“From "Cake Mix Magic." Uses a devil's food cake mix (a nice change from the yellow cake mix seen in other recipes for similar cakes). Basically, a chocolate banana cake with chocolate peanut butter glaze. Yum. The author notes that chunky peanut butter can be used for the glaze if desired but will not produce a smooth satiny glaze. Prep time is an estimate.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Cake
  • 1 (18 1/4 ounce) package devil's food cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 12 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3 or 4 large bananas)
  • 12 cup vegetable oil
  • Chocolate Peanut Butter Glaze
  • 4 (1 ounce) semi-sweet chocolate baking squares
  • 23 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 13 cup chopped peanuts (optional)


  1. Cake: Preheat oven to 350*F. In a large mixer bowl, combine all cake ingredients. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes, or until smooth. Spread batter evenly in a greased and floured 13-by 9-inch cake pan. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
  2. Glaze: In a small saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate and peanut butter, stirring constantly until smooth. Spread evenly over cooled cake. Sprinkle nuts on top, if desired.
