Banana Split Cake

I looked online and couldn't find a recipe like the one I have that I got in the 1970s from Rosella from Garden Club.  This recipe was so good that I decided I would make it rather than try one of the others although I substitute 8 oz cream cheese for 1/2 cup butter and 2 eggs in the original recipe since the eggs would be raw which wasn't a problem back in the 70s.

Banana Split Cake
1/2 cup butter
1 cup flour
1/4 cup chopped nuts
1/4 cup brown sugar

Mix and line a greased 9 x 13 pan.  Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes

1st Layer:
2 cups confectioners sugar
8 oz cream cheese

Beat until creamy.  Spread over crust.  Cool in refrigerator for 15 minutes.

2nd Layer:
1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple well drained.

Spread over crust and Layer #1

3rd Layer:
3 bananas

Sliced over layers

4th Layer:
1 cup fresh sliced strawberries or 2 (10 oz) packages frozen strawberries drained.

Spread over earlier layers

5th Layer:
1 large container of Cool Whip spread over top
Sprinkle with chopped nuts

You can make the crust ahead of time and then add the other layers on the day you serve it.
