Peace!

This is the first time I am visiting your site. Came thru google, while searching for a peanut butter cake with bananas. I am planning to make it whole wheat version, let's see. Will post how it turns out . Thanks sister.

If you want to try wheat then I'd recommend doing half wheat, half white flour. Full-wheat bread (quick or yeast) turns out heavy. Whenever I make wheat bread I always go 50/50.

Otherwise, sounds like it'd work. Hope it turns out for you.

Hi Doyle,

I did the cake. But it wasnt risen enough...and not soft like bread too. turned out like a big soft cookie. Pl let me know wat went wrong. My substitutions are as below.

2 bananas
2 cup flour (0.5 cup all purpose and 1.5 cup millet n wheat)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup and a table spoon of olive oil (ran out of butter!!)
2 eggs

and i baked for 30 mins.

This is after a long time I baked cakes or cookies...so had no idea wat happenned to t preparation. Wait for your inputs :(

I'm not totally sure what went wrong. In general, when something turns out too "cookie-ish", I add additional flour the next time. (And when cookies turn out too "cake-ish" I reduce the flour)

If you try again then I'd also recommend using real butter. Oil is not typically used in quick breads and would change the consistency.

Was it at least a good cookie?

Yeah...It jus wasnt t cake..but the taste was excellent...so we are cutting t solid cake n eating like a biscotti. In the same day I had tried anise cookies..and I wanted to make them salty, as my son loves only salty n spicy things...no sweets strange right? but even the cookies dint bake properly...they were powdery even if we touch it. dunno what went wrong there. was wondering what you people do if a cookie comes out powdery or cake comes out like a cookie...do u still find a way to use it or trash it?

I'm not a picky eater, so I still eat the things that don't turn out well.

Generally, if it turns out too crumbly then there's either too much flour or sugar, or not enough butter. That'd be my best suggestion.
