Today is National Coffee Cake Day, the perfect excuse to try this Elvis Coffee Cake!
The Elvis Coffee Cake takes all the ingredients from the 'King of Rock and Roll's' favorite peanut butter, bacon and banana sandwich and bakes them into a rich and luscious cake. Sweet, moist, salty and very easy to prepare, if you are a bacon lover, you 'Can't Help Falling in Love' with this incredible combination of flavors. I guarantee with one bite you'll be 'All Shook Up' and going back for seconds!
2 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup peanut butter
4 Tblsp butter, softened
2 ripe bananas, smashed
3/4 cup plus 2 Tblsp brown sugar, separated
1/3 cup milk
1 Tblsp peanut butter
2/3 cup confectioner's sugar
1 Tblsp water
8-10 slices of bacon.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C.
Add the butter and peanut butter to a medium microwave-safe mixing bowl and heat on high for 30 seconds. Then, stir together to combine before adding the bananas, eggs, 3/4 of a cup of brown sugar, and milk. Stir to combine before adding the Bisquick, and then mix until the wet and dry ingredients are well mixed but don’t over mix.
Spoon the batter into a greased 8-inch round cake pan and smooth the top with a rubber spatula before scattering over 1 of the 2 tablespoons of brown sugar that was set aside. Bake at 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
To make the glaze, stir together the peanut butter, water and confectioners’ sugar until smooth and set aside.
Fry the bacon until crispy then drain on paper towels and sprinkle with the remaining tablespoon of brown sugar. Once cool use a pair of kitchen shears to cut the bacon into small pieces and set aside.
When the cake is done let it cool for 10 minutes before removing it from the pan. Once it has cooled completely top it off by alternating bacon crumbles and peanut butter glaze until both are used up and evenly dispersed.
