Reviews for Strawberry Banana Split Cake
"Everyone seems to love this.It is very easy to make"
"Delicious! I did add grated chocolate on top with the nuts."
"We have been eating this since 2000. It's great in the summer."
"Amazing!!! This is one of the best summer desserts I've ever tried. I made it for a family picnic and everyone raved and begged me for the recipe. The only change I made was to add 6 oz of cream cheese to the butter mixture. Cannot wait to make this again"
"This recipe brought back awesome memories of my mother-in-law. Many years ago we would go out every Friday night for a fish fry at a little diner and we always topped off our dinner with a piece of banana split cake. The waitresses would even save us a piece if they were about to run out! I wish she were still on earth so I could surprise her with this cake. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe."
