Our mission continues to find new ways to use up those brown speckled bananas that are always on the counter top. We have featured chocolate banana breads, banana cake, banana muffins and banana cupcakes to name a few but today, peanut butter enters the mix.

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cake

The idea is inspired by the many peanut butter and banana sandwiches I ate as a kid. When my mom wasn’t looking, I’d add a sprinkle of chocolate chips.

Dark Chocolate Chips, to melt and dip the biscotti

I always use 50% cocoa dark chocolate chips but you can substitute any kind you like..

Those were silently and stealthily procured from the kitchen pantry cupboard to made their way into many a sandwich.

This cake deliciously combines all three elements into a great dessert cake to end any meal or at a weekend brunch.

Hi Barry,

Your recipes are great!!! The sticky toffee pudding is THE BEST !!

Just wondering do you leave the cake in the pan to cool completely before removing?

Also, as a lover of maple syrup, are there any new recipes utilizing that delicious treat on the way?

Thanks again,

Scott

This sounds so good, but I’m surprised to see OJ. What’s the purpose? Do you taste it much-I’m not a fan of orange deserts, can it be omitted or replaced?
