bake them for longer than 35mins ~ an extra 5mins!
 a good rise!
 I am happy that I added the cranberries
firstly for a pop of color and for favour!
Absolutely tender!
