These banana cakes with Nilla Wafer frosting combine the rich, moist flavor banana with the nostalgic crunch and sweetness of the classic vanilla wafers. I used Dolly Parton’s banana cake mix and the cutest narrow trays to create the perfect comfort treats!
I was super excited how these individual banana cakes turned out! They’re made with Dolly Parton’s cake mix, and they’re the perfect blend of southern charm and classic comfort food. Each cake is topped with fresh banana slices and covered with a sweet Nilla Wafer buttercream. We go to Gatlinburg, Tennessee a few times of year and LOVE Dollywood. When Dolly released these mixes, I just had to try every one. The banana mix has a strong flavor, so the ideal match was a complimentary vanilla buttercream with the nostalgic Nilla wafer taste. To top it off, I added a mini Nilla Wafer on top, adding an extra layer of crunch. These cakes are so tasty and wonderful to make year-round. Dare I say, each bite holds a touch of country magic 😉Print
