Banana Split Cake
Creamy and full of fruit, this Banana Split Cake tastes like a Banana Split made from ice cream. A delicious graham cracker crust topped with cream cheese, bananas, pineapple, strawberries and Cool Whip (or whipped cream). Garnished with peanuts, maraschino cherries and chocolate syrup to make this dessert fabulous!

Ingredients for the crust.
Ingredients for the cake.
In a medium bowl, add the graham
cracker crumbs and the sugar.
Mix together to combine.
Add the melted butter and
combine with a fork.
Then I used my fingers to make sure all
of the crumbs were coated in butter.
Pour the mixture into a 9″ x 13″ cake pan.
Using a spoon, press the crumbs evenly onto
the bottom and up the sides of the pan.
Refrigerate for one hour.
In a medium bowl using a hand mixer,
beat the powdered sugar and cream
cheese until creamy and smooth.
Spread the cream cheese evenly over
the chilled graham cracker crust.
Slice the bananas, one at a time, and
place them on top of the cream cheese.
Using a spoon place the
pineapple evenly on top.
Add the sliced strawberries on top.
Add the Cool Whip (or whipping cream)
and carefully spread it evenly over
the entire top to seal off all the edges.
Sprinkle the peanuts on top.
Place the cherries on top.
Drizzle with chocolate syrup.
Refrigerate for 1 – 2 hours, slice and serve.
