Homemade Banana Pudding Cake

As someone who loves both banana pudding & banana cake, I couldn’t be more excited about this AMAZING Banana Pudding Cake recipe! Ultra moist banana cake layers are filled with a light vanilla cream filling, layered with thinly sliced bananas and crushed Vanilla Wafers.

Ingredients

FOR THE BANANA CAKE
2 cups (400g) granulated sugar
3 cups (342g) cake flour
1 tablespoon baking powder (12g)
1/2 tsp baking soda (3g)
1/2 teaspoon (3g) salt
12 tablespoons (170g) unsalted butter, softened
1 1 /2 cup mashed bananas (about 3 bananas)
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons (8g) vanilla extract
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups (363g) buttermilk

FOR THE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
2 sticks ,1 cup, (226g) unsalted butter, slightly softened
2 (8oz) packages cream cheese (total weight 452g) I use full fat cream cheese. Using reduced fat or the spreadable cream cheese will cause the frosting to be too soft. Soften very slightly.
1/2 teaspoon salt (2g) optional – it will cut the sweetness, popcorn salt is best to use because it is fine and dissolves faster
2 teaspoons (8 g) vanilla extract
6 to 6 1/2 cups (690g to 747g) powdered sugar

FOR THE VANILLA CREAM FILLING
1 small box instant Vanilla pudding (3.9 oz/96g) We used Jello- Brand
2 c. (464g) heavy cream or whipping cream (stir in a little more if recipe is too thick)

FOR THE SWEETENED WHIPPED CREAM (TOP OF CAKE)
1 cup (240g) heavy cream
1/4 (29g) cup powdered sugar
1 (4g) teaspoon vanilla

VANILLA WAFERS AND SLICED BANANAS FOR FILLING
1 box Vanilla Wafers (we used about 20 coarsely crushed cookies in filling, plus additional for crumb border and cookies around the top. Adjust to your liking)
Thinly sliced bananas (we used two in the filling- adjust to your liking)
