Chocolate Covered Banana Cake

This is the easiest cake you will ever make and it will look very good when you are done. This was made to celebrate Raven's play and it turned out to be a darn good cake if I do say so myself. Well, I guess I just did. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek.


1 yellow cake mix
1 large package cook and serve banana pudding-cooked according to directions on package
1/2 cup package cook and serve banana pudding mix-for cake mix
1 tub chocolate icing

Mix cake according directions but add 1/2 cup cook and serve banana pudding mix to the cake mixture and stir. You will add the pudding dry and stir it in very well. Bake cake in 2-9 inch cake rounds until a toothpick comes out clean. I just followed the baking directions on the cake mix box. While cake is baking make your pudding and let it cool. Cool cake completely, now spread pudding on one layer of cake and top with the other, now place covered in your fridge overnight, this helps keep everything together and helps the last layer to stay in place. Microwave your icing tub for 15-20 seconds and then spread over the top layer. Spread this out so it drips off the sides a little. Put cake back in the fridge for 1 hour. This is really good with whipped cream or ice-cream.
