Going Ape Over Banana Pudding Cake

I love banana cake, banana pudding and I knew eventually I would make a cake using the banana desserts I love.  I admit, I am Going Ape Over Banana Pudding Cake!  

Welcome to March Madness!

Cake Ingredients:

 3 cups flour 

1 teaspoon salt 

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 

1 teaspoon baking soda 

2 cups sugar 

1 cup of vegetable oil 

1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 

3 eggs, extra large or jumbo 

6 large ripe bananas, roughly mashed, you should have some chunks

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Prepare the pans with grease and flour, I use a professional spray product similar to Bakers Joy. Line both pans with parchment paper and also coat parchment paper with with grease and flour or spray. 

Whisk dry ingredients together.  Add oil, vanilla, eggs and mashed bananas. Do not over mix. Divide batter between two pans and bake for 30 -35 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.  Cool completely before filling and frosting. 

 Banana Mousse Filling:

 1 8 ounce block of cream cheese 

 1 box of instant banana cream pudding

 8 ounces of heavy whipping cream 

In a mixing bowl that has been chilled for 30 minutes, beat cold cream cheese until smooth. Add banana pudding  and blend. Pour in heavy whipping cream and blend until thick. Refrigerate until you are ready to fill your cake. 

 Whip Cream frosting Ingredients:

 2 – 8 ounce blocks of cream cheese 

2 teaspoons of vanilla 

 12 ounces of heavy whipping cream 

3 cups of powdered sugar, or more if you want a sweeter whip cream taste

1 box of vanilla wafers

In a chilled mixing bowl, beat cold cream cheese until smooth. Add 2 teaspoons of vanilla and pour in heavy whipping cream. Beat until stiff peaks form. Add powder sugar. Frost cake and add vanilla wafer cookies from top to bottom all over the sides of the cake. Keep cake and any leftovers refrigerated.

    Where do I get those cute little monkey with a banana cookies????

    • Thank you Alice! They are actually little monkeys holding bananas and they are made by Wilton. The cookies on the side of the cake are vanilla wafers, the regular size, not the minis.
