Scratch-Made Banana Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting Recipe is the ultimate dessert for the ultimate banana and peanut butter lover!
A classic banana cake is topped with a fluffy, creamy peanut butter frosting. This cake is soft and decadent and amazing!
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 on 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.
Growing up I loved 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.

- 3/4 cup vegetable oil
- 4 eggs beaten
