Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks. Beat in the bananas, sour cream and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture and mix well.
  2. In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold into batter. Transfer to two greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. For filling, in a small bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
  4. In a small bowl, beat frosting until light and fluffy. Place bananas in a small bowl; toss with lemon juice.
  5. Place one cake layer on a serving plate; spread with 3 tablespoons frosting. Stir pudding; spread half over the frosting. Top with half of the bananas and the remaining cake layer. Repeat frosting, filling and banana layers. Frost sides and decorate top edge of cake with remaining frosting. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 12 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 12, 2011

I made this for my dad's birthday, and I ended up liking it way better than I thought I would, not being a big banana fan. The cake is super moist, the filling is tasty, and I think it has just the right amount of chocolate flavor, although when I make it again I'll make my own chocolate frosting. Canned frosting is handy, but homemade tastes so much better.
