Easy Peasy Banana Pudding Cake

This is one of those cool, yummy, creamy cakes that are so good in the summer, especially after Sunday dinner, a backyard cookout, or to take to a potluck.  I love banana pudding but I don’t always feel like taking the time to make the pudding (I always use homemade rich pudding for my nanner pudd’n (see post  http://kanzensakura.com/2012/07/25/future-mother-…g-nanner-puddn).

This cake really is easy and it really is good.  You can use sugar free pudding and/or light whipped topping to help save on some calories and fat.

Y’all enjoy!!!!

Easy Banana Pudding Cake
1 box yellow or white cake mix
2 small boxes instant banana flavor pudding
1 8 oz. whipped topping, thawed
2 ½ small bananas
2 or more tbs. orange or lemon juice

Make cake as directed in a 9×13 baking dish and allow to cool. With handle of wooden spoon, poke holes all over cake to bottom of pan. Slice bananas and put into bowl and lightly toss with juice. Make pudding as directed on box. Before pudding sets up, pour all over cake making sure to fill up holes. Place drained bananas all over cake and cover with whipped topping. Cover and allow to chill for about an hour. Cake is best eaten within 24 hours. Bananas may brown overnight, but juice should help stop the browning.  Optional:  Garnish with crushed vanilla wafers and/or fresh banana slices.

    I just thought of something. The banana flavor packs, might they be the instant banana powder you buy and mix with milk to make banana pudding? If so, that ‘s easy. 😀

      You got that right! You can do a variation of this that in this neck of the woods, we call a Pig Pickin’ cake. Add a large can of drained mandarin oranges to the cake batter. After the doing the pudding and banana slices, almost drain a large can of crushed pineapple and spread on top of the nanners. Then spread on the cool whip. it is like crazy good. goes down easy. I suggest after it has chlled, get something really good on the tube, grab the baking dish of cake and a spoon, sit down and go to it.
