Banana Pudding Cake Perfect Tailgating Dessert
One of the things we look for in tailgate recipes is how well it does when it is prepared a day or two ahead of time. This one takes the cake – all puns intended. We actually recommend that this cake be prepared at least one day prior to serving, to allow the flavors to blend. You won’t have to worry about it drying out since it is covered with banana pudding!
I recommend that you wait until the last minute to put the bananas on top – to keep them from turning brown and mushy. I’ve made some similar cakes/cupcakes that have the bananas in the cake batter, but I skipped that since the plan was to serve this the next day. Because no one wants mushy bananas in their cake!
I used a Pyrex clear baking dish with a lid and carrying case to allow for easy transport, to and from the RV and around the tailgate. If nothing else, the lid is good for keeping the dog out of the food! Or being able to stack things on top of the cake in the small RV fridge! If you don’t have one of these baking sets, I highly recommend it for tailgating!

“I love banana pudding!”
“You know it’s a cake, right?”
“Love that it is served cold, with that little crunch (from the Nilla Wafers on top)”
