Traditional Banana Split


So this doesn’t really belong in here, but I’ve never had one and I feel like it is a necessary recipe for the cookbook and this recipe can serve as a reminder that everyone needs to have one of these at least once in their lives.

    In an oval deep dish or a banana boat, line up the three scoops of ice cream. Cut the ends off the banana and halve length wise.

  • 2

    Place the banana halves on either side of the dish, pressing down a little so they stay put.

    Top the vanilla ice cream with the pineapple, the chocolate ice cream with the chocolate syrup, and the strawberry ice cream with the crushed strawberries or strawberry sauce.

  • 4

    Cover the entire concoction with walnuts and whipped cream. Top with a cherry.
