Easy Banana Bread

    Posted by  ·  August 30, 2017

    This easy banana bread is oh so moist and delicious and loaded with banana flavor. It is super easy because it uses a yellow cake mix.  No measuring flour, baking soda, sugar and other ingredients.  Let the cake mix do most of the work in this super easy banana bread recipe.

    Cake mixes can be the perfect start to so many yummy treats. Some of my favorite cake mix recipes are these snickerdoodle cookies,  this lemon cake , 3 ingredient pumpkin muffins or try making the easiest sugar cookies you will ever make!

    Easy Banana Bread

    Super easy recipe for moist and delicious banana bread. A cake mix gives you a head start!

    Course Bread


    • 1 yellow cake mix without pudding
    • 1 3.4 ounce box of instant banana pudding
    • 1 cup water
    • 4 eggs
    • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
    • 3 ripe bananas mashed
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla


    1. In a mixing bowl beat eggs with a mixer until pale and thick. Add in cake mix, pudding, oil and water and mix well. Fold in mashed bananas. Pour batter into two medium sized loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 - 60 mins or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

    If you want to make your banana bread from scratch give my banana bread recipe a try… I even give a whole wheat banana bread version. I love tossing in a few chocolate chips! If you too like chocolate and banana these chocolate chip banana muffins are another family favorite.  We love quick breads at our house and another all time favorite is pumpkin bread. This bread is so moist! You will never need another recipe. Next on my list to try is this chocolate zucchini bread.

      I never thought of trying a cake mix and turning out banana bread.
      I usually add nuts to mine, but can't wait to try this.
      Thanks for sharing. I really enjoy reading through your website.

      The recipe for Easy Banana Bread says to "mix the eggs" but eggs are not listed in the ingredients! Please tell me how many eggs to use.
      • Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015
        Not dumb at all Martha, I left it out so sorry! It is 4 eggs.

      Looks yummy. This is probably a dumb question but how many eggs? Or is it according to the cake mix package?
      • Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015
        Sorry Ann, left it out. Use 4 eggs.

      if you use a CAKE mix,you will have a banana CAKE,not banana BREAD.
      • Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015
        Well the cake mix just supplies the flour, sugar and leavening.... already measured out ready to go. So really it is very similar to my banana bread recipes.
