Banana Split Cake = Pure Awesomeness

This cake is one of my favorite recipes. It is scary good. I made it last night and we've almost cleaned the pan already!! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Banana Split Cake
  • 1 box of vanilla wafers
  • 4 sticks of butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 2 20 oz. cans of crushed pineapple, drained
  • 5 bananas, sliced
  • 2 cups of Cool Whip
  • 1 small jar maraschino cherries
  • 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Run the vanilla wafers through your food processor. Once they are well crushed, mix in 1 cup of melted butter. Combine well and firmly press into the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
Combine sugar, eggs & the remaining butter. Beat in your stand mixer until the mixture is light and fluffy. Pour sugar mixture over the wafer crust and spread until smooth.
Layer the crushed pineapple onto the cake, followed by the banana slices.
Spread the whipped cream over entire cake. Top with cherries {& pecans if you so choose.}
Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving. Although it is much better if allowed to set up in the fridge over night!
