Banana Split Cake
This isn’t a cake at all. I’m not sure why we call it that. Well, some folks call it Banana Split Dessert or Banana Split Pie. My people and I call it Banana Split Cake. But it’s not a cake. At all. It’s a no-bake dessert that is perfect for our summers. We can have our sweet treats without turning on our ovens.
