Bear N Mom Recipes - Banana Split Cake
This cake starts with a boring cake mix, but it's what is done to the mix that makes it special. It's another "Try it -- You'll like it" from the recipe hat box.
This cake is decadence beyond belief and oh so does make it worth the calories that you are inhaling while you eat this cake. With this cake, you have a banana split without the ice cream melting all over the plate before you can enjoy the scrumptious flavors.
I have only made this once and the only cake to rival it is the Yum Yum Cake (recipe linked below) that Nunny would make for special family events.
