    duonyte's Note:

    I believe I got this recipe from Southern Living - found it scribbled on a program from a conference I attended in Florida. I am not a huge fan of packaged cake mixes, but this is really a life saver when you need something fast and have bananas. I've brought it to a number of potluck, where it's been a real crowd-pleaser.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (16 ounce) box poundcake mix (Betty Crocker brand recommended)
    • 3 large bananas, peeled and mashed
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1/3 cup milk


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 deg. Grease two loaf pans or a 9x13 inch pan.
    2. 2
      Mix all ingredients together, beating for about three or four minutes until thoroughly mixed. Pour into greased pan.
    3. 3
      Bake until done, about 40-45 minutes for large pan, perhaps 35 minutes for loaf pans.
    4. 4
      Cool pan on wire rack for 10 minutes, turn out and cool completely.
    5. 5
      Note1: I've also mixed in a cup or so of chopped walnuts or pecans.
    6. 6
      Note2: I've never put on icing, but a glaze or a dusting of powdered sugar would be nice.

      I made this into two loaves thinking we would eat one and DH could take one to work; well, the second one is going in my freezer to eat when the first one is gone! It is a lot denser than traditional banana bread since it is made with cake and a little sweeter too for that matter, but it is so good. I used ripe bananas, not over-ripe one like I usually would with banana bread and it was still perfectly flavored. Made for Rookie Recipe Tag.

      Made the one large loaf, with bananas nicely ripe & full of flavor! Also added some freshly toasted walnuts & was very satisfied with that! Especially nice still warm from the oven, but then, most breads & loaves like this are so satisfying at that time! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits recipe tag]
