baked nectarine cakeI've really come to like the taste of baked nectarines and cinnamon together. They go together quite nicely. This cake is full of nectarines and bananas and is a lovely fruit explosion for the transition of summer to autumn. The nectarine slices are not only pretty on top, but they help keep the cake luxuriously moist. The coconut powder gives the cake a really nice gritty crunch. I love topping a slice of this with a dollop of fresh whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.


In these photos I split the cakes between two small pans to give one as a take-home gift, but I'm sharing the recipe for one whole larger cake. You can split them in two, if you wish.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (gluten free flour works well, too)
  • 1 cup coconut powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter or oil
  • 2 nectarines


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Whisk together the flour, coconut powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.
  2. mixing dry ingredients
  3. In another bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until smooth.
  4. smashing bananas with fork

  5. Beat the egg into the mashed bananas.
  6. mixing egg in bananas
  7. Stir in the milk, cinnamon and melted butter (or oil).
  8. adding remaining wet ingredients
  9. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir to combine completely.
  10. mixing wet & dry together
  11. Pour batter into lightly greased 9" cake pan (or 2 smaller ones).
  12. cake batter in baking pan

  13. Thinly slice nectarines and arrange on top of the batter. Bake in preheated oven until cake pulls away from the sides, about 40 minutes. When I did the 2 smaller cakes, they were ready in about 30 minutes. Allow to cool.
  14. Nectarine added to top of cake batter
  15. Slice and serve as is or with cinnamon dusted cream.
  16. cake slice with whipped cream & cinnamon

You're welcome! This actually comes in quite handy with things like nectarines and peaches that don't have their "full" flavour. When baked off, they develop a bit and play well with the cinnamon!
