Well, today we celebrated Gary's birthday.As usual I got out the Happy Birthday banner and the boys decided to write on the door "Happy Birthday Dad!" (With those crayola window markers) but there was just one problem to my day it was 90 degrees, hot and humid and I needed to bake a birthday cake in my house with no air conditioning. When Gary came in for breakfast, I apologized that I didn't think we would have cake for his birthday until the weekend (possible high of 58). I figured that ice cream with a candle would have to due for now, but he asked about the Banana Split Ice Cream Cake that a friend had shared the recipe a few years ago. I thought about this and decided that it would be just about perfect for his birthday today. Which it was especially good this evening when it was still very warm at 7:30, and it worked great for a hot September birthday with a candle in it. So here is the recipe for those who might need a quick and easy dessert for these last few hot days of summer! HAPPY BIRTHDAY GARY!
Banana Split Ice Cream Cake
2 -12 count boxes of ice cream sandwiches
1 tub of whipped cream
any other toppings that you might find on a banana split
In a 9x13 glass pan, cover the bottom in unwrapped ice cream sandwiches. Spread a layer of whipped topping on top of the sandwiches. Then slice the bananas on top of the whipped topping, place cherries where they would be on each slice when cut. Add any other toppings that you desire. Then layer yet another layer of unwrapped ice cream sandwiches. Add another layer of whipped topping. Freeze until ready to serve. Cut place on plates and drizzle a little bit of chocolate syrup over the top and enjoy!
