Butter Pecan Banana Cake

I found out we were having company, on rather short notice, and knew that if I wanted to whip something together it had to be fast (hence the cake mix).

All of the elements in this cake are delightful but it is the crunchy, buttery, pecan icing that makes this cake, {oh my}!

Thankfully our lovely company, some of who had thirds, polished this off for me so I wouldn't be tempted to finish any remainings the following day.

Thanks to the packaged mix, this cake takes no time to put together. The icing can be made while the cake is baking, a little time consuming, but nonetheless a fast and delicious dessert to bake, serve and enjoy!
