Oxmoor House
Yield Serves 16
This streamlined version of the popular cake starts with a cake mix, bakes in a Bundt pan and is finished with store-bought vanilla frosting...The result? A moist, rich cake that's simple to make.


  • 1 8-oz. can crushed pineapple
  • 1/2 cup ripe banana, mashed
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional: 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 1 (18 1/2-oz.) pkg. banana cake mix
  • 1 (16-oz.) can vanilla frosting
  • toasted pecans, chopped

How to Make It

  1. Beat together first 5 ingredients and rum, if desired, in a large mixing bowl at low speed with an electric mixer until blended. Add cake mix, beat at medium speed 2 minutes. Pour batter into a greased and floured Bundt pan.

  2. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 15 minutes; remove cake from pan and cool completely on wire rack.
