NO EGG BANANA SPLIT CAKE

This is an old recipe from my hometown of Bedford, Indiana.

2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup chocolate syrup
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter (not melted)
3 bananas
1 pint strawberries
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained & reserved
1 carton (9-oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1/2 cup chopped pecans
marashino cherries for garnish

In a small mixing bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs and the melted butter until well mixed. Spread the mixture onto the bottom of a 9 x 2 x 13-inch pan or casserole dish. Drizzle the chocolate syrup over the crust. Combine the powdered sugar and the (not melted) butter together and beat until fluffy. Pour this sugar mixture over the chocolate syrup. Slice the bananas into the reserved pineapple juice, drain and add along with the strawberries over the sugar mixture. Top evenly with the pineapple. Spread the whipped topping over all. Sprinkle the chopped pecans over the whipped topping and add cherries, as desired, for garnish.
