Banana Split Cake

Carol Kalinowski


I have been making this recipe for 20+ years. It is cool, light and rich all at the same time. Very user-friendly. After the crust and base you can make it your own. Less whipped topping. Do it. Lots of bananas. Do it. Pecans,walnuts, peanuts or almonds. Do it. The choice is yours. I like to serve with chocolate and strawberry sauces.
