Banana Pudding Layer Cake
But everybody knows we like to keep things easy and sometimes when your doing some fancy shmanchy decorating and making layer cakes and making fillings and frostings using a cake mix just comes in handy. There are very few ingredients in the cake, pudding and frosting. You can change things up if you like and use a cream cheese frosting on this cake if you like also. It really is delicious and gives the cake a nice tangy yet sweet flavor. It goes really well with the banana pudding. I’m thinking that once you try this cake you will be making it often. It has become a go to for us. Make it as is or change up a few of the ingredients to suit your tastes. That is how we come up with most recipes by changing things up. When it comes to baking we always follow the recipes as they are at first but then we pretty much make them our own. That’s what cooking and baking is all about! This Banana Pudding Layer Cake is everything you want in a cake. Super moist and scrumptious! You will LOVE this cake. Using a large mixing bowl, beat together the banana pudding and milk for about 5 minutes. Mix in the Sweetened condensed milk until smooth then mix in cream cheese until smooth. Using the cake frosting, pipe a thick outline around the edge of the cake. Pour the caramel sauce into the squeeze bottle and squeeze it along the top edge of the cake that way the sauce drips down along the sides. Place in the fridge for 1 hour to allow the frosting to harden before cutting into slices and enjoying.
We use Glad containers all the time when delivering food to those in need. Whether it is to a mom who recently had a baby, a thank you gift for teachers or to deliver treats to our local firemen, they work great! I was having one of those days last week, where everything seemed to be going wrong. I’ve found that the best thing I can do on those days, is serve others. My love language is baking, so I decided to bake a batch of these strawberry cookies and it turned my whole day around. My daughter also loves being in the kitchen baking with me and delivering treats. In fact she begs to every day! She has such a big heart and it makes me so happy. We have our dedicated baking day on the weekend though and I cherish that time together.
For these strawberry cookies, all you need is a box of strawberry cake mix, vegetable oil and eggs. Then if you’d like to make them a little fancier so white dipping chocolate and sprinkles. Simply mix, bake and allow to cool. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper and set aside. Combine the cake mix, oil and eggs in a large box. Stir together until combined. If you have the time, refrigerate the dough for 15-20 minutes (it will make it a little easier to work with, since it is sticky). Using a medium scoop or spoon, scoop the dough onto the prepared baking mat. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until the cookies are set. You don’t want them to brown. Allow to cool on the pan for a couple minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack. Once cooled, melt the chocolate and then dip half the cookie into the chocolate. Lay cookies onto a wax paper and add sprinkles if desired. Connect with Glad on Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. Glad is making giving easier.
Creamy chocolate mousse, melt in your mouth salted peanut butter mousse and salted caramel sauce. All these amazingly amazing things are combined together to create a wonderful cake that everyone will love. There’s a bit of work involved but you can make the crust and caramel sauce the day before and the mousse doesn’t take much time to prepare. Also, it’s almost fool-proof because there’s no baking involved (except for the crust but there’s no way you can screw it up). It’s very rich but has almost no flour so it won’t make you feel heavy. It’s best served cold so make sure you keep it in the fridge. I also froze two slices and served them almost completely frozen – it tasted like an ice cream pie! Anyway, don’t count the calories, a real good cake is made of calories.
