  • Beat cake mix, water, eggs, and oil together in a bowl using a electric mixer until batter is smooth and well mixed, about 2 minutes. Mix bananas, cinnamon, and baking soda together in a separate bowl; stir into batter. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool cake completely.

  • Beat milk and pudding mix together in a bowl until smooth; fold in whipped topping until frosting is smooth. Spread frosting onto cooled cake.

Very nice quick recipe, good flavor. The only draw back is that no one makes a cake mix in a 18.25 oz package, the largest I could find was 16.5oz so I reduced the water by 2 tablespoons Read More

This recipe was amazing! I followed it exactly, and it turned out perfectly! For my oven, 35 minutes at 350 was perfect. I used the banana cream instant pudding as listed, but you could use whatever kind of pudding you like (or your own favorite frosting recipe). I took it to school for a potluck breakfast, and it went very fast! I will definitely be making this again. Read More

I was looking for something easy to bring to a social function that also used up as many bananas as possible (I put them in my freezer when they get too ripe and there are DOZENS in there). I was going to bring two of these with me, but they smelled so amazing while they were baking that we ate one as soon as it cooled. I absolutely LOVED this, even though I'm usually a from-scratch cook. I'm about to try a modified version with canned pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla pudding in the frosting to go with the turkey I'm roasting today (two days post-Thanksgiving). I bet that's delicious, too. Read More

Nice and easy cake recipe. Using a box mix is a good shortcut. The frosting tastes nice and light. The only thing that you sacrifice with a box mix is the ability to substitute monk fruit sweetener for the sugar. I try to minimize my sugar intake. Other than that it tastes terrific, it's quick and easy to make. Read More
