When I first started cooking, I cooked desserts. It was a long time before I made ‘real’ food. Making desserts is still my passion as you can tell from the 17+ pages of desserts here. I will spend hours making dessert, make a dessert over and over until it’s perfect, and generally obsess over any and all desserts. However, I don’t have that patience with other foods. I want quick and easy when it comes to cooking anything except desserts.
Scratch Made Banana Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting Recipe
Growing up I loved to get Southern Living magazine each month. I learned a lot about cooking and baking from that magazine. I especially loved the holiday editions with all the party foods and desserts. They always had a big beautiful cake featured in the December issue.
This Scratch-made Banana Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting Recipe is my big, beautiful, celebration cake. It will be perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas, but it is seasonless and would make a show-stopping birthday cake or any celebration that you need a big beautiful cake for!
Because I love peanut butter and have dozens of peanut butter recipes on here, I topped this cake with a fluffy, smooth and creamy peanut butter frosting. It will also be great on a white or chocolate cake or cupcakes.
This makes a beautiful show-stopper cake for any holiday or celebration.
