It’s said that Elvis Presley loved peanut butter and banana sandwiches. For that reason, I named this cake, “The Elvis Presley” after him. I think he would have approved.
I got this out of a very old recipe book my husband bought that was put together by nursing home residents. – If you like warm banana bread, and peanut butter you will love this cake! Serve warm.

1- 2/3 cup sugar

2/3 cup finely chopped nuts
2/3 cup buttermilk
1- 1/4 tsp. baking soda
1- 1/4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
