Bananas Cake


The name of this cake definitely does not do it justice. It is so much more than a banana cake. A beautiful 3 layer cake that, although it has numerous steps, is well worth the effort. Filled with a creamy peanut butter filling and milk chocolate ganache, then covered with ganache and finally drenched in a chocolate glaze. Who could ask for more?

layer # 2 with peanut butter filling and milk chocolate ganache

all three layers with the crumb coat

final frosting
roasted salted peanuts for that little extra crunch

This is a perfect cake for a special occasion and if you're willing to give yourself a little challenge, then go for it! If not- just give me a call- I love a challenge!!!

You can find the recipe at Baked Sunday Mornings.


  1. Beautiful job, Yael! It looks soooo yummy, and I'm glad to hear it was really delicious. I'm about to make mine and I'm nervous about that frosting! Yours looks like it came out just right for spreading. :)

  2. Gorgeous! I miss Baked Sunday Mornings and just may have to start baking with you guys again!

  3. Looks awesome Yael! Did you find the cake layers dry at all?

    1. No Robyn, the cake itself was actually quite moist!

    2. Robyn, mine was a bit dry and crumbly. I think it was because my oven temp was jacked up, but it's something I'd like to play with...

  4. Wasn't this just delicious? I need to work on the frosting but the flavors were wonderful! Yours looks wonderful!

  5. Loving the extreme closeup of the ganache and peanuts! YUM.


Thanks for reading! I'd love to hear from you!
