  1. Prepare the Frosting:
    • In a saucepan, melt the butter and milk over medium heat.
    • Add the peanut butter and stir until smooth.
    • Remove the mixture from heat and gradually whisk in the powdered sugar and vanilla extract until the frosting is creamy and well combined.
  1. Frost the Cake:
    • Once the cake has cooled slightly, pour the warm frosting over the cake and spread it evenly using a spatula.
  2. Garnish:
    • If desired, sprinkle chopped peanuts over the frosting while it’s still soft.
    • You can also arrange sliced bananas on top for added flavor and presentation.
  3. Serve:
    • Allow the frosting to set before slicing and serving the cake.
