- Time:few hours
1Preheat oven to 325°F. Prepare Easy Layers Pans with vegetable pan spray. Then, in large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate large bowl, beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until its light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Then beat in the vanilla. Add your flour mixture alternately with your banana; mix well and then fold in the pecans. Divide evenly between pans, and then bake 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool cakes in pans on a cooling grid for 10 minutes, then remove the cakes from the pan and cool completely on the grid. Note: project time does not include this baking and cooling time.
2Drain the can of pineapple. Then for filling: combine pineapple, sugar and cornstarch in a medium saucepan, and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture begins to thicken. Remove from heat and cool completely.
3For icing: beat cream cheese and butter in large bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy, then add the vanilla. Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed, and then add the milk. Beat until combined, remembering to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl often.
4To assemble: pipe dam with round tip #10 around edge of first layer and fill with 1/3 of the pineapple filling. Continue with remaining layers. Lastly, ice the outside of the cake with the remaining cream cheese icing.
