1 package (18.25 ounce size) white cake mix 1 package (4-serving size) instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 4 mashed ripe bananas 1/3 cup vegetable oil ***Crunchy Broiled Topping*** 1/4 cup butter 3/4 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup light cream 1 cup flaked coconut 1 cup chopped pecans
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9X13 pan.
In a large mixer bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, bananas and oil. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes or until smooth. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan.
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Top with broiled topping (or icing of your choice). Let cool at least 30 minutes in pan on a wire rack before cutting.
Variation: Try with butterscotch, chocolate, or banana cream pudding.
CRUNCHY BROILED TOPPING: In a saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in brown sugar, light cream, flaked coconut and chopped pecans. Heat broiler. Spread topping evenly over hot cake. Broil 6" below element for about 3 minutes, or until golden brown.
I was thrilled with this cake, it is moist and flavorful and the topping is wonderful. I didn't use flaked cocoanut in the topping and I substituted walnuts for the pecans. Delicious. I will definitely make this again.

This cake is so moist, we loved it.
I used evaporated milk instead of cream and it worked out fine. Watch when broiling, I did it for 1 min

Very good flavor and texture- I used two 8-inch round pans with good results!
