Good banana flavor, moist, dense. A winner! I used 4 very large very ripe bananas, which mashed = 2 cups, and the cake turned out perfectly. I also added 1/2 teaspoon salt, for as an experienced baker, I know baked goods taste best with a bit of salt added. Note however that I only baked the cake for 45 minutes in an oven calibrated to 350 degrees via my trusty oven thermometer. I have found that substituting 1/4 cup of the butter with applesauce does not change the flavor or texture of the cake one iota, and does cut down the fat a smidge. I also didn't put the topping on, as I don't like really sweet toppings. A cream cheese frosting would be lovely. I love this cake unfrosted -- a great and healthy snack cake, and a yummy breakfast alternative too.-03 Jan 2004
This recipe was great! My husband raved about it, which he never does! I followed everything exactly except I added a little salt and only used 3 bananas because that's all I had. I frosted it with a cream cheese frosting and it turned out perfect!-29 Nov 2006
I made this cake but did not put the icing on it and I froze it for a month before I used it. The cake was moist and received rave reviews by my guest. You could not tell it had been frozen.-18 Mar 2003
- cooking spray
- 4 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 (15.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
- ½ cup water
- 2 large eggs
- ¼ cup vegetable oil
- 1 ½ cups peanut butter chips
- ¼ cup honey
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray two 9x5-inch loaf pans with cooking spray.
Combine bananas, cake mix, water, eggs, and oil in a large bowl. Whisk until well blended, about 2 minutes. Gently fold in peanut butter chips. Divide batter evenly between the prepared loaf pans.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the centers comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Let bread cool in pans for 10 minutes. Remove and finish cooling on a wire rack. Place a second cooling rack on top of a baking sheet.
Slice loaves in half horizontally and then into 1-inch-thick pieces. Brush 1 side of each slice lightly with honey and place on the prepared cooling rack.
Bake in the preheated oven until golden and crispy, about 40 minutes. Cool on the rack for at least 10 minutes the biscotti will become crispier as they cool.
Chocolate Banana Cake With Peanut Butter Frosting
psychologists have found that baking for loved ones promote a sense of well being not only for the recipient but for the baker as well? Whenever someone gifts me a box filled with homemade cookies I still get weak in the knees and feel like it&rsquos the most special gift ever!
This is a Chocolate Banana Cake. I want to tell you up front it is not &ldquotoo banana-y&rdquo. So if you have someone in the family that isn&rsquot a big banana fan don&rsquot be scared of this cake. The cake is made with semi sweet chocolate chips and cocoa powder so it&rsquos very decadent with chocolate.
The cake is made with 3/4 cup flour which is going to create a super fluffy cake that is going to slide right out of the pan! I always use Bob&rsquos Red Mill products when it comes to making my baked goods truly shine, so I use their All-Purpose Organic Flour for all my favorite cake recipes.
This is a small chocolate cake recipe, fitting perfectly in a 8×8 pan! That means you can eat the whole cake and not feel too bad &ndash just kidding!
peanut butter frosting recipes because to me this is just perfect. Once the frosting is made, grab some peanuts and crush them &ndash we&rsquoll be using this for decoration on the cake!
Let’s talk about the fluffy peanut butter frosting
Guys. This peanut butter frosting is fluffy, perfectly sweet and slightly addicting. To make it you’ll need just:
- softened butter (or a vegan buttery stick)
- powdered sugar
- natural, creamy peanut butter
- a few splashes of almond milk to make it extra creamy
Whip it up and spread it on to take this banana cake to the NEXT LEVEL. I re-tested it a couple of times to make it perfect, and let’s just say Abra and I were straight dipping apples in it the second time around. If you have extra frosting I’d recommend using it as a dip for your favorite fruit, pretzels, graham crackers or even a cookie recipe!
Eggless Banana Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake
I’m bringing you eggless banana chocolate peanut butter mug cake to satisfy those sweet cravings after all the healthy food we’ve been eating. Because I get it, we can’t live without our dessert. It’s the best kind of satisfaction. And I think mug cakes are so convenient. They can be almost guilt free because you don’t really need that second helping and you don’t have a second or third slice to reach for.
You remember how I spoke to you about the big 3-0 last week? Yesterday was my birthday and I had such a fabulous time. My best friends were down to visit me and help me celebrate and I’ve been super low since they left. Because we really had the best time ever. I haven’t met them in over a year and a half and as soon as we met, it was like nothing had changed. We spent hours talking and giggling over the silliest things. Best friends do that to you right? Make you forget everything else and give you a chance to just relax.
I sort of made this mug cake for breakfast – yes breakfast – no judging please- because I really needed some comfort food. To make me forget how awful it felt when your friends leave.
And this banana chocolate peanut butter mug cake is just the thing for sulking. It is so easy that it can’t even be called dessert, but it so is! Chocolatey, moist, slightly gooey and perfect when you want dessert for one.
Whoever invented mug cakes is genius. I really prefer my banana chocolate peanut butter mug cake with no eggs in it. Mug cakes are such small, single serving cakes that a tiny amount of baking soda or powder is enough to make them rise and keep them light and fluffy. An entire egg just gives mug cakes an eggy taste IMHO and is totally unnecessary.
So only a few delicious ingredients, no eggs please, and you have the lightest most chocolatey mug cakes ready in under five minutes!
