Banana Split Cake

From now until April 22nd, Del Monte is sponsoring a recipe contest called Crown the Cook on Facebook and the prizes are amazing..

If your recipe is selected as one of the top three finalists, not only will you win a year’s supply of Del Monte® products*, but Del Monte will send you and a guest on a four day trip to San Francisco to compete in a cook-off against two other fans!

The grand prize winner will take home the title of Del Monte Cook-Off Champion, as well as thousands of dollars worth of professional cookware! All you have to do is use at least one Del Monte canned product in your recipe. I know everyone here has a recipe using canned tomatoes or some sort of canned fruit so grab those recipes and enter!

Easy Steps to Enter:

  • Visit the Del Monte Facebook page
  • Click on the “Like” button to like the page and access the “Crown the Cook” recipe contest application
  • Click “Submit Recipe”
  • Complete the registration form
  • Upload your recipe photo and enter your recipe
    • Click “Submit”

 

I entered of course, I tweaked my mom’s recipe for Banana Split “Cake”, which has no cake but many layers of deliciousness! I will share this recipe with you as well 🙂

Banana Split “Cake”

1st layer –
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 Tbsp sugar
1 stick butter, melted

2nd layer-
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
8 oz. cool whip

3rd layer –
Soak banana slices in Del Monte canned pineapple slices juice and place close together on 2nd layer, then top with  1/2 cup maraschino cherries, cut in half and 1/2 cup chopped nuts

4th layer – add pineapple (I put my pineapple rings in my food processor to crush them)

5th layer – spread with 8 oz.cool whip

6th layer – Top with cherries, drizzle with chocolate syrup

Refrigerate 5 hours before serving. yes it is as good and rich as it looks!! YUUUUUUUUUUUUUUM!
