What You'll Need:
1 package Chocolate Cake Mix
1 package Banana Cake Mix
1 package Whipped Topping Mix
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 cup chilled water
1 ripe, peeled, pureed banana
Yields: Two 4-layer cakes (each cake yields 20 slices)
- Prepare Chocolate and Banana Cake Mixes according to package instructions and bake in prepared 8" cake rounds. Each mix will yield 2 - 8" rounds.
- When cooled, split cakes in half evenly, yielding 2 layers per round.
- In a mixing bowl, combine cocoa and Whipped Topping Mix and mix well. Add chilled water and stir with a whisk until incorporated. Add this mixture to a stand mixer and whip 6-7 minutes on high speed. Gently fold pureed banana into the whipped cocoa topping until well mixed.
- Frost the cakes immediately with the cocoa-banana topping. (You will alternate chocolate and banana layers). Chill until serving time.
