Banana Split Cake Recipe

Marbled cake mixes, strawberry flavored gelatin and bananas combine to make this crowd sized Banana Split Cake. Wonderfully moist and creamy, I just love the chocolate rich banana splits.
(Makes a great Graduation or any Special Day Cake)
Recipe makes approximately 25 to 30 servings.

3 packages Favorite marble cake mix
1 package (3 ounces) Strawberry flavored gelatin
3/4 cup Boiling water
1/2 cup Cold water
1 package (4 servings) Vanilla instant pudding and pie mix
1 tub (9 ounces) Frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 1/2 cups Cold milk
4 Bananas, sliced

Oven Temp ~ 325°
Baking Time ~ 45 to
Pan Type ~ 12 x 18 Sheet Pan with Cover
Preheat oven, grease and flour pan.

Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in cold water, set aside at room temperature. Prepare and bake cake. Cool cake in pan on rack for 10 minutes. Level the top of cake with a large sharp knife. Turn cake onto platter or foil-covered cake board, cool an additional 10-15 minutes. Poke deep holes through top of cake with meat fork, space holes about 1 inch apart. With a cup, slowly pour gelatin mixture over cooled cake. Set cake into refrigerator while preparing filling.

Banana Split Cake Filling Instructions:

Mix the instant pudding mix and cold milk in bowl, fold in whipped topping. Using a long serrated knife, split cake into two horizontal layers. A flat cookie sheet makes a convenient large "spatula" for lifting and replacing the top layer. Spread filling on bottom layer, add banana slices and replace top layer. Ice Banana Split Cake with white buttercream icing.

Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?

Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.

Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.

And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!

Nothing says "I Love You" more than a surprise dessert made from one of our homemade cake recipes.

Suppling Tips for Healthy Homemade Cakes

When Baking with Butter:

Room temperature butter in the cake batter is one of the biggest cake baking mistakes. In fact, butter must be below 68° to trap air molecules and build structure. Otherwise, the fat will liquefy and the cake will be flat. To get “cool” butter, cut the chilled butter into chunks and let it sit in a bowl for 5 minutes before beating.

When Mixing Cake Batter:

You cannot over beat the eggs, sugar and butter, but you can over beat the flour. If you do, gluten will form and you will be making a quick bread instead of layer cake. Beat the flour just until there are no visible signs of dry flour, but not until the batter is completely smooth.

Cake Flour:

Cake flour is milled from soft wheat that has a lower gluten content and higher starch content than all-purpose flour. It helps to ensure a fluffy texture in cakes and pastries. A substitute for cake flour is to use all-purpose flour, but reduce the amount by 2 tablespoons per cup.

Green Food:

The food choices that we make every day have a profound effect on the environment. From farm to spoon, growing our food, processing it and transporting it all use tremendous amounts of energy, water and chemicals. By making just a few small changes in our eating and buying habits, we can greatly reduce this impact. When we eat green, we help the environment by reducing global warming pollution and help ourselves by eating fresh and healthy food. Eat local from farmers in your own neighborhood!
