I’m back with another installment of testing pound cakes for you!! It’s such. a. hard. job! But, seriously, a job that needs to be done.
I’m the girl to get the job done!
I asked for suggestions on what frosting to pair with a banana cake on Facebook and the responses were amazing. Now, of course, I want to try all their suggestions. First up Peanut Butter Glazed Banana Pound Cake!
This Peanut Butter Glazed Banana Pound Cake is reallllly rich. It has a very fine texture with a nice banana flavor. To be honest, it was great without the peanut butter glaze. If you’re not into really sweet cakes, I suggest leaving the peanut butter glaze off.
This is the same glaze I put on my Peanut Butter Pound cake and it’s one of my favorites. I put it on everything I can so it was a natural fit for this Banana Pound Cake.
