Why is eating out of a little mason jar so much fun? These Banana Split Cakes in a Jar are absolutely delicious, and of course are made even more fun by serving them in a mason jar.
Perfect for events, potlucks or parties. Make the cake ahead and keep the lid on until serving and then top with the frosting!
There is nothing more fun than serving up Desserts in Jars.
This cookbook is full of wonderful, fun and elegant desserts for every single occasion imaginable.
I find myself reaching for mine, when I want to do something creative, but am struggling to come up with something.
Everyone loves being served desserts in jars.
While I enjoy using my jars to cook and bake in, sometimes you just need an easy dessert for a gathering, where the presentation just makes it better.
Enter the Banana Split Cakes In a Jar. Inspired by the cookbook, and Shaina’s recipe for Frozen Banana Splits, my teenagers and I set out to create a fun but non frozen dessert for a recent event we brought dessert to.
This recipe is really more about the presentation than the actual recipe.
But regardless, we had a lot of fun in the kitchen baking, experimenting and eating a lot of cake. And bananas. And cake.
Did I mention cake?
Because there was a lot. You know, in case I didn’t mention it.
Also, the first time we made this, we made from scratch cakes. Yep. And we made our own sauces. And then we got smart. It was a lot of work.
So the second time we made them, we used box mixes for the cake and jarred jellies and sauces for the fruit.
It was a WHOLE lot easier and took HALF the time to put together. So I’m giving you that recipe.
However, if you want to make your cakes from scratch, and your fruit sauces from scratch, you knock yourself out. Don’t get me wrong, it was good.
But honestly so was the second batch.
And everyone was happy and complimenting us and they all seemed surprised when I confessed they were boxed mixes. LOL
So I’m seriously just making these with box mixes from now on. Again, knock yourself out with the made from scratch thing.
