How to make Banana Pudding Cake
Well folks, it looks as if we have a doozy of a snowstorm arriving here dreckly so I am posting early just in case we loose power which we are praying we don’t. I had planned to fix this cake yesterday but since our power went out I never got around to it as I was more worried about getting supper on the table. I fixed this up before breakfast this morning, at least we will have cake to eat throughout our “blockbuster” snowstorm as they are calling it. This is a really easy and good cake that has all the flavors of a banana pudding. I only frosted half of our cake with a little store bought butter cream frosting as Don doesn’t care for frosting so his side of the cake is naked. Honestly, it really doesn’t need frosting, but I like the extra sweetness so it’s a good thing I’ve got some plane ole potato chips handy to eat with my side.
I currently have ice covering all my windows on the front side of the house and I can’t see anything going on in town. It’s really nice to wash up the dishes looking out over the town seeing all the comings and goings, which in all honesty isn’t much as it’s a really small town. Looking out the backside this morning I was surprised to see a few deer running along the back, they need to find a warm place to hunker down with this storm coming I reckon. Nannie Polly loved looking out her kitchen window when washing dishes too with the exception of when there was a pouring rain storm that blocked her view. I’ll never forget the time one Summer that she had all the windows open and I was out in the carport with her helping to sort canning jars and whatnot and it was just pouring the rain. She nor I didn’t think about the windows being open until we walked back into the house. Y’all her famous “shht” she was known for saying was coming out faster than she could catch a breath. I got the bedroom windows shut and she headed to the kitchen where rain had blown in plum to the table. Everything was soaked and we used up every towel we could find to sop up the mess. She and I talked about that very day for many years to come, even after her mind started to slip away there were times when I think she remembered that moment as she would snicker just a little when I would tell her about it. Easy banana pudding cake.
Ingredients Banana Pudding Cake
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 3.5 oz. box instant banana pudding & pie filling
- 4 large eggs, beaten
- 1 C. water

In a bowl, whisk together the cake mix and dry pudding mix. Whisk in the eggs, water and oil until combined and lump free. Stir in the bananas until combined. Grease a 9×13 cake pan with a little cooking spray and pour in the batter. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool completely. You can leave it plain or frost if desired.
