By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 50 minutes

Servings: 12



  • 1 (18 1/4-oz) package yellow cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 2 sticks butter, 1 melted and 1 for filling
  • 1 (8-oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 whole banana, mashed
  • 1 (16-oz) box powdered sugar
  • mint leaves, for garnish
  • whipped cream, for garnish


Preheat the oven to 350 °F.

Combine the cake mix, egg, and 1 stick melted butter together and mix well. Pat into a lightly greased glass 13 by 9-inch baking pan. Prepare the filling.

Beat cream cheese until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla. Add the peanut butter; beat. Add the banana and 1 stick butter and mix well. Add the powdered sugar and mix well. Spread over the cake mixture. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes. You want the center to be a little gooey, so do not over bake. Top each cake slice with a mint leaf and dollop of whipped cream.
