    Do you mix the pudding or put it in dry

    Very easy to make. Also a good suggestion, slice leftovers and place into a cooler for instant snack on long car trips.

    I made a large loaf for each one of my co-workers for christmas and they all came back raving about how amazing it was. I also took the tip to use a butter pecan cake mix, since I could not find a banana cake mix. It is so easy and so delicious!!! Definitely a keeper!! Thanks!!

    This bread is full of wonderful banana flavor! It is such a simple recipe. I baked two loaves at 350 degrees for 45 minutes and they were done just right in the middle although a little burnt on the outer edges. I always seem to have that problem with banana bread, though! I used chopped pecans and they taste delicious in this bread. I froze one loaf for later. Thanks for sharing!

    Very good and luscious cake - just for future information you should bake at 350F for 40-45 minutes, you forgot to include baking temp. I used Jello-O instant banana pudding mix and used chopped pecans. I also used 2 large loaf pans instead of the tube or bundt pans. It was very tasty! Thanks for posting, Diane


I am a wife, Mother and Grandmother. I am a native Texan and can't imagine living anywhere else. My Grandmother taught me to cook before I could see the top of the counter. I remember standing on a stool in her kitchen learning to make pancakes. My Mother loved to cook and it seems she was cooking (or cleaning) most of the time. So those are the two ladies responsible for nurturing my love of cooking! <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> As you can see I cook and review recipes more than I post them. That's because I am a pinch of this and a dollop of that cook and it's hard to put those recipes down on paper. <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting">
