  • 2 Large, ripe bananas (or slightly overripe for more banana flavour)
  • 200 g sugar
  • 150 g butter, softened
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 4 T crunchy or smooth peanut butter
  • 240 g cake flour
  • 2 t baking powder
  • ¼ t salt

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Mash the bananas using a fork or an electric-hand mixer. Add the sugar, butter, eggs and peanut butter and combine.

2. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients slowly mixing with the hand-mixer or using a silicone spatula to ensure that the mixture is well-combined and that there are no pockets of flour.3. Grease a muffin pan, doughnut moulds or an 24 cm loaf pan. Sprinkle in some salted peanuts and fill with the batter.

4. Bake for 15 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
