For the Cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium bananas)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk

For the Peanut Butter Frosting:

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk (or as needed for desired consistency)

For the Bacon Topping:

  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan and set it aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Add the mashed bananas to the butter mixture and mix until well combined.
  6. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture, alternating with the buttermilk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, mixing just until incorporated after each addition. Be careful not to overmix.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread it evenly.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  9. While the cake is baking, prepare the peanut butter frosting. In a mixing bowl, beat together the peanut butter and softened butter until smooth and creamy.
  10. Gradually add the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and milk (if needed) to achieve a spreadable consistency. Beat until well combined and smooth.
  11. Once the cake has cooled completely, spread the peanut butter frosting evenly over the top.
  12. Sprinkle the crumbled bacon on top of the frosting, evenly distributing it across the cake.
  13. Slice the Elvis Presley Sheet Cake into squares and serve.


  • Make sure the bananas are ripe for the best flavor and texture in the cake. Overripe bananas with brown spots work perfectly.
  • If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, you can make a substitute by adding 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to 1/2 cup of regular milk. Let it sit for a few minutes until it curdles slightly.
  • For a more pronounced peanut butter flavor, you can add some chopped peanuts to the frosting or sprinkle them on top of the cake along with the bacon.
  • If you want to enhance the bacon flavor, you can brush the cooked bacon with a little maple syrup before crumbling it over the cake.
  • This cake can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days. However, if it’s a hot day or the frosting starts to soften, it’s best to refrigerate it.


Elvis Presley Sheet Cake is a delicious and unique dessert that pays tribute to the iconic musician’s favorite flavors. With its moist banana cake base, creamy peanut butter frosting, and crispy bacon topping, this cake is a delightful combination of sweet and savory. Whether you’re a fan of Elvis Presley or simply looking for a crowd-pleasing dessert, this recipe is sure to impress. So, grab your ingredients, turn up some Elvis tunes, and enjoy a slice of this delectable Elvis Presley Sheet Cake in true rock ‘n’ roll style.
