Today’s recipe is a banana bread recipe that has been simplified with the use a cake mix.  I am not sure where I got this banana bread recipe from. However, before I originally made it, I had been holding on to it forever and then finally gave it a try when I had some bananas to use up.

Now, you can use a white or yellow cake mix to make it. I decided to try it with a butter pecan cake mix the first time I made it.  You can mix some nuts into the batter if you like.  However, I usually don’t because my family isn’t a fan of nuts.

This bread is so easy, yummy, and moist.  It only takes some banana, cake mix, oil, and eggs. So only four ingredients. If you add in some nuts, it will make it 5 ingredients. I have also used the banana bread to make banana bread French toast.

  1. I have made this several times, as written, it always turns out wonderful! I am using the Butter pecan mix today, I’m sure It will also be great! I was wondering if I could substitute apples, or add them with the bananas? It seems I always have apples that are on the verge of going bad! But I don’t think I would use the butter pecan mix though, what would you suggest?
