Needed a quick dessert to bring to my brothers house and this was a great choice. So easy to put together and everyone really liked it. I didn't have any chopped nuts to to spruce it up a bit i topped with chocolate frosting. Used recipe #123920 "Grandmas chocolate fudge frosting" which was very good also but maybe a little to sweet for this cake.
I made this cake on Friday evening, and I have already made it again. I used chocolate chip cake batter and added more like 3/4 cup of peanuts. The second time that I made this, I drizzled some thinned out banana icing (also posted by Laurie). I am actually wondering what a peanut butter glaze would be like! I'd do anything to find more ways to combine peanuts and bananas!
This is an absolutely delicious cake that is so easy to make, thanks to the cake mix main ingredient! It turned out super moist, and the flavor is excellent--not artificial at all. I think that the addition of nuts truly enhances the flavor; I used chopped walnuts, and would definitely recommend that ingredient. This is a great, quick way to use up overripe bananas and to satisfy a fruity sweet tooth! Thanks for posting.
