Banana Cake With Peanut Butter Frosting


Yesterday after church we all went to my daughter, Kamille’s house for dinner.

She had a great spread.

Oven fried chicken, roasted potatoes, asparagus, rolls, rice with mushrooms, it was all very good.

As I mentioned before in an earlier post, I took her set of dishes that I collected for her over the years to her.

Here is the cakeplate underneath this banana cake with peanut butter frosting that I made.

I put some chocolate chips on top because you just can’t have peanut butter without chocolate!!

Here is the recipe

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup butter or shortening
1 cup milk
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 eggs
2 mashed bananas
1 pkg of banana pudding mix

2/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.

In a large bowl, cream sugar and shortening until light and fluffy.

Add eggs one at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition.

Add flour mixture alternately with milk, beating just to combine.

 Finally, stir in vanilla, mashed bananas, and banana extract.

Pour batter evenly between two greased 9 inch round cake pans.

 Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.

Frosting

2 sticks of butter, room temperature
1 cup of smooth peanut butter.
4 cups of powdered sugar
Up to 2 Tbs milk

In an electric mixer cream together the butter and peanut butter until smooth and fully incorporated.

Add the powdered sugar a cup at a time and use milk to adjust the consistency to your liking.  

It was pretty good, too.
