Looking for a dessert that instantly screams fun? How about delicious? Would simple and no-bake make it any better? I have just the recipe for you – banana split cake!
I just can’t wait to share the recipe for this amazing cake with you!
My sister-in-law first shared this recipe with me over 16 years ago at one of my bridal showers where all the guests brought their favorite recipe along with an item for the kitchen. Hands down that was my very favorite shower and I continue to use many of the dishes and recipes shared with me!
However, I couldn’t have been more excited when I opened the present from my sister-in-law-to-be and saw that she’d shared the recipe for banana split cake. I’d tasted this cake before at a summer supper at my then future husband’s parent’s house. She brought the dessert and after one bite we all declared it to be a definite favorite. Cool, refreshing, and full of bright summery flavors, no one will ever guess this banana split cake is such an easy icebox cake!
