Strawberry Banana Cake

This is a really simplified version of a recipe I was given, using a boxed cake mix instead of building up from scratch, which I rarely have time for.

It can be easily adjusted to make great cupcakes!

Sliced strawberries and bananas make a great topper for this cake as well!

Ingredients

1 box
your favorite brand strawberry cake mix
3 medium
bananas
3/4 c
chopped pecans (or your other favorite nut)
1 can(s)
strawberry icing
handful of sprinkles (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Bake Cake according to its directions for two 9-inch cake pans and let cool.
2
While the cake cools, chop 2 of the bananas into thin slices and set aside. Mash the last banana and mix well with the cake icing.
3
Place one cake down, if top is not flat, carefully use a bread knife to cut an even, flat top.
4
Layer the sliced banana on top of the first cake so it completely covers the cake, using all the banana.
5
Place the second cake on top of the layered banana and make sure cake edges are flush.
6
Ice the cake with the strawberry-banana icing and chill to set.
7
An optional step, because I've been advised its not a cake without sprinkles, give it about a handful of rainbow sprinkles across the top. :)

Hope you enjoy!
