  • Make cake: Sift together flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Combine bananas, oil, walnuts, pineapple, and eggs in another large bowl; mix well. Stir flour mixture into banana mixture until combined. Pour batter into the prepared pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of each pan comes out clean, about 1 hour. Allow cakes to cool on wire racks.

  • Meanwhile, make frosting: Beat together confectioners' sugar, cream cheese, butter, and vanilla in a medium bowl until smooth.

  • Evenly spread frosting on the middle, sides, and top of cooled cake.
