Banana Split Ice Cream Cake Recipe

Banana Split Ice Cream Cake Recipe
  • Meal


  • Cusine


1 1/2 cups chocolate ice cream, softened

2 1/2 cups

1 cup vanilla ice cream, softened

1 cup strawberry ice cream, softened

2 medium ripe bananas, sliced into 1/4-inch coins

1/2 cup hot fudge sauce

whipped cream, nuts, and a maraschino cherry for garnish


Line a 9-inch cake or pie plate with plastic wrap, ensuring that once pressed into the pan, the plastic wrap extends out of the plate—this will make removal much easier later. Put the chocolate ice cream in the pan. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, spread the ice cream so that it forms an even layer on the bottom of the pan. Cover the chocolate ice cream layer with 1/3 of cookie crumbs. Spread vanilla ice cream over crumbs. Spread with another third of crumbs. Lay the banana slices on top of this crumb layer, making an even layer all across the pan. Spread strawberry ice cream over bananas, then top with remaining crumbs. Let chill for at least 3 hours, or overnight When you're ready to serve, remove the pan from the freezer. If you gently tug on the plastic wrap and then turn the pan over, it should come out on a serving plate fairly easily; if not, run a butter knife under hot water and gently run it along the inside of the pan (outside of the plastic wrap). Place a plate on top, then turn together with pan to release. Directly before serving, spoon the hot fudge on top of the cake, and top it with whipped cream and nuts, and, if desired, a maraschino cherry on top.
