  • The Flavor Base:

    • 2 large eggs
  • The Magic Mix:

    • 1 box of yellow cake mix (your favorite brand)
  • Optional Add-Ins:

    • Chopped nuts (any kind you prefer)


  1. Mashing the Magic: Begin by mashing your ripe bananas in a large bowl. The riper the bananas, the sweeter and more flavorful your banana bread will be!

  2. Egg-cellent Addition: Add the two eggs to the mashed bananas and whisk them together until well combined.

  3. Nutty Delight (Optional): If you're using nuts, now's the time to add them to the batter. Fold in your chopped nuts of choice, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the mixture.

  4. Cake Mix Magic: Here comes the secret ingredient – the cake mix! Pour the entire box of yellow cake mix into the banana and egg mixture. Use a rubber spatula to gently fold everything together until just combined. Be careful not to overmix!

  5. Dividing and Conquering: Prepare two small loaf pans by greasing them lightly. Divide the banana bread batter evenly between the two pans.

  6. Baking to Perfection: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Bake the banana bread loaves for about 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  7. Golden Goodness: Remove the loaves from the oven and let them cool in the pans for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

  8. Enjoy or Freeze: The beauty of this recipe is its versatility. Enjoy one loaf warm and fresh from the oven, and freeze the other for later! Sliced frozen banana bread makes for a perfect grab-and-go breakfast or afternoon snack.

Bonus Tip: This banana bread is also wonderful for gifting. Wrap a cooled loaf in plastic wrap and tie it with a colorful ribbon for a thoughtful and delicious housewarming present. Everyone loves a homemade treat!
