Peanut Butter Apple Banana Cake

These days there are lots of cake and cookie recipes being shared and each and every one is enticing and tempting.  But what caught my attention with this particular recipe is two things – one, my daughter Rani loves peanut butter.  Two, I was running way low on sugar and was trying to figure out how to make something sweet with less sugar and this recipe fit that criteria perfectly as it only required 1/4 cup of white sugar 😊.  The sweetness in this cake comes from 2 ripe bananas and an apple. Between the bananas and apple and all the peanut butter and chocolate chips, the cake is soft, moist and delicious.  Kind of like a Reeses peanut butter cup but in a cake form.   This is an awesome cake for those of you who love peanut butter and chocolate!

The only modification I made to the recipe from Averiecooks.com  is adding chocolate chips instead of the original 1 cup of butterscotch chips and peanut butter chips.  So how did Rani like the cake? She loved it!  The one comment she made is that the cake would taste great with a few walnuts next time!

  •  1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  •  1/4 cup granulated sugar
  •  1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  •  1/4 cup sour cream (lite is okay; or Greek yogurt may be substituted)

  •  1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  •  1/2 teaspoon baking powder
