Banana Split Cake Recipe

If you have been following my cake recipes lately, you will know that I have been putting forward an effort to bring you not only delicious recipes, but healthy cake recipes, too. Let’s be honest, as hard as we try to eat healthy, sometimes we deserve a treat and I find myself thinking, “Alright, maybe this isn’t the most healthy banana split cake recipe, but who cares? It’s worth it.” I’m a believer in people treating themselves sometimes, but if you are going to indulge then DO IT RIGHT! Don’t waste those calories on cheap sweets that you can barely enjoy, spend those calories wisely on something delicious like this banana split banana cake recipe that I’m about to share with you. Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
  • 6 bananas
  • 1 package of vanilla wafers
  • 1 can of crushed pineapple
  • 1 handful’s worth of maraschino cherries
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese (1 package)
  • 2 cups of sugar (confectioner’s)
  • 12 ounces of whipped cream / whipped topping (Frozen or from a can, or homemade)
  • ¼ cup of chopped walnuts

Here are the preparation instructions:

  1. Crush the vanilla wafers into crumbs.
  2. Combine the margarine along with the crushed wafers in a medium sized baking pan and pat them down.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the sugar and the cream cheese and beat it until it’s fluffy and light.
  4. Spread this mixture over the margarine and wafer combination in your baking pan.
  5. Now it’s time for the fruity layers, start by spooning the pineapples over the top of the cream cheese and then add a layer of sliced bananas. Drain the juice from the can of pineapples beforehand. You can have two thick layers, or multiple thin layers, it’s completely up to you. You may even want to add some slices of orange.
  6. The last layer is the whipped cream.
  7. Finally, top it all off with walnuts and cherries.

I told you we were going to make the best of these calories, didn’t I? This delicious cake recipe only takes about 5-10 minutes to prepare, and it doesn’t require any baking. Don’t worry if it doesn’t look gorgeous on the first try because with banana splits, it’s all about digging in. You can also include some ice cream either along with, or instead of the cream. I also mentioned that you may want to include oranges, chocolate chips, sprinkles, syrup on top, peanuts and there’s really an endless amount of toppings you could add to make this recipe your own.
