Judge me not! This recipe uses a cake mix. I know, I knowl….but, I needed a fast and easy fix and this recipe fit the bill. It doesn’t get much easier.

Banana Bread Fast!


  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 (18.25 oz) cake mix (*I used a pineapple mix)
  • 1 cup ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup nut or chocolate chips (I used white chocolate)


Combine all ingredients and mix for 2 minutes. Pour into greased 9 x 13 bread pan. Bake for 40 – 50 minutes, of until toothpick comes out clean.

Note: I had enough batter to also make 6 muffins AND, I used a pineapple cake mix, white chocolate chunks and a little coconut. I guess you could call it a tropical version of banana bread. Yum!
