Banana cakes only need to be refrigerated if they have a perishable filling or frosting. For instance, our Banana Pudding Cake needs refrigeration because of the cream cheese frosting, sliced bananas in the filling, and cream filling.

Yes! Banana Cake layers (or banana bundt cakes) freeze beautifully. This will allow plenty of time for baking in advance.

For banana layer cakes, wrap each layer individually (we often do this while they are still slightly warm), tightly with plastic wrap followed by aluminum foil. Into the freezer they go!

To thaw, bring the cake layers to the kitchen counter and allow to sit 30-35 minutes before unwrapping. Continue to thaw to desired amount (some bakers like to assemble their cakes while the layers are still partially frozen as they are less fragile).

When thawing a larger cake like a bundt cake or pound cake, it is best to move the wrapped cake to the refrigerator the night before.

Then, the next morning, move to the kitchen counter and continue to thaw at room temperature. You can remove the wrapping the next day after condensation is no longer forming.

The most popular banana cakes on our site are the good old fashioned Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting, Banana Pudding Cake, Banana Cupcakes, and Hummingbird Cake! We have doctored cake mix versions of these as well.
