"This is heavenly! It's completely homemade-2 layer cake with banana custard filling and chocolate glaze. I got this recipe from a friend who got it from the Pillsbury Bake-off. This special dessert takes a little effort but is gorgeous and delectable!!!"

"This was good, but we felt like the cake was lacking in something. The custard and bananas were delicious though! I might make again to see if the mistake was mine for the cake's flavor."
"We really enjoyed this cake. The bananas give a great flavor and make it even better. I tried to cover the bananas with the filling because I was worried they would turn brown since I was making it the day before serving. They were perfectly fine! I would suggest that you wait to glaze the cake until the day you plan on serving, as it loses some of its lustre if glazed the day before - but it certainly didn't take away from the great flavor. Thank you Kaarin for this delicious recipe. "
"Mmmm, Mmmmm, GOOD!!! We love Boston Cream Pie but I've always been a bit intimidated by the custard - and never wanted to use a box mix. But this was incredibly easy and so, so tasty! It also came out beautifully, with a shiny, crusty glaze. We took pictures, but not in good light and everyone wanted to dig in - so not sure I'll post. But trust me, you need to make this - it's that good! The bananas made it extra special..."
"I love Boston Cream Pie! Cannot wait to try this! I think the addition of the bananas is brilliant!"
"Pretty good. Agree with Lolablitz,cake's flavor seems to be lacking something,although it improves after the night in the fridge. Extremely easy to make,comfort food and nothing fancy.If I make it again I will omit vanilla from the frosting,it gets a little overwhelming having vanilla added to all 3 parts of the cake."
"Made this as a b-day cake for a BCPie lover...got rave reviews! DELISH!"
"My DH and DS gushed about this dessert! They both loved it and kept going back for more! The cake came out light, the filling creamy, and the banana taste was great! Thanks Kaarin, I know what to make for a real treat!"
