Everything is in this cake!

KIM CARRON from ARMADA, MI

I prepared this cake for a picnic at a co-worker's home. It is extremely rich for my tastes but very good. When I make this again(and I will!) I will remove the chocolate chips from the cake and reduce the amount that I drizzle on the top so the flavors of the fruit can come out. Thank you for inventing this treat!

    A big hit and so beautiful!!!!

    Sally Salada from Tampa, FL

    Even though I don't bake very often I decided to bake this cake for a big birthday party because it sounded so good and the picture was so beautiful. I baked the cake the day before and decorated it with the chocolate, nuts, strawberries and bananas a few hours before the party and put it back in the refrigerator until I served it. They ate the entire cake, it was so moist and everyone loved it! The cake looks just as beautiful as the picture, wow!!!!

    Totally Disappointed

    Jillian Beck from TAMPA, FL

    I had made this for a work function and after all the chopping and mixing...the cake wouldn't bake. I had it in there for the correct time, but it still wouldn't bake. So I continued. Once the toothpicks came out clean. I cooled it and refrigerated it. When I cut the cake it was doughy and gross. Too much liquid and too many ingredients. I threw away the recipe and the cake...yuck!

    Looked great, taste not so great.

    B. Hughes from Missouri

    This was an ok recipe but takes a lot to chop, measure and put together. More like a fruit bread than a cake consistancy. Flavor was just ok, make sure you refrigerate well before serving, the colder it was the better the flavor. Very disappointed especially after reading on the high reviews.

    Jane Jennette from Webster, MA

    I already had a banana split cake that was a favorite but needed to be refrigerated. Did not think this would be as good but, I was pleasantly surprised. Had all the ingredients except strawberries so I tried it without them. It was excellent! Family and friends loved it.

    Wonderful, Beautiful Cake!!

    Cyndi Kruse from Douglasville, GA

    I made this for the Fall Festival at my daughter's school & it was one of the most popular cakes there. I had poured a little of the batter into cupcakes for my family to try before hand (you just have to sample - especially when it looks that good!) and it was a fight to get it out the door the next morning. My fiance was convinced that we could pay the school to keep it! It came out absolutely gorgeous with very little work and tasted wonderful. My only complaint is that as a banana split cake it should really have some maraschino cherries. I think I'm going to used some chopped on the top next time I make it. Oh, I also substituted strawberry pie filling for fresh since my store didn't have any berries that looked good. I just rinsed & drained them and it seemed to work fine.

    awesome

    rae lynn scott from Marrero, LA

    I made this cake to try the recipe. I brought it to a superbowl party we went to. I heard nothing but praise the whole time. EVERYONE loved this cake. I will definitely make this again. Probably for our next family function. One guy in particular kept going back repeatedly. I bet he ate 1/2 by himself. In 3 hours time and about 15 people (adults and kids) it was gone. A definitely MUST TRY.

    Lots of fruit

    Diane Shuff from

    I was somewhat disappointed in this recipe. It sounded delicious but I think there was too much fruit in it. It took longer to bake then the recipe stated. I took it to a carry-in at work, and it looked great but didn't recieve any raves.

    MaryGregg Manuel from SUGAR LAND, TX

    Sorry, I was less than impressed. My husband liked it, but I thought it was heavy and only average. Definitely not worth the trouble of mashing, chopping and then cleaning up. I won't be making this one again.

    Made this cake yesterday - really good. recipe called to be refrigerated, but was in a hurry and served warm. Family thought it was probably better warm because chocolate was melted. Tip -really do let sit in pan for 20 minutes before removing - mine started separating.
