Banana Split Cake

Banana Split Cake

1 Box Yellow cake mix, baked in 10 x 15 pan. Cool and chill in refrigerator.
2 Boxes instant vanilla pudding made according to box directions. Add two 8-ounce packages of cream cheese and mix well. Spread over cake. Cut up 6-8 bananas and layer over cake and pudding mixture. Spread two 20-ounce cans of crushed pineapple over bananas and top with 2 containers of Cool Whip. Top with strawberries, fresh or frozen. Drizzle chocolate and sprinkle with nuts for that real Banana-Split feeling. Yummy!

1 banana cake mix
1 chocolate cake mix

strawberries, sliced
crushed pineapple, drained
marichino cherries, drained

This recipe makes a large 4 layerd cake. Great for parties.

Follow cake mixes and bake as directed for a 13 by 9 pan. Cool and cut each cake into layered halves.
