Double Chocolate Banana Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

After a very long day, I needed something quick & easy to take to the church dinner the next morning. I rummaged through my cabinets & this is what I came up with! I baked the cake that evening & frosted it the next morning. It was a huge hit at the dinner & everyone raved over it!

The cake is really moist and the frosting is strong on peanut butter and isn’t super sweet.
