Banana Split Cake - OMG this is good!!!

This tastes EXACTLY like a banana split!!!!! Very rich and addictive, and just 4.9 carbs per piece!

I know that some people on here will FREAK OUT when they see the recipe contains a banana, and some pineapple, and say "There's no way I could eat that fruit". Well guess what, unless you're on Induction, you can probably enjoy this cake because it only has 4.9 carbs per slice!

I have read every nutrition label on the ingredients, and also punched every ingredient into ******. You CAN have this cake!

All nutrition info is below the pics, and a few more tips.


Banana Split Cake









CRUST - Melt 3 Tablespoons Butter, and stir in 2 Tablespoons Sweetener blend. Combine with 1 Cup Almond Flour.




Spread crust mixture into greased 7 X 11 pan. Bake at 350 for about 12 minutes. Do NOT allow to brown. Set aside to cool while you prepare the filling.




FILLING - Mix 8 ounces Cream Cheese, 1/2 Cup Sweetener blend, 1 Egg, and 1 Teaspoon Vanilla.




Spread Filling onto Crust, and bake in a water bath for 35 minutes at 325 degrees. Do not overcook. This should just have a 'dry' look on top when done, and should not be brown anywhere. In this pic, the larger pan is filled half way up with water (That is what is meant by water bath).




Cool on counter, or in refrigerator. Top with Bananas.




TOPPING - Whip 1 Cup Heavy Cream until stiff. Add 2 Tablespoons Davinci Vanilla syrup, and whip a little more.




Spread 1/2 of the whipped topping over the bananas, and add the pineapple.




Cover the pineapple with the second half of the whipped topping. Top with Walnuts, Chocolate drizzle, and Maraschino Cherries (optional).




Put in mouth and enjoy!





1 Cup Almond Flour..................640 calories........12 carbs........56 fat........24 protein
8 ounces Cream Cheese............792 calories..........6 carbs.....79.1 fat......17.1 protein
1 egg......................................71 calories.......(.4)carbs..........5 fat.......(.3) protein
3 Tablespoons Butter................305 calories.........0 carbs......34.6 fat..........1 protein
1 Cup Heavy Cream...................821 calories......6.6 carbs......88.1 fat.......4.9 protein
Banana (108 grams)....................96 calories.....21.9 carbs......(.4) fat.......1.2 protein
Pineapple (68 grams)..................33 calories.......7.6 carbs..........0 fat......(.4) protein
Walnuts (30 grams)..................200 calories.......2.0 carbs.........20 fat.........5 protein
Sweetener (1/2 Cup + 2 Tbsp).......8 calories.......2.0 carbs..........0 fat.........0 protein
2 Tablespoons DaVinci syrup..........0 calories..........0 carbs..........0 fat.........0 protein
1/4 ounce Pre-melted Cocoa........40 calories..........1 carbs..........4 fat......(.5) protein
1 Teaspoon Sweetener for Cocoa...0 calories..........0 carbs..........0 fat.........0 protein
Totals..................................3006 calories.......59.5 carbs.....287.2 fat.....54.4 protein

Per serving (12 slices)..............250 calories........4.9 carbs.........24 fat........4.5 protein


The Cherries are optional, and 2 carbs each (ouch)! I picked mine off, but your non low carb friends will love them!

The bananas slices are probably only about 1/8 inch thick, but they pack a ton of flavor. You can see that I got about 34 good slices from a medium sized banana.

I also used Pineapple Chunks (in juice, not syrup). Each chunk was also cut into 4 to 6 pieces, but again, added alot of flavor.

Oh, WOW! I usually try to bring a very special low-carb and gluten-free dessert to our big family Thanksgiving dinner. If I don't, I have to skip dessert, and that's nothing to be thankful for!

Hopefully by Thanksgiving I'll be recovered enough from my upcoming surgery to bake this and take it. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

THis is such a clever idea. We could use it with a variety of fruits. I would like to try it, but it will have to be when company is coming. I have portion control issues. Thanks so much for your ideas and pictures.

