This Banana Split cake with strawberries is moist and has a beautiful texture. The fresh strawberries in the sauce are delicious. Literally the icing on the cake. The dollop of whipped cream is optional - but why wouldn't you? 🙂
A few tips about making this Banana Split Cake with Strawberry Sauce
- Always use ripened bananas like the ones in the photo above.
- I had two bunches of leftover banana when I made this recipe. The one of the left is what I would consider a small banana and the one on the right a large one. When I enter a recipe, I will always try to give the cup measurement vs. the banana size. The large one on the right was exactly ½ cup once mashed. It makes a difference to the flavour.
Hot Chocolate Mix for the chocolate part of the cake
Three evelopes of single serve 25g Carnation Hot Chocolate Mix (this is not a sponsored post) added to the ½ cup needed for the recipe. You could use any brand.
The rest of the cake is very straightforward, however I wanted to show a picture of how the chocolate goes into the bundt pan and doesn't go to the edges.
Austin & I were chatting as we were making this cake and I completely forgot to flour the pan after I greased it as you will see in the photo. I highly recommend using the flour because it prevents the cake from sticking.
