This Cake is Da Bomb

Cakes of all kinds are a tried and true dessert for many of our family gatherings.  This one is sure to be a hit at your next gathering.  It' delicious creamy layers has something to satisfy everyone.   It's origin is from a bakery in Chicago and is named after the atom bomb (a time when everything was being named after the bomb). 

Atomic Cake

1 layer banana or yellow cake (your favorite recipe)
1 layer chocolate cake (your favorite recipe)
1 layer white cake (your favorite recipe)
Fresh bananas, sliced
Fresh strawberries, sliced (or Cherries)
4 oz. Grated chocolate
1 jar fudge topping
1 small box Jell-O chocolate pudding (cooked and cooled)
1 small box Jell-O vanilla Pudding (cooked and cooled)
1 small box Jell-O banana Pudding (cooked and cooled)
whipped cream

Set the banana (or yellow) cake layer on a cake plate. Spread banana pudding over the top and then layer in sliced bananas. Top with a thin layer of whipcream.

Next place the white cake layer on top. Spread with vanilla pudding.Top with sliced strawberries and whip cream.

Finally, place the chocolate cake layer on top of that layer.  Frost with fudge topping.

Frost entire cake with a generous amount of whipped cream. Sprinkle with grated chocolate.
Refrigerate any leftovers.


  • Chocolate pudding is listed in the recipe as I made this cake into a trifle and each layer of cake int he trifle had a layer of pudding.   However, when you make the cake you end up with three layers of cake and two of pudding.    Feel free to swap out your favorite flavors and layers. 

Here is a photo of this cake in a trifle dish using a strawberry cake and missing the whip cream but adding a layer of chocolate pudding.
