Banana Split Cake

This is an easy cake and you don't have to turn on the oven.  

Banana Split Cake

For Crust- 
16 graham crackers
1 1/2 sticks of butter
6 Tbs. sugar
For Cake-
2 eggs
2 sticks of softened butter
2 cups of powdered sugar
2-3 bananas, sliced
1 can crushed pineapple, drained
1 8 oz. tub of whipped topping
1/2 cup of chopped up nuts (walnuts or pecans are what I use)

For Crust:
Melt butter and add to crushed graham crackers and sugar.

This is how I crush my graham crackers.  I put the crackers in a gallon size zip lock bag and I use the end of my marble rolling pin to get the crackers down to size and then I roll the bag to get the crackers to crumbs.

Press mixture into bottom of 9 in.x13 in. pan.  Chill for 45 minutes.

For cake:
Beat eggs, then add butter and powdered sugar.  Beat on med-high for 15 minutes.
DO NOT COOK.  If you don't like to serve raw eggs in any dish,  then I am telling you now, they are raw in the finished dish.
Pour mixture over crust.  Put a layer of sliced bananas on top of this.
Next, put on a layer of crushed pineapple, drained.   Then put on a layer of whipped topping.  And top by sprinkling on chopped up nuts. 

For some reason I don't have a picture of a slice of this, something tells me the kids distracted me.  Put in the fridge to store.  This cake is really rich.  We usually only have it once a year for a birthday.
Recipe source: My grandmother.  It was probably originally out of a magazine.

Yum, I had forgotten that recipe. Ours had cream cheese somewhere in one of the layers. No eggs though.

Oh my gosh, there is a restaurant in Houston that serves this dessert. I love it but have never had the recipe. This just might get made today as I have bananas that need to find their way into something yummy. Thanks.

That cake sounds great. How wonderful not to have to use the oven for it with the temps being so high these days.
Every week I host a recipe spotlight where foodies come and show off their recipes from the weekend I'd love for you to come on over and share a recipe or 2. Have a blessed day.
