I made this dessert for my mother’s birthday dinner and everyone really liked it. I was not able to find a small box of yellow cake mix so I substituted a small package of Martha White’s Buttered Pecan Cake Mix. Also, I could not find either fresh peaches or nectarines because they are out of season so I substituted mango.

I was surprised to see no reviews for this dessert as it is my husband's favourite (minus the banana). It is very easy (especially since I use the store bought pound cake) and turns out great every time. In fact when I bring this to potlucks now, I am usually asked to bring two - one for everyone and one for the kitchen staff, otherwise there is none left when they get around to eating :-)
