Banana Split Cake
Festive ice cream cakes are always a summer favorite. Our version duplicates the flavor of a banana split made with strawberry ice cream-with the added twist of ice cream sandwiches. Topped with gooey hot fudge, whipped cream, nuts, and a cherry (if you like), this is a cake you'll go bananas for.
Why This Recipe Works
Our festive ice-cream cake recipe duplicates the flavor of a banana split with strawberry ice cream—with the added twist of cakelike structure from ice-cream sandwiches. For cleaner nut chopping, we placed the walnuts in a heavy-duty zipper-lock bag and tapped them with a meat pounder until they were the desired size. We topped our creation with gooey hot fudge, whipped cream, nuts, and an optional cherry for a Banana Split Cake recipe we could go bananas for.
