I had scheduled both the Elders and the Sisters for tea appointments this week, two days in a row and so I set about to do a dessert to serve them that I could actually use two days in a row and decided that a large cake would do the trick. I could cut it into squares and serve it with ice cream both nights. Whatever works, right?
Peanut Butter and Banana is a popular flavour combination in North America, and Todd actually also really enjoys it. I had some
Yay! I love it when that happens, and trust me when I say . . . it doesn't always! I used my favourite banana cake recipe an subbed some peanut butter (smooth) for a portion of the butter, and I used the peanut butter icing recipe from my favourite peanut butter cake.
The end result was a deliciously moist and dense banana cake with a light peanut butter flavour . . . topped with a rich and nutty icing, which I then topped with crushed banana chips, for just a bit of crunch! It went down a real treat to all concerned! Whew!
This would be a great "after-school" cake!
