Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 pan with butter.
In large bowl, cream the butter, bananas, sugar, eggs, cloves and vanilla. With a beater, mix in the yogurt and eggs until smooth.
In separate bowl, mix salt, baking soda and flour. Slowly mix the flour into the wet ingredients.

In a clean bowl, with beaters cream the butter and peanut butter until smooth. Add the dash of cloves.
