Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Banana Bundt Cake
Overripe bananas are a gift and transform simple pantry ingredients into rock star desserts and quick breads. When I have some on the counter, it forces me to think of uses for them to avoid throwing them away. That usually results in something quite yummy indeed. Chocolate chips, peanut butter and bananas are a classic combination that always makes my family happy.
Helpful Tips for Making Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Banana Cake
- This batter for this bundt cake can be divided and baked in 2 standard size loaf pans. Loaves will bake differently so, check around 45 minutes for doneness and adjust time from there.
- You can use standard chocolate chips in the same amount for this recipe.
- I serve this cake without a glaze but, if you'd like to gild the lily a drizzle of melted chocolate would do nicely.
- You could use chunky peanut butter in this cake, if preferred.
- Enjoy with a cup of coffee, tea or a glass of cold milk.
- This bundt cake can be baked, cooled and then frozen tightly wrapped for up to 2 months.

My husband does not like cream cheese. Could I use peanut butter instead?
There's no cream cheese in this recipe. It does call for peanut butter, yes.
Are you able to use this in a regular cake pan instead of a bundt pan?
Sure, you can make it any shape you like, just consider the baking time and adjust accordingly.
Hi Melissa! I made this lovely cake today and it was really moist and tasty! My hubby loved it and had two hunks right away! Winner! I put it up against my best banana bread and he said it was best!
Hi Donna! I consider that high praise, thanks so much. It's wonderful to hear from you!
Hi, I have a question about the butter, is salted or unsalted, thanks
HI Irene in this cake you can use either/or. I know some bakers are finicky about controlling the salt in their baked goods but, honestly I've made this cake both ways and don't see much of a difference. Whatever you have on hand will be fine.
Hi Melissa, thanks for your answer, i will do it right now!!
No problem at all I'm always happy to help. ☺
If I don't have self rising flour, do I add baking powder?
Yes, you would need to add 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1 Tbsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp baking soda.
Hi Serena, I know if I froze every banana before it became useless I would run out of space, too! Happy baking, Melissa
