a serving of Banana Pudding Cake with ice cream on a white plate with bananas and a casserole dish in the background

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.

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

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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..

    1. I agree, I do find if you defrost them the water leaks out onto the plate and the bananas have seemed to work fine for me in recipes.

    1. I’m sure a smaller pan (such as 8×8 or 9×9) would work. You may need to adjust the baking time very slightly.

  6. 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.

  7. What a great dessert, it looks yummy! Thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and have a great weekend!
    Come Back Soon!
