Peanut Butter Banana Cake Recipe

Peanut Butter Banana Cake Recipe

I've had this well-worm recipe for as long as I've been married. I often make it for potluck functions. The ladies love it, but the heavy texture is a real favorite with men.—Lee Deneau, Lansing, Michigan

"Great cake for the peanut butter lover! I added about 1/3 c. mini chocolate chips to the cake and used maybe half the sugar in the frosting. Turned out great! :)"

"Great change of pace from banana bread. Peanut butter frosting might have been a bit too sweet - I may cut back on the powdered sugar next time. Still, it was delicious!"

"Loved the frosting! The cake batter was beautiful, fluffywas a great mix but the cake actually fell. I think the high altitude affected it as did the temp. Will have to try alternatives. The combination of bananas and peanut butter is fabulous!"

"I loved this! Was a huge hit with the family. I added more bananas for the cake and cut down on the confectioners' sugar for the frosting. Added more milk to the frosting to make smooth. Next time I'll make cupcakes (mini) so everyone can have a small taste."

"So good! I halved the recipe since there are only two dessert eaters in the family. Big mistake--by the time I got done giving pieces away, I should've made the full recipe. Will definitely make again! Thanks so much for sharing."

"THE CAKE WAS KIND OF DRY AND I KNOW HOW TO BAKE. IT WAS MORE LIKE BREAD, NOT CAKE. AND THE FROSTING WASN'T FROSTING IT WAS A GLAZE. IT WOULD OF BEEN GOOD ON COOKIES THAT COMPLIMENT. THIS GLAZE IS SUPER YUMMY, JUST NOT ON THIS CAKE! WON'T EVER MAKE THIS AGAIN!"

"I loved making this. For those who need a chocolate fix- you can add 1/4 cup cocoa to the cake mix for a chocolately banana taste that makes your family go WOW! My SO loves it and the chocolate peanut butter frosting I make as well."

"This is a delicious cake, definately worth making. Make sure to bake this cake till center tests done....I took it out too soon and middle wasn't done. I cut it out and patched the cake back together in a smaller pan and the icing hides all!"
