Kahlua Banana Brunch Cake

1 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
3-1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium)
1/2 cup Kahlua
4 large eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3/4 cup flaked coconut
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
Optional: sifted powdered sugar

Grease 10 in. tube pan well. Preheat oven to 350 F. Cream butter and
sugar until fluffy. Beat in flour, 1/2 cup at a time, with remaining
ingredients except coconut and nuts. Beat on low speed until mixture
is well blended. On medium speed, beat 2 min., scraping bowl as you
beat. Stir in coconut and nuts. Turn into prepared pan. Bake 45
to 50 min., or until golden brown. Remove from oven; let stand 10
min. Invert on cake rack; remove pan. When fully cooled, dust with
powdered sugar, if desired.

Serves 10-12.
