No one will believe you made our easy Banana Bungalow cake yourself! This eye-catcher looks as good as it tastes! Boasting a delicious combo of chocolate, bananas and whipped topping, this one is pure fun to make and eat!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (18.25-ounce) package chocolate cake mix, prepared according to the package directions
  • 1 (16-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
  • 3 large bananas, peeled
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 10- x 15-inch rimmed baking sheet or jelly roll pan with cooking spray and sprinkle lightly with flour.
  2. Pour prepared cake batter into pan and bake 22 to 24 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  3. Allow to cool then invert onto a large platter. Trim 1/8 inch off edges all around cake then cut crosswise into 3 equal sections, each measuring 5 inches x 10 inches, and leave in place.
  4. Reserve 1 cup whipped topping for frosting. Spread some remaining whipped topping over middle section of cake, completely covering it. Lay 2 bananas parallel to each other over whipped topping. Spoon more whipped topping over bananas then place third banana on top. Cover with remaining whipped topping.
  5. Gently bring up 2 side pieces of cake from outer edges to form bungalow roof. Frost cake with reserved whipped topping then grate cake trimmings over whipped topping to garnish.
  6. Refrigerate at least 1 hour then slice and serve.

Made this for work collegues, great success, but very big ... will reduce ingredients by half next time.

This looks and sounds delicious. Can't wat to make it.

Since my husband is a chocolate and banana lover, I'm going to make this real soon!

This sounds marvelous. Real whipped cream would be the way to go. Instead of grated cake, you could use jimmies or colored candies. Even make a little chimney out of red hots and whipped cream.

just a thought, take some of the whipped topping enough for the sides n top. Mix strawberry extract with the whipped topping to put on the sides, the middle, add banana extract with the whipped topping and add the bananas in the center.

Not been a chocolate lover, I would think I could use any type of cake mix. I think a spice or yellow or what every you like maybe berry =..=

Can't wait to try it. Hope to lower calories by using low cal whipped topping

Thanks can't wait to try this.

I agree with you 100%. I cant wait to make this xcept, im going to make my own whipped cream, using heavy whipping cream and I think some Baileys Irish Cream mixed in to the whipped cream would be delish.
