To create this mouthwatering Peanut Banana Chocolate Loaf Cake, you will need the following ingredients:

- 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional, for an extra chocolatey experience)
Now that we have gathered our ingredients, it’s time to dive into the baking process. Follow these simple steps to create the Peanut Banana Chocolate Loaf Cake:
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the mashed bananas, peanut butter, cocoa powder, granulated sugar, brown sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined and smooth.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, alternating with the milk. Mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix as this may result in a dense cake.
If desired, fold in the chocolate chips for an extra burst of chocolatey goodness.
Pour the batter into the greased loaf pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. The baking time may vary, so keep an eye on the cake towards the end.
Once baked, remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for about 10-15 minutes. Then transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.
Slice, serve, and enjoy! This Peanut Banana Chocolate Loaf Cake is perfect to enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee, or as a delicious dessert.
