Giving this a go today! I love that Tammi made it easy with the cake mix but added the bananas and frosting to make to feel homemade!


1 Yellow Cake Mix and all ingredients listed on box
3 incredibly ripe bananas (the darker, the better)
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 cup of sour cream
Ingredients for the frosting

1 package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup of butter, softened
3 cups of confectioners sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract


Step 1

Make cake according to directions on the cake mix box.

Step 2

Add 1 cup of sour cream and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.

Step 3

In a separate bowl, mash the 3 ripe bananas and add the baking soda. Stir to combine. Add mixture to cake batter.

Step 4

Grease baking dish, pour batter in and place in a 350 degree preheated oven. Cooking times vary but approximately 45-55 minutes. Once the cake is thoroughly cooked, remove from the oven and place in the freezer for one hour. This will ensure the cake is perfectly moist.

Cream Cheese Frosting

Add cream cheese, butter and vanilla to mixing bowl and mix on medium speed. Add half of the confectioners sugar at a time and mix until smooth.

Step 5

Remove cake from the freezer and frost the cake. Sprinkle walnuts or pecans on top and garnish with thin banana slices.
