Cake mix banana bread, sounds crazy right? Well, I’ll be honest it’s probably one of my top 5 favorite ways to eat ripe bananas. It’s fluffy, sweet, and subtle in flavor and I’m honestly unsure of whether or not it’s a dessert or snack. 1 recipe makes 2 loaves (or a ton of muffins!)
Banana bread with cake mix
Making traditional banana bread from scratch is easy, but often requires multiple ingredients and steps. This one is 3 ingredients and 3 steps, can’t get much easier than that, right?
It’s a sweet snack or treat that everyone will enjoy. See all the muffins in the pictures posted? My husband and kids had them devoured within hours (and that was with me babysitting the muffins to stretch out their lifespan!)
If you’re looking for a lighter textured banana bread that is easy to make and tastes great- this one is it. Add some frosting, glaze, or eat it as it- you can’t go wrong!
