Easy Banana Bread


Easy 3 Ingredient Banana Bread at artsyfartsymama.com #easyrecipe #banana #bread

I wish I had the patience and talent to make my Grandma's banana bread. I really do. However, that's not likely to happen anytime soon, so this is a great shortcut recipe with a similar result! I can't tell you how many bananas I have thrown away in my life because I was too lazy to make "real" banana bread. Now I can just throw these 3-4 ingredients together!

Easy 3 Ingredient Banana Bread at artsyfartsymama.com #easyrecipe #banana #bread

Ingredients:
Yellow Cake Mix
2 Eggs
3-4 Overripe Bananas
1/2-1 cup chocolate chips, nuts, etc. (optional)

  1. Smash bananas in a large bowl (I just mixed them in my KitchenAid)
  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Batter will fill 2 small loaf pans, or one large loaf pan. Make sure to spray pans well with nonstick cooking spray and a little bit of flour.
  3. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes (bake longer if using larger loaf pan)

Tips:
  • Freeze overripe bananas. Put them in a Ziploc bag (peel and all) and thaw when you're ready to use! They stay good for up to 3 months.
  • Don't have a loaf pan? No problem! You can also make this recipe in a muffin tin, cake pan, or a bundt pan. Just be sure to adjust the cooking time accordingly.

  2. Good to know, as there are many times when I am short some sort of dry ingredient to make it from scratch!

  9. just made tonight (after my husband pulled "sausages" out of the freezer for dinner and they were really bananas...). I added about 1/2 c of oil as on the directions... used different brand of cake mix. Made in muffin tin and cooked for 20-25 minutes. Turned out great! Thanks for the idea... and, no, I'm not promoting my own blog - don't even have one!

    1. LOL, I love that "sausages" comment, that is great. I was just reading to find out if someone else tried this recipe and what they thought. I too have had some of those same "sausages" in my freezer.

    2. I recently made this recipe as well, followed the directions exactly as they are written, but in muffin tins. Great recipe! So simple and my husband and I both loved them! Thanks for sharing :)

  10. Love this "shortcut" to homemade treats! One tip, take a bit of the cake mix to flour the pan instead of white flour for a prettier result. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Love this! I do the same thing when I need something quick, except I had not thought of adding chocolate chips. (Although I am known to swirl in some Nutella.) My friends (the ones who say they can't bake) love this idea, and they've all got their kids and husbands fooled thinking that they are baking geniuses. So easy and reliable!

  12. do you still follow the ingredients from the back of the box of the cake?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, you just use the ingredients listed above. Using the bananas replaces the oil, so it also makes the cake/bread less fat! :)

    2. @Nadia04...Thank you for asking this! I was a little confused as to why there were 2 more eggs added to the already 3 listed on the back of the box! Gonna try this easy recipe today! Hubby has been asking for banana bread :-) Thanks for the recipe!

  15. This was so easy and delicious! My family loved it!!! Found it on Pinterest and just had to try when I saw the recipe was from your blog. I linked up to you today in this post: http://tipsfromtheheart.blogspot.com/2012/01/pinterest-kitchen-week-7.html

  16. I'll admit, I'm a bit nervous about this. I just put it in the oven, and I'm sort of expecting it not to come out right. I only had the 'butter recipe' yellow cake mix, and when I mixed it up with the bananas it was dry and wouldn't bind. So I slowly started adding water, even though you let a few ladies know NOT to add the add'l ingredients on the back of the box. It REALLY seems like it needed the eggs though.. guess we'll see in 1/2 hr!! I also set aside a few muffin cups for my daughter then added pecans to the rest and put it in a loaf pan for us.

    1. Look above at the directions again. You're supp to add the 2 eggs.

    2. My banana bread just came out of the oven. I made a loaf and some muffins. I just tried them and they are great! I followed the directions exactly. YUMMM

  17. I just popped mine in the oven! I used a larger loaf pan, since that's all I had, and am baking it for 50 minutes.... not sure if that will be long enough. We shall see. It smells amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Mine is in the oven as we speak! I used about a half cup of choco chips and a half cup of peanut butter chips... So this is like an Elvis banana bread :)

  24. So I did them and muffins! Yumm Yumm I just followed the directions for cooking time on the box and baked them for 19 mins they turned out perfect :) make sure you watch them in the end because I had to different types of muffin tins and one cooked faster than the other.

  25. Does anyone know the nutritional value for this recipe?

  28. just wondering about using applesauce along with the bananas? i only have 2 overripe bananas and thought about adding some applesauce to make up the difference.

    1. I just did that and it is yummy! Used devils food cake for a twist too.

    2. I used 4 small-medium bananas I had in the freezer. Just for kicks I added two
      heaping tbls of unsweetened applesauce. Added a tad more choc. chips. OMG...I can't thank you enough for this recipe. Just got back from buying 5 boxes of cake mix, chips, bananas and a bunch of diposable pans. What a wonderful Christmas gift for friends and nieghbors. Oh...used white cake mix.

  29. Found you through Pinterest and I'm glad I did! I've got mine in the oven right now, though I put them in muffin (and mini) tins for the little hands in our house. I hope it turns out as good as I think it will! Thanks!

