Coconut muffin with caramelized bananas

If you don't even really like coconut flakes, I still recommend that you make this muffin. This cupcake is a cross between Bounty sweets, Pina Colada cocktail and the well-known Kokosanka cookies. This cupcake took all the best! Despite its apparent simplicity, the composition of this cake is rich, which is reflected in its delicious taste. And do not even think that you will get "coconut flakes crunching on your teeth", no, the cake is juicy and incredibly tasty!
