For the Buttercream Frosting:

In a large mixing bowl, whip the unsalted butter until it achieves a creamy texture.
Gradually introduce the confectioners’ sugar, mixing it manually to prevent a powdery mess. This frosting is sweet, so adjust the amount of sugar to your taste.
Once all lumps are smoothed out, and the sugar is well-integrated, add the milk and vanilla extract.
Whip the mixture for about five minutes until it becomes smooth and fluffy. Voila, your buttercream frosting is ready!
For the Cake Mix:

Preheat your oven to the temperature specified on the cake mix box. Usually, it’s around 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a cake pan.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the vanilla cake mix, vanilla pudding mix, eggs, vegetable oil, water, and all-purpose flour. Mix until well combined.

Pour the cake batter into the prepared cake pan.

Bake according to the instructions on the cake mix box, usually about 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Allow the cake to cool completely in the pan.

To Assemble the Banana Pudding Cake:

Once the cake has cooled, slice it horizontally into two equal layers.

Spread a layer of the buttercream frosting on top of one cake layer.

Place sliced bananas over the frosting.

Add the second cake layer on top.

Frost the top and sides of the entire cake with the remaining buttercream frosting.

Optionally, garnish with banana slices or crushed vanilla wafers for added flavor and texture.

Enjoy your delectable Banana Pudding Cake, a nostalgic treat with a twist!
