Chocolate Peanut Butter and Banana Cake

“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.”
