This Banana Split Chocolate Bundt Cake is packed with all your favorite sundae flavors! Throw in some mashed banana, strawberries, crushed pineapple, melted chocolate chips and sour cream for moist, Bundt cake perfection. No one will get upset if you decide to drizzle a bit of extra chocolate glaze on top. You can never have too much chocolate in a cake after all.
There are so many presentation options with this Bundt cake. You can add your favorite nut topping, add fresh whipped cream, more chocolate chips, or serve it warm with ice cream on top. I served it with a bit of fresh fruit to further bring out the great flavors of the cake.
My daughter is a complete ice cream fanatic. She will eat the ice cream on the side of a cake, but not the cake. This is quite the anomaly to me as a chocolate cake lover. She was adamant about getting a slice of this Banana Split Chocolate Bundt cake, even after I explained there was no ice cream to go with it. The girls were climbing up stools and leaning over the counter to try and steal a taste. This is always stressful when you are trying to maintain appearances for a photo shoot. The cake eventually made it to higher heights and onto my daughter’s plate. To my chagrin, the piece was eaten in it’s entirety. Yea…she ate something with fruit in it (baby steps).
I also made a Key Lime Pie over the weekend for a birthday celebration. Everyone wanted a piece of it AND a slice of this half eaten Banana Split Cake. Who can blame them for wanting a dessert sampler platter? Hmmm…this cake should not be left in plain sight if you want any for yourself!
