I love this recipe. It's so easy. I read reviews and added another banana for more banana taste. I, also, used banana creme pudding instead of vanilla. I used thinly sliced almonds instead of pecans because that is what I had on hand. Oh my gosh!! My grandchildren were thrilled to wake up Saturday morning with this amazing smell wafting through the house. I would think many different cake mixes, fruits, and puddings could be substituted...mmmmmm pumpkin added instead of bananas. It could be endless depending on one's imagination.

Amazingly easy and so yummy! I just wish it had more of a banana flavor to it but it didn't take long to disappear in this house. I made this again and added a extra banana and did not hurt it at all.
