Banana Nutella Snack Cake - Chilled Summer Cake

Overripe bananas turn out the perfect banana snack cake but it is too darn hot for baking. What's a Florida cake lover to do? I found the answer in this banana cake recipe.  This Nutella topped banana cake recipe starts with a cake mix and tastes most excellent when chilled. Using a cake mix reduces prep time, Nutella eliminates making a frosting, and the "chill factor" allows for baking after the sun has set! 

Banana Nutella Snack Cake

Banana Nutella Snack Cake

  • 1 Betty Crocker Super Moist yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup cup mashed ripe bananas (2 - 3)
  • 1/2 cup cup light sour cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup cup canola oil
  • 3 - 4 Tbsp. Nutella
Cooking Directions
  1. HEAT oven to 350F
  2. 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.
  3. BAKE 35 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove pan to a baking rack and cool for about 5 minutes.
  4. Drop one spoon of Nutella onto warm cake. Allow Nutella to begin to warm, gently spread across the cake. Repeat the process until cake is completely covered with Nutella.
  5. Drag the spreader from left to right across the Nutella applying very light pressure to create a uniform pattern or design.
  6. Cool on the baking rack for about 15 minutes more, cover loosely and refrigerate overnight or until Nutella is firm. Cut into squares and serve.

Did you know...
I had to go into the kitchen and check this out for myself.
Whoever looks at the end of your aluminum foil box? You know when you try to pull some foil out and the roll comes out of the box. Then you have to put the roll back in the box and start over. The darn roll always comes out at the wrong time. Well, I would like to share this with you. Yesterday I went to throw out an empty Reynolds foil box and for some reason I turned it and looked at the end of the box. And written on the end it said, Press here to lock end. Right there on the end of the box is a tab to lock the roll in place. How long has this little locking tab been there? I then looked at a generic brand of aluminum foil and it had one, too. I then looked at a box of Saran wrap and it had one too! I can't count the number of times the Saran wrap roll has jumped out when I was trying to cover something up. I'm sharing this with my friends. I hope I'm not the only person that didn't know about this.
