You will need:

Apple, Banana and Peanut Butter Cake ingredients
  • 2 cups diced, apples (200g)

  • 2 medium eggs

  • 2 overripe bananas

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (240g)

  • 1 cup sugar (200g)

  • 1 tsp vanilla

How to:

Apple, Banana and Peanut Butter Cake batter

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4

  2. Line two loaf tins with baking parchment

  3. In a mixing bowl, mash the overripe bananas with a fork

  4. Add all other ingredients apart from the apples and mix well

  5. Add the apples and mix again slowly

  6. Divide the mixture equally between the two loaf tins

  7. Bake for 35-40 minutes at 180C/gas4 (insert a wooden skewer in the middle of the cake after the stated time, and if the skewer does not come out clean, bake for an extra 5 minutes, or until the skewer comes out clean)

  8. Leave the loaves to cool down completely

  9. In a small bowl mix the icing sugar with a teaspoon of water or lemon/orange juice and mix until you have a smooth paste

  10. Drizzle the icing on top of the cooled down loaves and leave it to dry

  11. When the icing is completely dried, slice and enjoy!

Apple, Banana and Peanut Butter Cake
  • The cake itself is very balanced when it comes to sweetness, so adding the icing won't make it overly sweet (plus it looks great) but you can omit the icing if you're not a fan of it in general.

Apple, Banana and Peanut Butter Cake
  • You can use frozen overripe bananas if you have them available. I usually have some in the freezer because they're super handy to have for both this recipe and Banana Bread.

  • You can use a round or square/rectangular cake tin (10'x12') instead of the loaf tins if you don't have the latter available.

  • This beautiful cake lasts for about 3 to 4 days at room temperature in an air-tight container.

  • This cake is dairy-free and can be made gluten-free as well if swapping the plain flour for the gluten-free version.
