Ingredients

Crust Layer

  • 10 graham crackers, finely crushed (about 1 1/2 cups of crumbs)
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Ice Cream Layer

  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • 1/2 cup dulce de leche or caramel sauce
  • 1.5 quart butter pecan ice cream, softened
  • 3/4 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped

Topping

  • 1/2 cup dulce de leche or caramel sauce
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon pecans, finely chopped
  • whipped cream for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, sugar, and vanilla. Pour into the bottom of either a springform pan or a pie dish. If using a springform, press crumb mixture into bottom of pan. If using pie dish, press into bottom and up the walls of the pie pan. Bake for 12 minutes. Set aside to cool. 
  • For the ice-cream layer, arrange the sliced bananas on top of the graham crust. Pour on dulce de leche or caramel sauce. Place the softened ice-cream in a large mixing bowl. In a microwave safe bowl, add the butterscotch chips and about 1/4 cup of ice-cream. Microwave until melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Pour the melted chips and chopped pecans into the ice-cream and stir to combine but do not over mix. Pour into pan and freeze for at least an hour. 
  • Remove the cake from the freezer and pour the remaining dulce de leche or caramel sauce on top. Arrange the remaining banana slices around the edge of the cake. Sprinkle the pecans in the middle. Return to freezer for another 15 minutes or until ready to serve. 
  • When ready to serve, allow to sit at room temperature before cutting or removing the springform. Serve with whipped cream (optional).  

Notes

Note that you could also substitute plain vanilla ice cream for butter pecan, or any flavor you like. Delicious!
