Cake Mix – You will need one box of yellow cake mix for this banana bread. Almost all cake mix boxes have an 15.25 ounce size. This ingredient makes for the ultimate hack because you will not need to fuss with flour, and dry ingredients like baking powder, sugar, etc.
Bananas – The more specs the better! This recipe uses 3 medium-sized bananas or 11/3 cups to add flavor and moisture.
Vanilla Extract – Vanilla extract adds some warm flavor to this loaf.
Eggs – These help to add height and moisture to the batter to allow it to bake up.
Butter – This recipe uses 1/3 cup of melted, unsalted butter. This will add moisture, and flavor to your loaf.
How to Make Cake Mix Banana Bread
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper or spray it with nonstick baking spray.
Mash the bananas until they are mushy.
In a large bowl, combine the yellow cake mix, mashed bananas, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. Stir until all ingredients are combined and there are no lumps.
Pour the batter into a greased baking pan.
Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center.
Allow the loaf to cool for 30 minutes or more before cutting it into slices and serving!
One fun variation is to add chocolate chips or walnuts for an extra crunch and flavor. Or you could top your loaf with cinnamon sugar for a sweet twist. You could also add some spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon, or allspice for a spicy kick. For an even more decadent treat, try adding white chocolate chips or dried fruit like raisins for added texture and sweetness.
How to Store Cake Mix Banana Bread
Once you’ve created a delicious cake mix banana bread, it’s time to store it! To get the most out of your creation, proper storage is key.
The best way to store yellow cake mix banana bread is in an airtight container. Any type of air-tight container will work including plastic wrap or any other kind of food-safe material. If you’re using a plastic bag or wrap, make sure to press all the air out before sealing it off. This will help keep moisture from entering and causing mold growth on your bread. IT should last up to four days when stored properly at room temperature.
You can also store yellow cake mix banana bread in the freezer. Make sure to wrap it up tightly in plastic wrap. Place the wrapped loaf or slices in an additional resealable bag or airtight container before putting them into the freezer. This will help keep moisture from entering and causing freezer burn on your delicious creation. This will last up to 3 months when stored properly.
No matter how you choose to store yellow cake mix banana bread, just remember that proper storage is key to maintaining its quality and taste. Enjoy!
