It's two desserts in one!

It’s a good thing we stock up on peanut butter, because we’re going to need it. Averie Sunshine’s new cookbook, Peanut Butter Comfort, has over 100 innovative, delicious and yes, totally comforting peanut butter recipes. Next up, peanut butter-spiked banana bread pudding cake that’s…how many desserts crammed into one? 

This cake was never supposed to happen. I was goofing around one day in the kitchen with some ripe bananas and impulsively added a packet of dry pudding mix to the batter. I didn’t realize until after the cake cooled and I had a bite that I created my favorite banana cake of all time. This is a dense cake, similar to banana bread in cake form. The pudding and sour cream help the cake stay incredibly moist and the glaze is heaven sent — rich, buttery, intensely caramel-flavored—and takes an already stellar cake to the next level. This is one of my favorite recipes in the book.
