This Banana Cake tastes great simply served warm, sprinkled with powdered sugar.  However, if you want to take it up a notch, cool completely and top with Peanut Butter Powder Cream Cheese Frosting.

MIX cream cheese, butter, and vanilla in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment on low speed until just combined. Don’t whip. Add powdered sugar and PBFit mix until smooth.

We topped our old fashion banana cake with our peanut powder frosting and then topped it with a little cocoa powder and chopped peanuts. 

This is optional of course but we thought it let people know what flavors they were about to taste.
