I can't find a banana cake mix locally, but I use a yellow cake mix and it's fine! This is a great summer dessert. I made this for a deck party and everyone loved it! Thanks!

This Is A Very Good Cake! My mother Has Been making it since the 80's and everytime she makes it there is not even a crumb left and always someone that wants the recipe. It is great to take to pot-lucks.
