A super easy cake that goes together in minutes & comes out like it was made from scratch. This Banana Crunch Cake is moist, has an incredible banana flavor, and the most awesomely delicious coconut pecan filling.
Are you someone that lacks confidence in the kitchen? Well, I’m here to tell you that this is a cake anyone can bake. It’s super easy and, what’s even more amazing, is that something so simple and so delicious starts with a boxed cake and a packaged frosting!
I came across my old recipe card files while I was cleaning out my hobby closet and found this incredible recipe from my mom. You know, I don’t even know why I still keep all those 3×5 cards around any more when it is so much easier to put my recipes into the computer. Maybe it’s the nostalgia of it all. Then there are the ones my mom wrote and I just can’t seem to part with those.
The original recipe called for a boxed mix of coconut pecan frosting, which I couldn’t find anywhere, so I decided to try it with the premade canned version. The crunch filling comes out a little moister than the crumb-type mixture it originally had but it just happened to wind up being everyone’s favorite part of the cake. Go figure!
All you need are two bowls, a bundt or tube pan and the 6, yep you read that right – only 6, ingredients for this recipe. Start by mixing the frosting with oats and set aside.
In another bowl, beat the remaining ingredients then add cake mix and stir. Layer in pan and bake.
This cake doesn’t need a glaze or icing as it is rich enough just as it is. I could hardly wait to dive in. And I can tell you it was just as good warm as it was cold. I know, I just couldn’t wait! Yum!
Whether you’re a newbie baker or one that’s been doing it umpteen years, this cake is for you. So what are you waiting for – get baking! And when you find out how delicious this one turns out, you’ll have to give our easy One Bowl Apple Cake and Chocolate Magic Cake a try! Enjoy!