I use to make a high carb version of this, no bake. The filling I used was
Quote:
2 cups confectioners' sugar
2 eggs
1 cup butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla

In the medium bowl of an electric mixer combine confectioners sugar, eggs, and softened butter, beat at medium speed for 20 minutes. (This step is important, so don't try to save time).
This filling really tastes like ice cream. Yes it has raw eggs but I never had a problem with it, nor did anyone I served it to.


I wonder if it would turn out as well with powdered erythritol and a little splenda or stevia. I will have to try it sometime.

Thanks bobo, for the reminder about this really great dessert.

I'm definitely going to try this - looks wonderful!

But instead of bananas, I'm going to use mandarin oranges and pineapple, my favorite combination.

Thanks for the recipe, BoBo

Thanks for "legalizing" one of my favorite desserts! When I used to make the high carb version I always served it slightly frozen. Very good.

coconutmilk...............you are right, no one will ever know this is low carb




shadowzip..............yes, Erythritol will work well here, that is what I used. My sweetener blend is 1 Cup Erythritol, 1 Splenda Quick Pack, and 1/8 teaspoon Stevia.

I originally tried to make this no-bake for simplicity, but I did not like the 'crunch' that the sugar had. That is why I had to bake it, just to melt the sugar!




eastbruce...............if mandarin oranges and pineapple are your thing, you might prefer this: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...endy-pics.html




SueMc...................slightly frozen huh? I'll try that tonight, thanks for the tip.



Everybody................thanks for the compliments!!!

I would like to add this tiny hint: To keep your bananas from going darker..dip them briefly in the pineapple juice from the pineapple..

I do think this would be a great dish for a crowd..To be eaten in one or two days for sure..

Thanks..

Allie.................my own website? Naw, way too many good cooks on here
Sweets are my 'thang' though, so if you're ever looking for something sweet, I'm your man



CarolynF.............the bananas are turning brown quick, I will remember your tip next time (and there will be a next time very soon)!!!



SueMc..................GREAT TIP!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everybody, stick this in the freezer for 20 minutes before eating!!! Tastes even better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




mslaster................all of the sweeteners are dry, shelf ingredients. Simply store in a sealed container on your shelves. There is no need to refrigerate. Also, please see the note to SueMc above...........stick this in the freezer for 20 minutes before consuming.

Hi Babsy,

For the chocolate glaze, I used a 1 ounce pack of the Nestle pre-melted unsweetened chocolate. Add 1 Tablespoon sweetener blend, and melt the two together in the microwave. All you are doing is trying to get the erythritol to melt so that it does not have a gritty texture.

Put the mixture in a plastic bag, and cut a 1/16th inch hole in the corner. Drizzle onto cake. I only used about 1/4 of the mix, that is why the cocoa is listed as just 1/4 ounce above.

Also, the chocolate should be a little bittersweet, so don't try to make it sweeter by adding more sweetener.

Don't forget to stick your single serving in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes before eating. It really makes a big difference.

Hope you enjoy your cake as much as I am, and have been enjoying mine

I have never heard or seen nestle pre-melted chocolate. Is it liquidy when you buy it or are you saying you melt nestle chips or something?

Hi Babsy,

It comes in little 1 ounce foil packs (about 8 in a box I think). Yes, it is kind of like a paste.

If you can't find it, you could probably also just melt some sugar free Hersheys chips (I seen them at Wal-Mart the other day). They are sweetened with Maltitol, but you will be using such a small amount that you shouldn't have any of the side effects normally associated with Maltitol.

You could also probably just use a semi sweet baking square.

By the way, my bananas turned brown really fast. You should try dipping them in the pineapple juice like CarolynF suggested.

This is YUMMY !!! I am already down to just 5 pieces

They are with the other baking chocolates and cocoas. There are 8 envelopes of liquid chocolate in a box.

If I'd waited ten seconds Bobo would have answered your "?"
