Hehad Banana Cake a few weeks ago and somehow remembered it and decided that wasthe treat he wanted. Of course, I could have told him there was no banana cakeand moved on. But, since I love to bake and had not made a banana cake in awhile, I thought “Why not?!”This recipe is inspired by the Banana Cake Recipe from my trusty Better Homesand Gardens cookbook. I made a few changes and added a banana pudding fillingand cream cheese frosting. Yum!

Banana Pudding

* While the cake is baking, add the banana pudding mix and cold milk into a bowl and mix with a hand mixer for 2 minutes on medium speed. Place in refrigerator until ready to use. Most instant puddings only take about 5 minutes to set but you want to keep the pudding cold until you are ready to use it.

Cake Assembly and Frosting

* This frosting needs to be cold in order for the frosting to go on well and I would recommend keeping the cake cold until ready to serve. * I used a 6″ cake pan and made 3 layers with the amount of batter that is made with this recipe. * If you are going to substitute butter for the shortening in the frosting, make sure it is room temp when mixing with the room temp cream cheese so that they cream together nicely. After achieving the consistency and sweetness you want, place the frosting in the fridge so it has a chance to firm up before frosting the cake.
