Let's Eat Cake!

For Mother's Day I just felt like making a cake from a LONG time ago.

Oh, yum......






Banana Split No Bake Cake


Yield: 12 to 16 servings Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

For the Crust:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
½ cup unsalted butter, melted
For the Cream Cheese Layer:
12 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
¼ cup granulated sugar
8 ounces COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
For the Fruit & Toppings:
3 to 4 bananas, sliced
1 (20-ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained well
16 ounces strawberries, hulled, and sliced
8 ounces COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
½ cup walnuts, chopped
Chocolate syrup
Maraschino cherries

Directions:

1. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish; set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter, stirring until all of the crumbs are evenly moistened. Dump the crumbs into the prepared pan and press into an even layer. Refrigerate while you prepare the next layer.
3. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the COOL WHIP until thoroughly combined. Spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the graham cracker crust.
4. Arrange the banana slices in a single layer on top of the cream cheese filling, top with an even layer of the crushed pineapple, and then an even layer of the sliced strawberries.
5. Cover with the COOL WHIP, smoothing the top. Sprinkle with the chopped walnuts, then drizzle with chocolate syrup and top with maraschino cherries. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight.

I remember making this one...it IS delicious! Thanks for posting the recipe, as I don't have it anymore. Perhaps I'll do it for Fathers Day.

Thanks for your sweet offer to look for milkglass pieces for me. It would probably be too expensive to ship it from AZ. I seem to see the same things again & again around here. I'm going to go back for that little quilted candy dish, though. Wish me luck that it is still there.

Hugs,
Rett
