  • Medium Mixing Bowl (2)
  • 9x13-inch Baking Pan
  • Whisk



  • 16.5 ounces yellow cake mix 1 box, prepared according to directions
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk 1 can
  • 12 ounces caramel sauce 1 jar


  • 3.4 ounces instant banana pudding mix 1 box
  • cups milk
  • 8 ounces cool whip 1 container
  • Nut Topping


  • Make yellow cake according to the box directions for a 9x13 cake. Let cool. Using a fork, poke holes all over the top of the cake. Pour sweetened condensed milk and caramel sauce over the top of the cake, letting them soak into the cake.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together banana pudding mix and milk for two minutes, until it begins to thicken. Fold in Cool Whip until completely combined. Spread Cool Whip/pudding mixture over the top of the cake. 
  • Sprinkle on nut topping and drizzle with any leftover caramel. Store in the refrigerator until time to serve.


  • To store, we recommend placing it in an air tight storage container, and putting it in the fridge.
  • If you aren’t going to eat it for more than a week, we recommend freezing it. Again the best way to freeze it is placing it in an airtight storage container and putting it in the freezer.
