Chocolate Banana Cream Cake


1/2 cup butter, softened
1-1/4 cups sugar
2 eggs, separated
1-1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3 medium)
1/4 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt


1-1/2 cups cold whole milk
1 – 3.4 oz. package instant banana cream pudding mix
1 – 16 oz. can chocolate frosting
2 medium firm bananas, sliced
3 tablespoons lemon juice


~Preheat oven at 350°.

~In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks; mix well. Beat in the bananas, sour cream, and vanilla.

~Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; add to the creamed mixture and beat well.

~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 for 20 to 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.

~For filling, in a small bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for two minutes. Let stand for two minutes (or until soft-set). Cover and refrigerate until chilled.

~In a small bowl, beat frosting until light and fluffy.

~Place bananas in a small bowl; toss with lemon juice.

~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.
