  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the cake mix and instant pudding. Add eggs, oil and water, mix until smooth. Pour into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, set aside to cool. Prepare filling using the second set of ingredients.
  4. In a small saucepan, stir together the flour and milk, and cook over medium heat until boiling. Stir over heat until thick, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. In a medium bowl, cream butter, shortening, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the flour mixture at high speed. Invert cooled cake onto a tray. Split into two layers horizontally, and fill with the frosting. Replace top layer and cut into 3x2 inch rectangles. These keep better if individually wrapped.

I made cupcakes and filled them with the cream filling. Then I made a buttercream icing flavored with banana extract. It was great!!

These are scrumptious, yummy and delicious. They remind me of the Banana Suzy-Q's we used to buy back home. Everyone LOVES these!

I have to thank you for this gem in my recipe box! The frosting filling was perfect. It wasn't too sweet or heavy, so it didn't overpower the delicious flavors of the banana cake. I will definitely be trying variations of this recipe using chocolate cake for a traditional Suzie-Q cake. Also, I'm going to try adding in a bit of peanut butter to the frosting for a PB Chocolate treat I know my family will appreciate. Thanks so much for sharing this one!

I think this would've been great, but reeeeally didn't want to use full fat butter AND shortening, so I used reduced-fat Blue Bonnet margarine. The end result; the frosting tasted right, but the texture was running and greasy-looking. Not appetizing, not that fluffy filling I was so excited about. Not even usable. Bummer! So, my advice is to definitely use full-fat butter/shortening if you make this.

These were so yummy. I couldn't stop eating them. The filling is excellent. I used chocolate cake instead.
