Cake Mix Banana Bread is a great twist on classic banana bread. Plus you only need four ingredients to make this great banana bread.
Cake Mix Banana Bread
Have you ever made banana bread with cake mix? I love how easy it is to make this banana bread with yellow cake mix. We have been on a banana bread kick the past few months being at home.
I make my Grandmother classic Banana Bread Recipe often but have been venturing into playing with new fun adaptations of Banana Bread. We always have bananas on hand or in the freezer so this has been a perfect stress baking project.
These are some of the banana bread adaptations I have made lately...
oh and crockpot banana bread oatmeal just to change it up a bit.
So as you can see we have been deep in Banana Bread. Did I mention I am thinking about a couple of other adaptations for later this week? My husband may be over it soon but I am loving it.
Yellow Cake Mix
I have seen a couple of recipe variations that leave out the oil but I haven't tried them yet.
The uglier the bananas the better. You want them to be able to easily mash together in the cake mix. Aim for super ripe bananas.
I use a hand mixer to make it easy to mix all of the ingredients together.
You can change up the flavor of cake mix used for different flavors. I am going to try a chocolate cake mix next time for chocolate banana bread.
Other ideas include strawberry cake mix, spice cake mix, or really any flavor that sounds good. You can even add chocolate chips. For banana nut bread add in your favorite nuts.
If you have bananas turning and won't be able to use them quickly I like to measure out mashed bananas into baggies and freeze them. I add just a tiny bit extra to make up for the bananas that stick to the bag when we use them. This is a great way to always have bananas ready to throw in for some delicious banana bread.