I love topping mine with extra peanut butter or even chocolate chips because in our case, toppings are everything right? Since we are only talking a small dessert and not an entire cake, don’t feel guilty about adding some whipped cream, or ice cream or even extra chocolate sauce if you are into that kind of thing. Here’s to quick, easy desserts, to turning 30 and staying fabulous!

You guys have probably figured out by now that I’m a total sucker for anything peanut butter and chocolate. It’s pretty much my jam. I love that flavor combination so much and the only way I’ve found to improve upon it is with banana. Banana and peanut butter together? Yes. Banana and chocolate together? Yes. Banana, peanut butter, and chocolate? Triple yes!
This cake is crazy easy to make and uses three lovely ripe bananas so if you’ve got those lying around, you’re in luck. I used buttermilk for a wonderfully moist cake and tender crumb and then topped the whole thing with my favorite peanut butter chocolate glaze that you may remember from the Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pound Cake recipe earlier this year.
The rich glaze makes my mouth water it’s so good. I love how easy it is too! Just chocolate chips and peanut butter melted together in the microwave – yum!
I topped the whole cake with Reese’s miniature peanut butter cups…because I can. Y’all know I’ve got a serious addiction when it comes to Reese’s. You can check out a plethora of Reese’s recipes here.
This Reese’s Peanut Butter Banana Cake is made in a 13 inch pan which makes it wonderfully easy and perfect for crowds. Definitely a cake that will disappear fast at any party!
Banana & choc bundt cake with peanut caramel drizzle
Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Grease a 2.5-litre bundt tin (ours was 26cm in diameter) with some melted butter, making sure you get in all the crevices. Mix the cocoa with 50ml kettle-hot water and set aside to cool.
Mash the bananas, then stir in the butter, milk, eggs and vanilla. In another bowl, combine the flour, bicarb, sugar and 1/2 tsp salt. Shake the bowl a few times to encourage any lumps of sugar to come to the surface, squeeze them through your fingers and mix again.
Stir the banana mixture into the dry ingredients, then transfer half the cake mixture to another bowl. Add the cocoa mix, 50g yogurt and the chocolate chips to one bowl, and the remaining 100g yogurt and 50g peanuts to the other.
Scrape the peanut mixture into the prepared tin, then spoon over the chocolate mixture. Swirl a skewer through the two cake mixtures to create a marbled effect. Bake on the middle shelf for 1 hr. Check the cake is cooked by inserting a skewer into the centre of the sponge – if it comes out coated in any wet mixture, return to the oven for 10 mins more, then check again. Cool for 15 mins in the tin, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Mix the caramel with 1 tbsp milk to create a drizzly icing. Once the cake is cool, drizzle over the icing and scatter with the remaining peanuts. Will keep in a tin for four days.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Upside Down Cake Recipe
This Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Upside Down Cake is insanely delicious. The combo of flavors and textures is unmatched, and you’ll lose your mind over the ooey-gooey peanut butter caramel topping! This Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Upside Down Cake is not the most beautiful dessert, but it’s positively divine!
I think we can all agree that there are different types of desserts in this world, and they are suitable for different types of occasions. Some desserts are more fancy and formal, while others are quite unpretentious and uncomplicated.
Some are seasonal – like for holidays, and other desserts, perhaps no-bake desserts and ice cream recipes, are most fitting for spring and summer.
Right?? We all agree. Eat anything, anytime you want, but most things have an optimal time and place.
This Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Upside Down Cake is like the sweatpants of desserts. It’s the least fancy, least presentable, most messy dessert of all time. This is the kind of dessert that you serve to a small group of close friends when they’re over to share a few bottles of wine. You can all just dive in with a fork! Or what you and your significant other share on a nice and cozy movie night.
It’s one of the most fabulous desserts you’ll ever try, but it’s like sweatpants. You don’t want to take this Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Upside Down Cake to your in-laws for Christmas dinner, just like you probably wouldn’t wear sweatpants to a holiday either. Oh wait, I do that all the time.
This Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Upside Down Cake is kinda ugly food! As long as something tastes good, I’m a happy camper, and I don’t care too much whether it’s beautiful and impressive to look at. I care that it’s mouthwatering and decadent and delicious. As far as that goes, this Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Upside Down Cake doesn’t disappoint!
The layer of peanut butter caramel on top is beyond generous. There’s tons and tons of that gooey, sticky caramel, and it drips and seeps down everywhere. The bananas caramelize while they bake, so they’re ultra soft and sweet. And the chocolate peanut butter cake… it’s crispy on the edges, but moist and dense on the inside, almost like brownies.
The cake layer is so rich and moist, and all the flavors together are just insane. I’m sure I don’t need to sell you on the combo of chocolate, peanut butter, and bananas!
I have a bunch of recipes with that amazing trifecta, and some of the most popular are these Chocolate Crepes with Peanut Butter Marshmallow Filling & Caramelized Bananas. They’re a little extra work, but worth it. A total dessert crepe! And these Peanut Butter Banana Brownies and this Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Banana Bread feature the same awesome flavors.
The ingredient list for this Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Upside Down Cake looks long, but they’re all common and easy to find. The directions are quite simple and straight-forward too. While this Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Upside Down Cake recipe is not the prettiest to look at, it is one of the most incredible desserts to taste!
