There’s A LOT going on in this breathtaking skillet cake, and it’s all for good reason. The buttery brown sugar mixture in the bottom of the pan caramelizes the bananas, and the creamy peanut butter is there to make everyone happy. Yes, the whole thing is extremely decadent, but it’s not too much. In fact, a warm, fresh slice could even use a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream on top.
