Reviews for Banana Flip Cake
"I was very disappointed in this recipe . Partly my fault because I didn't have any pans the right size so I baked the cake in two square cake pans which made the cake too thick. I cake itself had a good taste.I didn't like the frosting at all . I will try this again with the right size pans and maybe try a different frosting I know there are several different recipe s for banana flips maybe I'll have better luck next time."
"What a fun cake to make for the kids! Of course use the banana flavored pudding.( Cut the sarcastic comments, people, they aren't witty, just childish.)You can add a wee bit of dry banana pudding mix to the cake mix, too. Better than the old banana flip!"
"Am I to assume that if you want the banana flavor you use he banana pudding.. I don't see anything else that would make this a Banana Flip cake ?????"
