Cooking Time: 25 min
What You'll Need:
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed banana (about 3 ripe bananas)
2 teaspoon vanilla extract, divided
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
6 tablespoon butter, softened
3 cups confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
What To Do:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat two 8-inch cake pans with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, cream the granulated sugar and shortening until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat thoroughly. Gradually blend in baking soda, flour, and salt. Beat in mashed banana and 1 teaspoon vanilla until thoroughly combined. Pour mixture into prepared cake pans.
3. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let sit 5 minutes, then remove cakes from pans and place on a wire rack to cool.
4. In another bowl, combine cream cheese, peanut butter, and butter; beat until fluffy. Add confectioners' sugar and remaining vanilla. Beat until thoroughly combined. Frost cake and sprinkle with peanuts.
