My boys are absolutely in love with bananas, and so am I!

We absolutely love banana muffins, banana bread and banana pudding. But this recipe takes our obsession with bananas one more step.

My banana pudding cake is a fun way to satisfy all of our cravings in one 10×13 inch pan.


Start this cake by mixing all your cake ingredients together for 3-5 minutes, until they are well combined.

Pour into a greased and floured 10×13 inch pan, and bake at 350 until the top is golden brown and a tester comes out clean.

Let it cool for 5-10 minutes and then poke a bunch of holes all over it.


Prepare a large box of instant banana pudding according to the regular package directions (3 cups of cold milk to one large box of pudding),

Instead of mixing the entire 5 minutes until it is thickened, mix for about 2-3 minutes so its dissolved, but still very pourable.

Pour it all over the cake and spread it around, making sure it gets into all those holes.


Chill the cake until it is cooled completely and the pudding is set.

Next whip up your cream and spread it all over the top.

Crush your cookies, and garnish with the crushed cookies and sliced banana.

    1. I made this for Christmas. I forgot to get the vanilla wafers, but I did have spritz cookies (red with red sugar on top), I crushed them and placed them on top instead. It looked wonderful and tasted great. For Christmas the red was appropriate, it would also be great for Valentine’s Day!

    2. Hi Jenny, thanks for sharing your recipe on The Oh My Heartsie Girls WW this week. We do love a good cake.
      Have a great weekend, Karren @Oh My Heartsie Girl

      1. Well, I’m certainly glad you liked the recipe 🙂 I don’t, however, believe in requiring link backs for being featured. It’s not good blogging karma, from my perspective. I’ve never done it on my Friday Flash Blog linky party — which has been going on for 2+ years now.

    4. We love poke cakes, and your banana cake looks wonderful! I’ll have to try this. Thanks for sharing at Snickerdoodle! 🙂

    5. Bananas are loved in our home as well. This recipe looks divine and the recipe looks straight forward. I look forward to making this recipe soon. Thank you.
