Tasty Tuesday: Banana Chocolate Chip Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

Posted Oct 02 2012 7:00am

I never post about food on this blog…mostly because I think I’ll look like a total hog since I don’t really eat like a healthy living blogger. So I’m going to make sure that I’m super clear that while this Banana Chocolate Chip Cake contains some fruit,  it’s actually the least healthy recipe in the history of recipes. Paula Deen would look at this recipe and say “Dang, ya’ll that’s a lot of butter and sugar and sour cream!”  On the other hand, this recipe is so delicious that if you decide to make it, you’ll really enjoy it.

One last disclaimer, I did not create this recipe. It’s not mine at all but it was so tasty I wanted to make sure I documented its creation for the whole internets to see. This recipe was published in the October Issue of Bon Appetit magazine and I made it exactly as it’s printed except I used 9×9 pans (which turned out to be a good thing because it would have overflowed an 8×8).

Ready for baking!

Once I realized how big and dense these two layers turned out, I decided to keep them separate and bring one over to the boyfriend’s parents house since we had plans to eat dinner with them.

It’s a Carly Bananas cake!

So moist and delicious. I wish I could find away to convey taste through a picture. It’s amazing.

Final thoughts: 

  • This was the easiest cake to make. Seriously, the instructions are  exactly descriptive enough to give you a perfect cake.
  • This recipe was amazing, but it’s 16 servings. If I make it again I’d definitely half the recipe because there’s rarely an instance where I need 16 servings of cake.
  • The frosting recipe yielded a ton of frosting (as evidenced by the crazy layer of frosting pictured above). I think I’d probably make a little less and include just a bit less powdered sugar because peanut butter is really sweet on its own. The cake would probably also taste pretty incredible without any frosting if that’s your thing – the bananas and sour cream make it really moist.
Now what do I do with the rest of this cake? Who wants some? :)
