    1. Cake: Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Spray a 22x33cm cake tin with cooking spray.
    2. Mix cake mix, water, eggs, and oil in a bowl until just moistened; pour cake batter into prepared baking dish.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 34 to 38 minutes. Cool in the baking dish for 2 to 3 minutes.
    4. Pudding: Stir milk and pudding mix together in another bowl until smooth. Let pudding rest until it begins to thicken slightly, but is not fully set, about 2 minutes.
    5. Poke several holes into the cake using the handle of a wooden spoon. Be sure to poke all the way through to the bottom of the cake.
    6. Pour pudding over cake and spread evenly, making sure to fill each hole completely. Chill cake in the refrigerator until cake is cooled and pudding is set, about 2 hours.
    7. To Serve: Spread whipped topping over cake and sprinkle with crushed vanilla wafers just before serving.

    Absolutely easy to make! I love this recipe but I added my own twist to it between the Banana Pudding and Whip Cream  -  24 Oct 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a hit at my small pool party! I will make this again very soon!  -  30 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this cake and the family loved it! I did make the pudding on the stove top as I couldn't find instant banana pudding. And I whipped the cream instead of cool whip. I also added sliced bananas on top,of the cake before the whipped cream. These changes added time and steps to the recipe but I think it was worth it. I prefer fresh whipped cream to cool whip. I would make this again with maybe coconut or white chocolate pudding.  -  19 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
