How to Make Banana Pudding Cake

Apparently I can’t get away with anything with you guys. Sure, I’m a tease and I post pictures of what I made and promise the recipes soon, but this recipe?

I barely made if off my Facebook Page alive when I teased this one.

You wanted this cake and you wanted it NOW.

I totally get that and this is why we all get along so well. I’m glad we have reached an understanding now. I better post my cake recipes right way or you’ll hurt me. Crystal clear.

You know what? You should have gotten all excited about this recipe. I mean, Banana pudding cake? After my pistachio pudding cake that everyone loved it’s no wonder you were forming a lynch mob when I said this recipe was coming next week. Add in the cream cheese icing and it all becomes clear.

This is one freaking amazing cake.

The outside becomes slightly crunchy when you let it cool, giving way to an inside that is so banana-in-your-mouth awesome that you can hardly stand it.

I’m not sure what I just wrote there. The banana made me loopy. Was that even English?Banana Pudding Cake With Cream Cheese Glaze from @kitchenmagpie

Then that glaze.

I hemmed and I hawed trying to think of what I wanted to top this with. I usually don’t pair cream cheese with banana but for some reason it seemed so darn right that I had to do it.

So I done went and did it and thank goodness I did because it is simply spectacular.

Just when I think that nothing can ever top my other cakes, I go and find a new flavor. You all know how crazy I am about fake banana flavor, it’s an obsession. So when you add the fresh banana to the pudding mix flavor of the cake?

Words fail, people, they totally fail. You are just going to have to make this baby yourself and then let me know what you think.

Now, if you haven’t already, check out my Pistachio pudding cake as well, it is seriously fabulous.


Make sure you don’t miss the most popular cake on my website, my Homemade Lemon Pudding Cake. This is the best lemon cake you will ever eat, I kid you not.


Happy Friday my dears! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Love you more than banana pudding cake,

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 1/2 cups of white granulated sugar

  5. Combine the milk, oil and vanilla extract in a large measuring cup or bowl.
  6. Starting with the dry ingredients, alternate pouring a third of the wet and dry ingredients into the bowl, incorporating thoroughly after each addition. You will end on the wet ingredients. Mix on medium speed for 2 minutes after the last addition.
  7. Pour the cake batter into the prepared Bundt pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  8. Invert the cake onto a baking rack to cool.
  9. Mix together the glaze ingredients until smooth & drizzle over the cake, once it's completely cool.
  10. Top with fresh banana slices right before serving and enjoy!

  1. Yes, what’s the amount for the oil? The amount it says is AcA…A. Looks delicious, can’t wait to make it!

  2. Could the baking powder measurement be incorrect? I made this today and it was a disaster. It overflowed the pan, made a mess in my oven.

    Your recipe, Banana pudding cake with cream cheese glaze. How much Canola oil is needed? There’s a mistake for the amount.

  4. I am super late, but I made this for my sister’s bridal shower. It was a hit! Everyone loved it! I tried to rate it 5 stars but the website wouldn’t let me for some reason!

    • Mark Wicklund Reply

      Yup I usually butter and flour a bundt which I should have. Used bargain brand spray. I’ll learn lol

    I have the banana cake in the oven and watching it over flow in the center.  :-(    Followed directions and used the correct pan.  Glad I made a day early.   I just hope it comes out anyway.  It smelled so good./

  10. All in all, a very good recipe however, the lemon juice in the frosting detracted from the “banananess” of the cake. Next time I will either leave it out or use some banana extract. 

  11. Its says to use the cook and serve banana pudding I was just checking to make sure this is correct usually in most recipes it’s the instant pudding ….just wanted to double check,thank you.

  12. The Glaze recipe says “1 confectioners sugar”.  One what? Cup or Lb? or box?  I love the way it doesn’t run all the way to the plate.  It’s just what I am looking for.
