Banana Pudding Cake!  Great way to use up those ripe bananas!

Overripe bananas usually become banana bread…  Don’t get me wrong, banana bread is wonderful, but sometimes I just want something different!!

This Banana Pudding Cake creates a soft fluffy cake with a delicious sauce!  This cake doesn’t actually contain pudding, a pudding cake usually refers to a cake that bakes up with a yummy sauce underneath… and this one is no exception.  We love this one served warm and topped with ice cream (and sometimes we sneak a little caramel sauce on top too!)

This pudding cake can be made in either a 1.5 or 2 qt casserole dish.

  7. Delicious Banana pudding cake Holly, Love it we are banana loving family. Sure going to make them. Thanks for sharing with Hearth and Soul blog hop, pinning.

  8. Can I use a cake pan instead I don’t have a casserole dish

  9. Can you use frozen bananas?

  10. My concern is because the always seem to contain more water when frozen

  11. Should the middle be runny?

  12. The third banana, is it chopped or mashed when mixed with the hot water?

  13. Just took this out of my oven. Looks and smells delicious. I used a 2-qt. casserole. I have made the chocolate pudding cake and you use an 8×8 or 9×9 pan, But I wouldn’t try using that for this recipe as it raised up pretty high when cooking..

  14. This looks yummy. Was looking for something different to do with my ripe bananas for a quick desert. Will be trying it for the family this weekend,pinning.

  15. We made this today, so happy to find another great way to use up bananas, easy to make but not our favorite. A little to eggy for me and not enough sauce. It is ok but most likely won’t make it onto the list of dessert to make again.

  16. I doubled the recipe and put it in a 9×13 glass pan and I’m afraid the whole thing is going to run over in my oven as the topping I poured on it is right at the rim of the pan and I’m sure the cake will rise right? Eek! Nervous!

  17. Just made this, so delicious! Thanks for the recipe. (Tip, if you use 8×8 pan, use about half of the banana sauce topping)

  18. Just wondering about the consistency, is it more like bread pudding or cake?

  19. Could I add some nuts to the topping? Maybe some pecans? Or do you think that’d mess up the recipe?

  20. What type of flour do you think works best?

  21. If you use self-rising flour, do you still use baking powder?

  22. Going to try for first time. Do you have anything like that for sour cherries
