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!

How To Make strawberry banana cake

  • 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. :)
