Quick and easy Banana Bread
This is my favorite recipe for banana bread. It is so quick and easy and versatile. Try it and let me know what you think!
Cake Mix Banana Bread
3-5 ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup vegetable oil OR applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 pkg yellow cake mix (18.5 ounce)
Optional: chopped nuts, chocolate chips, coconut - 1/2 to 1 cup depending on your preference
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously grease bundt pan. Mix the mashed bananas, oil (or applesauce), eggs and vanilla. Add cake mix and stir thoroughly - batter will be thick. Spoon into pan and bake for 40-45 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes and then invert onto cooling rack. Let cool completely.
This recipe can also be made in 2 8" loaf pans or in 18 muffin tins. Bake time for loaves is approximately 30 minutes and muffins approximately 20 minutes.
