Banana Layer Cake

I am finally at home with my daughter.  No more hospital for now.  To celebrate being home, I am sharing a banana layer cake recipe. 

This is a yummy cake recipe that I adapted from Your Home Based Mom.  After the success with the last banana pecan cake recipe I tried that used a cake mix, I wanted to try this variation.  The cake layers are filled with yummy fresh bananas and banana filling.  Then, it’s all topped off with whipped cream.  This banana layer cake is a light and delicious variation from the usually cream cheese frosting version.  Loved it.  YUMMY!

  • 4 very ripe mashed bananas
  • 1 box white cake mix
  • ¾ cup water
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 3 whole eggs
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  • 1 large box of cooked banana cream pudding not the instant
  • 5 additional bananas


  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 4 heaping Tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • chopped walnuts


  • Mix all the cake ingredients except bananas for 2 minutes, medium speed.  Add bananas and blend well.
  • Bake in 2 greased & floured round cake pans, following baking recommendations on box. Cool on racks. I made the cake the day before.
  • Make pudding according to package directions.  I make it using the microwave directions.  If you do that, watch it on the last 2 minutes.  Min overflowed and made a mess in my microwave.  Let pudding cool
  • Whip whipping cream with powdered sugar and vanilla.
  • Split each cake round in half.  Place one cake on serving dish.  Spread with 1/3 of pudding mixture topped with banana slices.  Repeat with remaining cake, pudding, and bananas. Frost the whole outside of the cake with whip cream & sprinkle chopped walnuts on top.  I used banana slices on top of mine but think the walnuts would have been better.

  1. Hope all is well with your family! I would love to try the Strawberry Sundae flavor! I actually saw these at Target and almost bought them!
    More importantly, that cake looks incredible!
