This dessert is my family's all-time favorite and super easy to make. Trust me if you make this once whoever eats it will beg you to make it all the time.

Ok, strawberries and bananas... that's two servings of fruit - right? This a quick & easy dessert. It's basically a brownie and banana split combined...the best of both worlds! Have napkins handy because it's a little messy but so yummy. We loved the flavors from the banana and pudding layer. The walnuts and chocolate drizzle are the perfect topping. It'll be a hit at your next cookout. This cool and creamy dessert will satisfy both the fruit and chocolate lover. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Banana Split Brownie Cake


  1. Bake brownie mix as directed and let cool. I usually under cook my brownies just a little for a more chewy brownie.
  2. Make instant pudding and chill until brownies are cooled.
  3. Once brownies are cooled, slice the bananas right on top of the brownies until they have a nice layer all over.
  4. Pour the pudding on top of the bananas.
  5. Now, spread the Cool Whip on top of that.
  6. Slice up your strawberries and spread over the top. I chunk cut mine so you get a strawberry in every bite, lol.
  7. Now, sprinkle your walnuts all over and you're done. Keep refrigerated until time to eat. Refrigerate for several hours before cutting.
  8. Sometimes I drizzle some chocolate syrup over the top too. If I'm really craving chocolaty goodness.
