Banana Pudding Cake

For the Cake  (if you prefer from scratch, you could also use boxed mixes of yellow cake mix)
2 4oz sticks butter, softened
3/4 cups sugar
3 eggs
3 tsp vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
One 3.4oz box instant Banana cream pudding mix

Filling (between cake layers):
Whisk together the following ingredients and cook on medium heat until  it thickens and sticks to the spoon ,do this while the cake is in the oven. stir constantly- no lumps-remove from heat and add 1 pack of instant banana pudding and 1 cup of whip cream and place in a mixer, (but add the pudding to the whip cream and mix it, then add it to the hot pudding)***if it thickens add milk
whisk together- 
3/4 cup sugar
1tb vanilla flavor...
2 cups of whole milk...
2tb flour..
pinch of salt.....
4 eggs..
add the vanilla at the end..

Note: next time I make this cake I will make only two layers,  Three made for a difficult time & I have to be honest-sadly mine fell over.

1: Make the cake
Preheat oven to 350 F. Prep three 8″ round pans (or two)by lining the bottom with parchment paper or baking spray. (I used spray)Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Slowly beat in eggs , one at a time. Beat in vanilla until well combined.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and pudding mix. Add into wet ingredients in three separate additions, mixing until just combined. 
Stir in milk until combined. Divide batter and pour into 3 pans.(or 2)Bake 22-25 minutes or until cake is golden and begins to pull away from sides of pans.
Allow cake to cool 15 minutes in pan. Loosen and remove from pan.

2: Begin layering
Level each cake. Add the filling between the cakes to make a 3 layer cake. Brush outside of cake with pudding mixture. Decorate with sliced bananas only if you wish. Layer the whole cake with Nilla wafers. and drizzle pudding over the top Refrigerate until ready to serve if you wish.
