Blog Hop – Homemade Banana Pudding Cake

August 14, 2011 · 27 comments

When I was a child, the theme in my room was Snoopy.  I had a comforter, stuffed toys, lamp, knick-knacks, clothes, stool, piggy bank (snoopy bank,) etc…you name I had it!  I even had a slushy maker that was Snoopy’s house, and I believe I may still have that.  So my childhood Birthday memory would be the Snoopy themed cakes.  The one shaped as Snoopy doing a happy dance was my most favorite.

Every Birthday, my mom would ask me, “what kind of cake do you want me to make for you?”   The answer was always, banana cake!

There are wonderful memories I have of my birthdays, but the cake seems to be the best memory.  I mean each toy, stuffed animal, special knick-knack, was lovely…..BUT let’s be real- cake, cake love, banana love!!!

Something about that moist, delicious cake that makes me break out in a happy dance!

While the cake was baking today, I was getting soooooo giddy!  Another happy dance happened tonight!

I adapted the recipe from several different ones I looked at.  So I am happy to say that for a first shot at a fun cake, creating my version of a childhood memory was successful!

Who wants to name all the main Snoopy characters?  *Raises Hand*… Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Sally, Peppermint Patty, Marcy, Schroeder, Woodstock, and of course Snoopy!  {AND no I did not look them up!}  I had them on my plate, bowl, and cup growing up, I ate off them everyday!

Okay, okay, on to cake love!

I am excited to be hosting a cake love blog hop with some beautiful food bloggers.  Because of my travels yesterday, well AGAIN I am late for the party….

Homemade Banana Pudding Cake

1/2 cup salted butter

2 eggs

1 cup mashed banana

1 cup white sugar

1/2 cup banana pudding

2 1/4 cups cake flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp vanilla

Directions-

Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.

In medium bowl- cream together sugar, egg, and butter.  Then add mashed banana, vanilla, and pudding.

In separate bowl – mix flour, baking powder, and baking soda.  Add flour mixture to wet mixture.

In bundt pan, grease with butter, and dust lightly with flour. Evenly add batter to pan, bake for about 35-40 minutes depending on oven.

I felt like I was taken back in time with this cake, it is moist and delicious!

Note – Next time I will teach myself how to make homemade banana pudding.  For this recipe I used an instant pudding, but used almond milk instead of regular milk to mix the the pudding.

    What a cutie, baby Terra :) I love how you know all the Snoopie characters by heart. Same happens to me with Sailor Moon, I was obsessed with those girls! I’ve never been able to eat a banana [too heavy on my stomach] but I do appreciate a slice of a good banana cake. This looks delicious :)
