  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
  • 1 (3.5 ounce) package instant banana pudding mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups milk


  • 1 ½ cups white sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 ½ teaspoons banana extract

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour two 9×13 inch pans. Set them aside.

Step 2: In a large bowl, stir together the cake mix and instant pudding. Beat in the eggs and milk.

Step 3: Divide and pour the batter evenly between the two pans.

Step 4: Bake for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the centers come out clean. While the cake is baking, make the filling.
