This salute to Elvis Presley's favorite food combo, peanut butter and bananas, truly takes the cake! Bake it up any time you want to enjoy a rich-tasting cake that'll make your gang feel like royalty!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mashed banana (about 3 ripe bananas)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 6 tablespoons 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.
