Banana and Butterfinger. These two ingredients are not something you would expect to go together, but they are one of the most delicious flavor combinations. The moist banana cake is elevated by the chunks of crunchy Butterfinger. This is a must try recipe! Great as a dessert to wow your guests or call it 'banana bread' and eat it for breakfast. This is one of the fluffiest, moistest, flavorful cake recipes out there. Feel free to coat it in a ganache or glaze and maybe even sprinkle some more Butterfingers on top. Take this base recipe and use kitkats, reese's, or any other candy you like.
