This Banana Split Poke Cake will be the most fun dessert you’ll make all summer! Layers of chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, banana, and the list goes on! Your family will beg you to make it again!
The Banana Split. It’s a staple and a classic in the dessert world and today we’re ditching the ice cream and trading it in for CAKE! This Banana Split Poke Cake will blow your mind, seriously, it’s THAT GOOD! My husband, who hates fruit desserts had TWO slices… what? And I ate more slices than I’m willing to confess…
Plus, I’m thinking this cake is the best way to send off summer! This could very well be the last summer inspired dessert, but it might not, I’m not making any promises, but I can tell you the pumpkin and apple recipes are coming very, very soon!
Banana Splits have always reminded me of my childhood, I’d get one every chance I got, but my eyes were always bigger than my belly. They’re just such a fun dessert and when you’re little they just seem so special, maybe it’s because they’re so over the top. Well, this cake is a little over the top too but in the best possible way! Really though, how can you not look at this cake and smile, it’s just too fun and it tastes amazing to boot!
When you take a marble cake and bake it up good, then poke holes in it and smother it with banana pudding and strawberry and pineapple ice cream topping, you’re in for a real treat! But we all know a cake isn’t complete without frosting, right? How does a strawberries and cream frosting sound? How about if we top it with chopped peanuts, chocolate syrup, sprinkles, and vanilla frosting? Do I still have your attention or have I lost you to this cake? It’s okay if I have, I can’t blame you. But just don’t forget to put that cherry on top, mmmkay?
