Banana Fudge Layer Cake

Rating: 3.4 5 Comments

Chocolate and bananas are easily a favorite when combined with our Duncan Hines Golden Yellow Cake mix. Garnish this Banana Fudge Layer Cake as you desire…maybe banana slices, dipped in lemon juice for freshness, and arranged in an appealing pattern?


  1. Preheat oven to 350 ºF. Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. Combine cake mix, water, eggs and oil in large bowl. Beat at low speed with electric mixer until moistened. Beat at medium speed 2 minutes. Stir in bananas. Pour into prepared pans.
  3. Bake 28 to 31 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool in pans 15 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely.
  4. Fill and frost cake with frosting. Garnish as desired. For pictured above serving suggestion, place a layer of cake, then ice with chocolate icing, then a thick layer of the sliced bananas, then repeat. Top with a thin layer of whipped topping and chocolate shavings.

I think everyone is missing the suggestion to add fresh banana slices in the recipe's description. This is probably where the sliced bananas came from. They are over and above the mashed bananas that go in the cake mix.

I made this for a dinner party last week and my friends thought it was bought at a bakery. It tasted that good. I told them that I made it from scratch. ;) They think that I'm a star.
