Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Beat first 5 ingredients with mixer on low speed just until moistened, stopping frequently to scrape bottom and side of bowl. Beat on medium speed 2 min. Pour into greased and floured 13x9-inch pan.
  • Bake 35 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely.
  • Beat cream cheese and butter in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gradually add sugar, mixing well after each addition.
  • Remove cake from pan. Carefully cut cake crosswise in half using serrated knife. Place 1 cake half, top side down, on plate; spread with some of the frosting. Top with remaining cake half, top side up. Spread top and sides with remaining frosting. Press nuts into sides.

Variation

Prepare using BREAKSTONE'S Reduced Fat or KNUDSEN Light Sour Cream, and PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.

How to Store

Keep frosted cake refrigerated.

How to Neatly Frost the Cake

Freeze cake layers about 20 min. before frosting. This helps to set the crumbs on the cut edges of the cake layers so they don't pull up into the frosting. And don't worry if the frosting does not look perfect on the sides of the cake - the nuts will cover any imperfections.

How to Prepare in Round Cake Pans

Prepare cake batter as directed; pour into 2 greased and floured 8- or 9-inch round pans. Bake 30 to 35 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool 10 min. in pans on wire racks; remove from pans to wire racks. Cool completely. Fill and frost as directed. Keep refrigerated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was looking for a good banana cake recipe & this one is great! I was looking for a good banana cake recipe & this one is great! I loved it! I used a sugar free cake mix, low fat sour cream, and 1/3 less fat cream cheese. I made it in a foil cake pan, cooled it all day, removed the cake & cut it in half, then returned it to the foil pan for frosting. I had no problems doing it this way. Next time I am just going to leave it in the pan and frost it on the top. This would also be really good with the new Cool Whip Cream Cheese frosting!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best cakes I've ever made. One of the best cakes I've ever made. I made it years ago for Christmas and my family still talks about it. I've since made it for a work function and now they ask me to make it for potlucks! It's deeeeelicious. I definitely recommend slowly adding the powdered sugar to the cream cheese and tasting frequently--some people think it's too sweet. Also...freeze it before you frost it or it will be a mess!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG! OMG! this cake is SO good. Everyone in my family loves it. I've made it a few times now. The last time I made it I used 2 9inch round pans, and it turned out great too. Super moist and the frosting is great with it. I've used walnuts around it, but I prefer pecans. You should defintely try this recipe, you won't be disappointed.

I made this recipe as directed after 35 minutes it was still wet when tested - let it go for 45 minutes (I bake all of my 13x9 cakes 45 minutes) - I like the taste but when I try it again will leave out the oil - believe there is too much liquid - more to follow from my 2nd try !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband LOVES this cake. My husband LOVES this cake. He doesn't usually eat cake but this one he can eat all by himself. The only problem I have is when I cut it in half and try to frost it the sides crumble, it doesn't spread smoothly. This time I made it as cupcakes and it worked out great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love this cake, but as others have commented, sometimes it collapses. We love this cake, but as others have commented, sometimes it collapses. Looks great coming out of oven, but collapses while cooling. Still tastes good, but the layers are only 3/4" high. I have not heard anyone comment how to avoid this. I do mine in 13x9 pan.
