Wonderful!! Made this for Christmas and it was a hit. We used 2 round pans instead of the springform, and next time will do the same, and even slice those to make a 4 layer. There is plenty of cream filling, it was oozing out with 2 layers. Don't substitute banana pudding for the imitation banana flavor, it is yummy! Big difference!

Couldn't find banana extract, so i just mashed up an extra banana and used that instead. My family went crazy over this.



This cake was wonderful to make and serve. My family is actually very split when it comes to chocolate and fruit. Half of my family loves chocolate while the other prefers fruits. This cake brought them both together! I love the rich taste of the chocolate and the smooth creamy taste of the banana. I may be only cooking for about 5 years now. But this is one of the best cakes I have ever made and ate.
