Top Review by Kat Wood

This was an awesome recipe! First of all, I love cake mix recipes because they lend themselves to experimentation so well. I had two whole batches of bananas going bad at one time, so made two versions. The one printed here was sooo good! I recommend microwaving the peanut butter and the frosting together in a bowl and then stirring. Also, it goes on the cake more easily if the cake itself is still warm. The second version I tried was with a spice cake mix--all else the same, although I think a butterscotch pudding would be interesting, too. I used a pecan coconut frostingl (the popular one for German chocolate cakes), and wow!! Next time (probably Thanksgiving) I'll do the spice version with caramel frosting and see which one I like better. Happy baking! Kari
