WWLP Bake: Banana Lemon Torte

Layer upon layer of mix-made banana cake, with fresh fruit slices and creamy lemon frosting in between

Bake cake at 350* for 30 to 35 minutes. Makes 1 nine-inch torte

Fixing time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 package banana cake mix
  • Eggs
  • Water
  • 1 package lemon-flavor creamy frosting mix
  • 2 cups cream for whipping
  • 3 medium-size ripe bananas
  • Lemon Juice

Directions:

  1. Prepare cake mix with eggs and water, bake in 2 greased-and-floured 9-inch layer-cake pans, cool, and remove from pans, following label directions. Split each layer.
  2. Blend frosting mix and cream in a medium-size bowl; beat until fluffy thick.
  3. Peel bananas and slice thin; brush with lemon juice so slices stay bright.
  4. Place one cake layer on a large serving plate; spread with about 1/4 of the frosting mixture; top with 1/4 of the banana slices. Repeat stacking with remaining layers, frosting mixture, and banana slices, arranging banana slices in a pretty pattern on top. Chill torte about an hour before serving. Cut in wedges with a sharp knife.
