Real Banana Milk Cake

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by duke1981

Got tired of the old recipes for banana cake that used mashed bananas, with little flavour. So, decided to try a variation to a cake mix, and was surprised at flavour, and reviews! The French Vanilla adds extra to the flavour - do not use White or plain mix! Icing set it off as true winner!!

I had some banana milk to use up, and wouldn't ya know, 'zaar had a recipe for it! An easy one, too! I only had a half of the needed amount, and no extract, so I added a mashed banana, and this was the most moist and pleasant cake, so different from the normal cake mix texture.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (18 ounce) box French vanilla cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 13 cup oil
  • 1 12 cups banana milk
  • 1 tablespoon banana extract


  1. Blend cake mix, milk, eggs, and banana extract together-use Banana Milk instead of ordinary milk/water- IMPORTANT** adds to overall flavor.
  2. Whip all ingredients for at LEAST 5 minutes- this makes cake fluffy and very moist.
  3. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan.
  4. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes (a little extra time to allow for milk sub).
  5. Broil top for 2 minutes if too moist on top.
  6. Cool cake.
  7. Can add icing or top with whip cream (add one of those iced mocha mix packets to cream for great flavour combo).
  8. Top with bananas for creme de la resistant!
