Banana Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting | The Weary Chef

Easy Banana Cake

This simple banana cake comes together easily. Eat it on its own, or top with peanut butter, chocolate, or cream cheese icing!

  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 12 1x


Units Scale
  • 4 ripe bananas mashed
  • 1/2 c. raw sugar turbinado, substitute granulated sugar if desired
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar lightly packed
  • 1/2 c. vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c. plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 c. whole wheat flour substitute all-purpose flour if desired
  • 1 c. all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • frosting of choice optional
  • 1/4 c. mini chocolate chips optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13″ baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl (I used the bowl of my stand mixer), mash bananas. Add sugars, vegetable oil, eggs, yogurt, and vanilla. Mix with an electric mixer on medium-speed or vigorously by hand until well combined.
  3. Add flours to wet ingredients, and sprinkle baking soda and salt over the flour (not into the wet batter). Stir on low speed or gently by hand until just combined.
  4. Pour batter into prepared dish, and bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before optionally adding frosting and sprinkling with chocolate chips.
