This cake is for you if you
a) love bananas…
b) love peanut butter…
d) love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups…
e) love Fluffernutter (marshmallow creme + peanut butter)
f) if you love all of these things together.
Is that you? Because it is so, totally me.
This cake is for you if you have a serious sweet tooth (yep, me!). But no cavities (crap!). This is the cake that made me acutely aware of a cavity I didn’t know I had. Yeah, lame. Now I have to go to the dentist so I can eat more really rich, really sweet cakes like this one.
It’s basically like banana bread on crack, turned into a cake, with chunks of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and frosted with a billion calories of fluffy peanut butter marshmallow heaven. The peanut butter marshmallow frosting, aka fluffernutter, is perfectly thick and fluffy and I can think of a million things I want to spread it on.
But you should definitely start with this cake!
