You can call it bread or cake. I call it bread when it's baked in a loaf pan and cake when it's baked in a bundt pan. Whatever makes you happy though. Either way, this is one REALLY EASY and VERY DELICIOUS way to use up some over-ripe bananas and have a nice treat on the table in no time. ONLY FIVE INGREDIENTS! That is enough to get my attention right there. I have made this one several times before and, to me, it is as good as, or better than, most "from scratch" banana breads I have eaten. Hope you enjoy! If you make it, leave me a comment. I'd love to know what you think.
1 box cake mix with butter
1 stick of butter, melted
4 mashed bananas
1/2 cup nuts
Mix well and bake in a loaf pan at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour or until golden brown.
Yes, that is all of the directions that were included with the recipe.
That is a "butter recipe" cake mix. Oh, and do not substitute margarine for the butter. It gives it a very artificial taste. Your bananas do not have to be over-ripe. When I made this today, I used 2 that were over-ripe and 2 that were just fine for eatin'. I peel mine and toss them in a mixing bowl then get out my handy-dandy potato masher and don't stop til it's banana soup. I bake mine in a bundt pan just because that's my preference. It only takes 45 minutes when in a bundt pan and unless you have a really big loaf pan, I think I would divide this between 2 loaf pans.
