Easy Banana Split Cake
Oh my word.
You need to make this.
I've been trying out some fun recipes for our summer grilling series (you can snag our slow cooker series here if you're interested!), and good gravy. My friend Cheree hit it out of the park with this Banana Split Cake.
It's not one I would normally ever have tried (and honestly, I'm not a huge pineapple fan so I didn't think I would love it), but it was perfection on a platter.
Perfect for summer time.
Or winter time.
Or spring time.
you're welcome. 🙂
My daughter Reagan actually did all the work to put this cake together, and it's a perfect simple no-bake treat. If you have an event (or just need a happy dessert in your life today . . .), this one's just for you.

One of the things I love most about this recipe is that younger children can put together as well with just a little bit of guidance.
I am thinking that next time we have the girls over for a slumber party this would be one they could have fun pulling together for themselves – and hey it has fruit in it so it's not totally unhealthy, right? 😉
