Recipe Details:

Making a Banana Split Cake is like taking a trip down memory lane to those warm summer days with a cold banana split in hand. But this time, we’re turning it into a cake that’s both simple and scrumptious.


  • 2 cups of crushed graham crackers
  • ½ cup of melted butter
  • 1 cup of sugar, split into halves
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 package of cream cheese (8 ounces), softened
  • 4 to 5 bananas
  • 1 can of crushed pineapple, drained (20 ounces)
  • 2 cups of whipped cream
  • ¼ cup of chopped nuts (your choice)
  • A handful of cherries
  • Chocolate syrup for drizzling

Preparation Steps:

  1. Start by mixing the crushed graham crackers with the melted butter and ½ cup of sugar in a bowl. Press this mixture into the bottom of a 9×13 inch pan to form the crust. Pop it in the fridge to set.
  2. In another bowl, mix the remaining sugar with the eggs and vanilla until it’s smooth. Add the softened cream cheese and beat it until it’s creamy. Spread this over your crust.
  3. Slice the bananas and layer them over the cream cheese mixture. Then, spread the drained pineapple on top.
  4. Cover everything with a layer of whipped cream. Sprinkle the chopped nuts over the cream and add some cherries on top. Drizzle with chocolate syrup.
  5. Chill the cake in the fridge for about 2 hours before serving to let everything set perfectly.

Recipe Tips and Variations:

  • If you’re worried about using raw eggs, you can use a no-egg cream cheese filling or cook the egg mixture over a double boiler until thickened.
  • Mix in some strawberries or mix chocolate chips into the crust for a twist.
  • Use a mix of different nuts for the topping to add a unique crunch.

Serving Suggestions:

This cake is a showstopper on its own, but you can make it even more special by serving it with extra whipped cream on the side or even a scoop of vanilla ice cream for that classic banana split experience.

Nutritional Information:

While this cake is on the indulgent side, you can make it a bit healthier by using low-fat cream cheese and whipped cream. Remember, it’s all about balance and enjoying sweet treats in moderation.
