Remember back in the day when Banana Split desserts were all the rage? I do! I’m bringing it back with a pie instead of a huge dessert. Actually, my dad is bringing it back.

Dad’s Banana Split Pie

So, I was visiting my dad in my hometown in GA last week and I reminded him that his sour cream pound cake goes back and forth as the number one or two recipes on my site. He grinned real big and he replied: “Yeah, you told me. I’ve been thinking and I believe my Banana Split Pie will do great on your blog.”

Did my dad really say that? Well, yes he did. Then he proceeded to give me his recipe. I think my 86-year-old dad is trying to take over my website and I love it.
