Banana Cream Cake with Bolacha Maria Cookie
For banana lovers! This cake recipe tastes just like banana cream pie with and added fluffy and moist cake layer.
Perfect for party, pot luck and a summer picnic. I placed it in the refrigerator which gave it a cold sweet taste. It was a big hit with the family and bananalicious!
