INSTRUCTIONS
Cake:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 3-9 inch round cake pans with parchment paper and spray with nonstick Bakers Spray. 
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt to combine. Set aside.
  • In a separate medium mixing bowl, using a handheld electric mixer, mix the banana, sugar, and brown sugar until combined.
  • Add oil, eggs, sour cream, and vanilla and mix until combined and the mixture is smooth.
  • With the mixer on low, gradually add the flour mixture to the banana mixture and mix, just until flour disappears into the batter (do not overmix).
  • Pour batter evenly into prepared pans. Bake 30- 38 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes, turn out onto a cooling rack and cool completely. 
Pudding Layer:
  • In a medium mixing bowl, using a handheld electric mixer, mix together the pudding mix and cream cheese until smooth. With the mixer set on low, gradually add the cream and beat until the mixture is very thick.
Frosting:
  • In a medium mixing bowl, beat the butter until it's light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the pudding mix and beat until combined.
  • With the mixer on low, gradually add the powdered sugar. Beat until well combined and the mixture is smooth.
  • Fold in thawed frozen whipped topping until evenly mixed.
