This is a classic, however, I have a secret to tell... I don't like bananas. Except bananas in this cake...


2¼ cups all-purpose flour

1½ cups sugar

1½ teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3)

¾ cup buttermilk (or sour milk)

½ cup butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

5 tablespoons of peanut butter (diluted in 2 tablespoon of warm water)

3 tablespoons of toasted sesame seeds

2 eggs


  1. Grease and lightly flour baking pan, sprinkle the sesame seeds, set aside.

  2. In a large mixing bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add bananas, buttermilk or sour milk, butter, and vanilla. Beat till combined. Add eggs and beat. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, drizzle the peanut butter mixture in the middle of the batter.

  3. Bake in a 350°degrees centigrade oven for 25 to 30 minutes or till a wooden toothpick comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on wire racks for 10 minutes.

  4. Remove cake from pan. Cool thoroughly on a rack.


To test whether a cake (or one made with ground nuts or crumbs) is done baking, touch the top lightly. The cake is done if the top springs back. When making cakes with ground nuts or crumbs, you'll notice that they do not have domed tops like most other cakes. Instead, their tops are flat or slightly depressed.
