  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with baking spray with flour. In large bowl, beat cake ingredients with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes. Pour into pan.
  • 2 Bake 48 to 55 minutes or until deep golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Cut cake in half lengthwise, then cut crosswise 11 times to make a total of 24 slices.
  • 3 Place 1 or 2 cake slices in each parfait glass or banana split dish. Top each serving with 2 small scoops of ice cream. Spoon strawberries over one scoop. Drizzle hot fudge sauce over other scoop. Top each with whipped topping and cherry. Store cake covered.

Expert Tips

Banana splits usually have three toppings: strawberry, chocolate and pineapple. If your family likes pineapple, spoon a little pineapple topping over the ice cream.

If you don’t have long banana split or parfait dishes, just cut the cake into squares and use round dessert bowls.
