My Mom used to make this Banana Split Dessert all the time when I was a kid, it was a staple at all pitch-in’s and church suppers. It’s got the traditional flavors of a banana split in way that feeds a crowd!
This is one of those 70’s desserts that was at every single pitch-in and church supper I ever attended! I loved it then and I love it now!
Layers of sweet goodness with fruit – because fruit is healthy so it was ok to eat as much as socially acceptable and make multiple trips back to the serving table!
Banana Split Dessert
This is a crowd-pleaser and so easy to put together, plus the banana makes it healthy I’m pretty sure! Now if you are actually reading the post before you get to the recipe, I’ll prep you. This recipe calls for raw eggs.
So you know I have eaten this and my Dad’s Homemade Ice Cream, which also uses uncooked eggs, all my life. But if you are not sure there are options out there that you can use!
This is a great make-ahead dessert even though it has bananas in it because the bananas are layered and stay fresh!
