This cake does not disappoint- it tastes just like banana pudding, but with the impressive height and presentation of a layer cake! Keep it in mind for birthdays, family gatherings, potlucks, and well… any reason at all!
We decided that we wanted big banana flavor in our banana pudding cake, and so unlike some banana pudding cake recipes that call for a yellow cake, we decided to go with our favorite homemade banana cake recipe instead.
Our vanilla cream filling is based on a “mock mousse” recipe that we love, and it couldn’t be easier– instant vanilla pudding + heavy cream whipped into a delightfully light and creamy filling. It is so quick to make and PERFECT for this recipe, as it really brings in the flavor and texture of banana pudding that we love so much!
