Banana Split Cake

My daughter likes to be creative. She always comes up with unique cakes that she wants for her birthdays. This year was no exception. For her birthday a couple of weeks ago she choose a banana split cake.

We saw a recipe from Martha Stewart that was called banana split cake and she immediately knew she wanted it. She loves bananas. She also likes to be unique and a banana split cake is unique.

This cake actually surprised me. I was a bit skeptical about it being good. But it really was. I enjoyed it much more then I thought I would. It was the same idea of a layered banana pudding, but with cake and chocolate. I think this cake would make a great dessert to serve a large group of people because you can make it ahead of time. And trifles always look pretty.

This is not exactly like Martha’s. I made some changes, but it is the same basic idea.

This is a bit messy. The bowl is really full and the final chocolate sauce spilled over, so I placed a plate under my trifle bowl. But it still looked really pretty.
