Banana Chocolate Sprinkle Cake with Peanut Butter Glaze

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 medium ripe bananas, finely mashed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate sprinkles
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Chocolate sprinkles + crushed peanuts
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a bundt pan with cooking spray.

In a medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter, sugar and banana until creamy - about 1-2 minutes.  Beat in egg, one addition at a time, until well incorporated - about 2-3 minutes.  Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in dry ingredients, alternating with milk, until just combined.  Stir in chocolate chips and sprinkles until combined.  Pour batter into prepared pan.  Swirls blobs of peanut butter throughout the batter.

Bake 45-55 minutes (mine took about 50), or until well risen, golden brown, and a toothpick inserted into cake comes out with moist crumbs attached.  Cool on a wire rack for 10-15 minutes before releasing from pan.

To make the glaze - warm the peanut butter in the microwave for 20-30 seconds; whisk in confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla until well combined.  Drizzle glaze on top of cake.  Sprinkle sprinkles (ha!) and peanuts on top.

Makes 10-12 servings

  1. Oh man - that glaaaaaaze!! This cake looks fabulous!

  2. It must be nice to be able to create your own recipes! This looks delish and the glaze just nails it for me. Banana = breakfast = healthy

    I don't understand dislike of bananas either. ;)

  3. That looks amazing. Love how the little chocolate sprinkles make it look like a giant doughnut. I've been hankering after banana cake recently, love the peanut butter addition

  4. Finally you share this one. My husband doesn't like bananas either, but will eat banana bread and cake. It's a textural thing for him. I could eat bananas all day, but too many give me heartburn, go figure. I doubt this cake would do that to me, but even if it did, that would be worth it.

    1. Ah, I see that. See, that makes sense to me. They're kind of mushy.

  5. What kind of person doesn't like bananas? They're a basic food, for heaven's sake.
    This looks amazing - definitely going to give it a shot.

  6. This is all my favorite things in one! That peanut butter glaze....mmmm.
