Banana Split Cake

I love banana splits. This cake brings back memories of eating banana splits:

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup sugar, divided
1/3 cup butter, melted
2 - 8 ounce packages cream cheese, softened
1 can - 20 ounces crushed pineapple, drained
6 medium bananas, divided
2 cups cold milk
2 small packages vanilla instant pudding
2 cups thawed whipped topping, divided
1 cup chopped nuts


Mix together the graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup of the sugar and the butter; press firmly onto bottom of 13x9-inch pan. Freeze for 10 minutes.

Beat the cream cheese and remaining 3/4 cup sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Spread carefully over crust; top with pineapple.

Slice 4 of the bananas; arrange over pineapple.

Pour the milk into a medium bowl. Add pudding mixes. Beat with wire whisk 2 minutes or until well blended. Gently stir in 1 cup of the whipped topping; spread over banana layer in pan. Top with remaining 1 cup whipped topping; sprinkle with pecans. Refrigerate 5 hours. Slice remaining 2 bananas just before serving; arrange over dessert.

Oh My...this looks YUMMY!!! Mind if I use it and possibly quote it in a blog post for my personal blog? I'd be linking it all back to you of course. Visit my page at www.wifeandmomof3.net and let me know. I just recently moved my old blog to this new location and basically restarting over.

BTW...thanks for stopping by my Book Faery Reviews blog! I've read The Heir not too long ago and thought it was a good book! :-)

Thanks!
