July 9, 2012

This Elvis inspired banana bacon cake by Crumbs and Cookies is a dynamite dessert.  Elvis was known for his peanut butter, banana, and bacon sandwiches and this cake incorporates all those flavor.  The sweetness of the banana compliments the salty bacon perfectly and the whole cake is tied together with a homemade peanut butter frosting.  If you are looking for an interesting dessert, this banana bacon cake fits the bill.
