Beat half the dry ingredients, then sour cream and bananas slowly. Beat in remaining dry ingredients. Add chocolate chips.


Step 3

Divide batter between pans. Bake cakes 35–40 minutes until golden brown and pulled away from edges. After 15 minutes, cool pans on racks.

Cool to freezing. Frosting cold cakes is easier. Even freeze the cake for 30 minutes.

Mix butter and peanut butter on medium-high speed in an electric mixer until fluffy. Blend vanilla, salt, and powdered sugar until frosting is fluffy.

Put one cake layer on a stand or turntable. Pipe a generous ring of frosting around the cake layer's top edge with a pastry bag and open tip for smooth coverage.

Add frosting to the ring and spread evenly. Turn the other cake layer upside-down on frosting for a flat cake. Spread the remaining frosting on the cake and smooth the edges with an offset spatula. 


Step 8

Sprinkle cake bottom with chocolate chips. Serve or refrigerate for 2 days. Bring to room temperature an hour before serving.
