I just realized it has been two weeks since I posted a recipe on this “cooking” blog. Not a lot of cooking has been going on since we have been feverishly working outside while the weather is so perfect, but I did make banana bread for a Relay for Life bake sale last week.
I had never found a banana bread recipe that I was really satisfied with until recently. All the others that I had tried would turn out too dry or too heavy. This is just right! It is light, fluffy, and most importantly, moist. It is also really, really easy.
Easy Banana Nut Bread
1 package yellow cake mix
1/2 cup milk
3 medium-large bananas
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 tsp cinnamon or apple pie spice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 8×4 loaf pans with non-stick spray. Combine cake mix, egg, and milk. Mash bananas and add them to the cake mixture. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in pecans and cinnamon/apple pie spice. Divide batter evenly into the loaf pans. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until tester comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes and then remove from the pans.
