My contribution

I'm finally getting around to doing my post about a cookie/cake/delish baked thing that Trying asked for a few weeks ago. Here is the original post.

Banana Split Cake is what I made last week for my co-workers. They all loved it and promptly asked me for the recipe. I gladly shared and loved the fact that they enjoyed it as much as I did. My mom makes this cake for holiday gatherings and it's always almost gone before you can blink. It's no bake either, just needs to be refridgerated over night which makes it beyond easy.

Banana Split Cake

Crust- 2/3 stick melted butter
2 cups or 11 squares of graham crackers crushed.

Mix melted butter and crushed crackers together. Put in the bottom of 13x9 baking pan and pack tightly.

2 eggs
2 sticks margerine
2 cups powdered sugar
3-5 sliced bananas
20 oz of crushed pineapple (well drained)
1 large container of Cool Whip
Maraschino cherries (halved)
Chopped pecans
Shredded coconut

Beat eggs, margarine and powedered sugar together no less than 5-10 minutes. Spread over crust.

Add layer of sliced bananas and then a layer of pineapple

Top with a layer of whipped topping. I like to put it on thick.

Top with cherries, pecans and coconut.

Refridgerate overnight.

The finished product: (I made a half-recipe for the office, if you're wondering why my pan is obviously not 13x9)

If you make it, you have to tell me if you like it or not!
