TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling
MAKES: 16 servings


  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant banana or vanilla pudding mix
  • 1-1/2 cups 2% milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar


  1. Line two greased 15x10x1-in. baking pans with waxed paper and grease the paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mix, milk and eggs. Beat on low speed for 30 seconds; beat on medium for 2 minutes.
  3. Spread batter into prepared pans. Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the centers come out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before inverting onto wire racks to cool completely. Gently peel off waxed paper.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, whisk flour and milk until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; cover and cool to room temperature.
  5. In the bowl of a heavy-duty stand mixer, cream the butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Add milk mixture; beat on high for 10-15 minutes or until fluffy.
  6. Place one cake on a large cutting board; spread top with frosting. Top with remaining cake; sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Cut into slices. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 16 servings.
