Method

 

Preheat oven to 180°C.

Beat the butter and sugar together until light. Add the eggs and beat well. Add the banana, vanilla and a pinch of salt. Beat for a few seconds to combine.

Fold in the self-raising flour and then spoon the mixture into a greased ring tin.

Bake in a preheated oven for approximately 35 minutes. You may need to cover the cake with a piece of aluminium foil if you see it is browning too quickly. The cake is done once a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and set aside to cool. Then invert onto a serving plate.

Syrup:
Heat the butter, sugar and rum together. Stir until the sugar has dissolved, then simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and spoon over the top of the cake. Scatter with coconut to decorate and serve warm or at room temperature with a dollop of whipped cream or scoop of vanilla ice cream.
