If you’ve been around this blog or just poke around a bit, you know that I always bake recipes from scratch.
Almost always. Because this is going to be my first recipe that’s kind of cheaty.
I feel like Mc Cheaty right now, because I’m going to throw down a recipe that calls for Betty. And pudding mix. (Gasp!).
Rest assured, I’m first and foremost a from-scratch girl. But I had to relent and share this recipe. This is one of those classics in my footlong recipe binder that has been there since an old friend gave it to me, and I can’t (won’t) do away with it. It’s just that good, and here it is…
This Banana Pudding Cake is dreamy and luscious! It's extremely moist, tender, and boasts huge banana flavor. This cake is perfect for brunch and dessert alike. It's delish without any icing, but feel free to add your own if you wish!

  • 2 very, very ripe medium bananas, roughly mashed
  • 1 box yellow or butter-yellow cake mix (Betty Crocker Super Moist turns out best)
  • 1 (4-serving size) package Jello banana cream instant pudding powder
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • Optional Simple Icing: 1 TB warm milk + 1 cup powdered sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350F, with rack on lower-middle position. Grease and flour a bundt pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix and instant pudding powder. Whisk to loosen any lumps. Add eggs, water, and oil. Whisk just until incorporated. Using rubber spatula, fold in bananas just until combined; don't over-mix.
  3. Pour into prepared bundt pan, lightly shaking to even out the batter.
  4. Bake 35-45 minutes, or just until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few tender crumbs attached. Don't over bake.
  5. Cool completely in pan on rack. Once cool, use very thin knife to separate cake from pan edges, if needed. Invert and remove cake.
  6. Optional: Garnish with powdered sugar, sliced bananas, whipped cream, or fresh fruit. If desired, whisk together Simple Icing ingredients and drizzle over cake.
