I first saw this recipe on fb and when I made it I did some changes. I added the bananas to the cake mix,the heavy cream, cream cheese, and vanilla to the topping.Instead of 2 cups milk I used 1 1/2 in the pudding. Sure hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

    NOTE: You can add drained crushed pineapple to the cake or topping for an extra treat. If added to topping make sure it is very dry,I put it on a paper towel,so your topping want be runny. Hope you enjoy this recipe.
