How to Make a No-Bake Banana Split Cake

There is nothing better than a banana split. Well, this Banana Split Cake, that requires no baking, gives that banana split a run for its money. This is one quick and easy recipe!

Quick tip: You can save time making the Banana Split Cake by purchasing a ready-made graham cracker crust.


1. To make your own graham cracker crust, combine 2 cups of graham cracker crumbs, 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 stick of melted butter or margarine and press the mixture in a 9 x 13-inch pan.

2. Beat 2 eggs, 2 sticks of softened butter or margarine, and 2 cups of powdered sugar; spread over graham cracker crust.

3. Add a single layer of sliced bananas, sprinkled with lemon juice if desired. Spread 1 can of crushed pineapple over the bananas.

4. Top with Cool Whip. Sprinkle with chopped nuts, maraschino cherries and shaved chocolate if desired.

5. Refrigerate and cut into squares to serve.

That sounds really easy. I might share this with my grandma. She likes to bake but doesn't have the energy anymore and this would be perfect.

This is very easy to prepare but it sounds like it is high in sugar.

That would be great if your grandmother could make this cake without taxing herself too much. I do like the quick and easy.

I have used non-fat Cool Whip and I have used sugar-substitute too and it still tastes great. Using pineapple in its own juice lowers the calorie count too. I forgo the nuts and cherries to lower calories sometimes. Honey could also be used in place of sugar, but haven't tried that yet.
