Strawberry Banana Cake

Alicia .


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!

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


1Bake Cake according to its directions for two 9-inch cake pans and let cool.
2While 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.
3Place one cake down, if top is not flat, carefully use a bread knife to cut an even, flat top.
4Layer the sliced banana on top of the first cake so it completely covers the cake, using all the banana.
5Place the second cake on top of the layered banana and make sure cake edges are flush.
6Ice the cake with the strawberry-banana icing and chill to set.
7An optional step, because I've been advised its not a cake without sprinkles, give it about a handful of rainbow sprinkles across the top. :)
8Hope you enjoy!
