Peanut Butter Sheet Cake with Banana Frosting, Elvis Presley


While thinking of flavor combinations the other I day I thought about Elvis Presley and how he loved peanut butter and banana sandwiches.  I've made a sandwich like that before and enjoyed it so I knew I liked the flavors.  At first I was going to make a banana cake with peanut butter frosting, but then I saw there were a million recipes like that already!  So I decided to flip it around and make a peanut butter cake with a banana frosting.  I'm happy to say that not only is it easy to make, but quite delicious too.  I think Elvis would be quite happy!

Ingredients are as follows:   

cake:
1 3/4 C brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
2 C flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 C butter
1 C water
1 C creamy peanut butter
1/2 C milk
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

frosting: 
1 ripe banana, softened
1/2 C butter
2 1/2 C powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla


Directions: 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease an 11.50 x 17.25 inch sheet pan.
