About This Banana Split Cake

This banana split cake is one my Mom used to make for us when we were kids. It’s one of those yummy desserts that are always a big hit. It is very easy to make and takes almost no time. Who doesn’t love a huge banana split filled with sliced bananas, pineapple, strawberries, hot fudge, pecans, whipped cream, and maraschino cherries? It is my favorite summer treat, and I'm willing to bet it will be yours as well.

This banana split cake is a fantastic way to enjoy all of the things we love about banana splits, is great for office parties, potluck, or special family gatherings, and is insanely delicious.
