Instead of making banana bread to use up those ripe bananas, why not try this instead?

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box yellow cake mix
  • 1 (3 1/2 ounce) packageinstant Vegetarian banana pudding mix (use butterscotch if you can't find banana, the flavour will be a little different though)
  • 12 cup mashed ripe banana
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • 14 cup vegetable oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350F; grease a bundt pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and beat with your electric mixer for 3 minutes.
  3. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 50-55 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.
  4. Cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan.
  5. If desired, combine 1 cup of sifted icing sugar with a little milk and drizzle this over the cake.

I used one banana and baked in a 9 by 13 pan for 45 minutes. I iced with cream cheese frosting and added pecans. Yum, very moist and banana-y.

Very moist. I only had vanilla pudding in my cupboard so I used that. My children ate up every drop. Will certainly make again next time I have "rotten" bananas.

Hey Lennie, This was so good! A very light cake, and packed with a lot of banana flavor. I prefer making this cake, than throwing together a loaf of banana bread. I didn't drizzle the cake with a powdered sugar frosting 'cause it didn't need it. It was sooo good with out it. I did use one small ripened banana, instead of the 1/2 c. that it called for. An "excellant" banana cake Lennie. Thanks for the recipe. I definately will be making this cake many times over, since it's sooo good, and sooo quick and easy to throw together.
