Banana Cake Divine

Serves: 10

I had some overdone bananas and wanted to make a cake that is moist and full of flavour instead of making the typical banana bread. Adding a cream cheese filling and icing makes this divine.


1 package golden cake mix

3 eggs

3 bananas, mashed

1 cup sour cream

¼ cup oil

1 tbsp vanilla

Cooking spray

1 pack 250 gr softened light Philadelphia cream cheese

½ cup margarine

1 tbsp vanilla

5 cup powdered sugar

¾ cup finely chopped walnut

¾ cup finely chopped pecans

  3. Spray a 9 x 13 inch pan with cooking spray

  4. Pour in batter and bake 30 – 35 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean

  5. Let cake fully cool

  6. In a large bowl add cream cheese, margarine, and vanilla and using electric mixer beat until creamy and smooth

  7. Slowly add powdered sugar and keep beating until all sugar has been incorporated

  8. Place in fridge until ready to spread on cake

  9. Turn cake over on a cutting board and cut in equal halves

  10. Place one piece in serving dish as the bottom layer of cake

  11. Spoon 1/3 of cream cheese mixture onto cake and spread all over

  12. Top with second layer of cake and spread rest of cream cheese all over top and sides

  13. Combine walnuts and pecans together

  14. Using your hands press nuts carefully onto sides of cake and around the top edge

  15. Sprinkle a few nuts on top of cake
