Banana Bungalow


Chocolate, bananas and whipped topping are the tasty trio of flavors and textures that add up to this fun and great-looking cake. We call it Banana Bungalow because of its shape. You’ll call it your favorite dessert recipe!

Serves: 10

  • 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


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 10 x 15-inch rimmed baking sheet or jelly roll pan with nonstick cooking spray and sprinkle lightly with flour.
  2. Pour the prepared cake batter into pan and bake 22 to 24 minutes, or until a wooden 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" x 10", 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.
