Delicious Cake Mix Banana Bread

OK, so it might not be as healthy as the "real stuff"....
but it's just as good. Might even be better!
And who's counting calories anyway?? lol!

Cake mix (you choose!)
1 pkg banana pudding (3.5 oz)
2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs

chocolate chips (our favorite!)

Preheat oven to 350.
Mash bananas and add all ingredients. Mix well and pour
into 2 large or 5 small loaf pans. (I spray loaf pans with 'Pam Baking Spray')
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until knife inserted comes out clean.

There are so many flavors of this bread you can make...
Here's some of our favorites!

Banana Strawberry Bread (use a strawberry cake mix)
Double Chocolate Banana Bread (Choc cake mix and Choc chips)
Banana Chocolate Chip (Vanilla Cake mix with Choc chips)
Banana Blueberry (Vanilla Cake mix with fresh blueberries)
Gonna Try: Lemon Blueberry (Lemon Cake mix with fresh blueberries...mmmm. )

So many possibilities.
And I usually have everything on hand...I just pick up a few boxes of
banana pudding here and there and I usually have plenty of cake mixes on hand....
When our bananas start to "turn".... like they always do, (my kids beg for bananas at the store, and then never eat them!!) , it's time to make some banana bread!!



  1. oh yum! and yes, so many possibilities! i'm thinking i might like to give the bluebery a try!

    ran across your blog on NFF ~ following now and will be back when i can stay longer. love you blog design!

  2. Oh my goodness! I'm def going to try this one! Sounds wonderful! :)

  3. this sounds like an awesome banana bread! My hubby buys our groceries, and even though 3 of us eat them we can never eat as many as he buys us! So I always throw the last couple in the freezer and make a banana bread. But with a cake mix?? YUMMM You are a genius! LOL