  30. Can't wait to try this, as I'm a failure at homemade banana bread. I have to buy banana bread mix for the holidays:( Going to the store today so will be picking up bananas. Oh and a hint on freezing those overripe bananas...I take the banana and kind of squish it into a pint size zip lock bag, let all the air out, zip it, and smash the banana. Then mush it all around till it lies flat like a pancake, and freeze it. Makes thawing fast! and your banana is already mashed!

    ReplyDelete

    1. great tip on freezing the bananas. It would be so neater to be able to stack all those ziplocs in the freezer than having all the frozen loose bananas taking up space in the bottom of my freezer. I think it would even stop my husband from going on a 'if you don't use up all these bananas, I'm just going to toss them into the compost pile' rant!!!

  40. Has anyone tried to use a chocolate cake mix instead of the yellow cake mix? I love chocolate zucchini bread and I wonder if it would be just as good as chocolate banana bread?

    ReplyDelete
  41. I made it with a spice cake mix (not chocolate I know) but it worked out well. I just love the deeper flavor as compared to yellow cake mix. I can't see why you couldn't use chocolate. One thing is that with the spice mix I use a little more banana (more bananas or the ones that are really big because I want the banana to still come thru). I wonder if you want the banana flavor if you would want to use a little extra as well.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Would this freeze well with the chips? Has anyone tried it?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Trying this tonight! I love banana bread can't wait to try!

  44. I love to dust my pans with a little sugar. Adds a little something to the "crust."

  45. I love this! My dad is a diabetic so I changed up the ingredients a tad and used sugar-free yellow cake mix and sugar free chocolate chips and used a muffin pan also. I let my dad try it and he told me he loved it... THEN I told him it was sugar-free. =) The entire family loves it too. Thank you!
    I wonder if there could be an apple variation?...

  46. I didn't have yellow cake mix I had holiday confetti, added some vanilla and cinnamon and it was AMAZING! I also cooked mine in a bundt pan and it was done in 40 mins :)

  47. These are unbelieveable! I make a big batch and freeze them. They freeze very, very well. They thaw out in about an hour and taste super fresh. Thanks for sharing. I will be trying strawberry cake mix next. :)

  48. Have mine in the oven now! I'm not sure what size loaf pans everyone has been using but with mine I made 4 loafs. I did add a little cinnamon to mine and I used french vanilla mix.

  66. Nevermind on the question about omitting the chocolate chips. I didnt have any so was thinking about making it without them. But looking in my cupboard I forgot I had some Ghirardelli white chocolate chips. I used 3/4 cup. OMG,it was delicious! It's worth a try ladies.

  101. I had to try this as soon as I saw it on my friend's Pinterest.
    It came out so moist and just delicious, but all the chocolate chips sank to the bottom of the loaf pan I used. Maybe it's because I used only 2 bananas ( I had only 2.)and the batter wasn't thik enough to hold the chocolate chips in place ?

  104. I usually make my banana muffins from scratch for my kids. But, these are so great and so fast. Thanks so much for the suggestions. I also add a little bit of vanilla and coconut extract. Plus I place a dollop of nutella on top of the uncooked muffins and swirl it in before baking. My kids Love!

  105. I have read all the comments and noone said they had a problem with theirs being to crumbly. I followed directions exactly, it came out of pan perfectly, however (ever after cooling a bit) I could not slice it, it would just crumble terribly, it tasted wonderful but cant get slices out of it. Maybe oil would have prevented this?

  106. I baked this tonight and ended up having to leave it in for 1 hour. The middle just wouldn't cook through. I covered if with foil about 40 mins in to not burn the top. It was delicious though and tasted like homemade bread!

  111. Hi I found you on pinterest and just wanted to say this recipe is the best, especially for someone that dont have time to bake all day. I made this last week and it was a total hit with everyone! I used 4 bananas, 2 eggs, and just walnuts (no chocolate chips). I was a little nervous about the cake mix because I was thinking it would taste too sweet, but it was amazing!!! This bread turned out perfect (that coming from someone who is not very talented in baking either) so simple and delicious. Next time I think I might add a little nutmeg though just to give it a little extra flavor.

  116. I tried this last night, following the recipe, only I used the Betty Crocker GLUTEN FREE yellow cake mix and it turned out wonderful! I added 1/2 cup of applesauce as GF things tend to be incredibly dry. I made some of it into muffins (in paper) and some into mini loaves. Some of the muffins stuck to the paper but, I think they just needed to cook a little longer. The mini loaves came out perfectly. I will definitely be making this again! Thank you!! :)

  120. Just made with sugar free yellow cake mix. Waiting to see how it comes out. Wondering how it would work with nonfat greek yogurt and no eggs like the choco cake recipe on Pinterest (which is a big hit at my house).

  122. instead of using flour spray the baking pans and sprinkle cinnamon-sugar before putting the batter in. the breads fall out of the pans and it adds a little more flavor to them.

  127. Have this in the oven right now. I was a little worried I messed something up because my "batter" was kind of thick. Everything mixed well, it was just really thick and tough. Hope they turn out ok! Thanks for this recipe.

  139. You should peal the bananas before you throw then in the freezer bag. That way when you thaw them to use just squeeze the bag to mash them.

  145. Love this recipe! I've made this several times now, but with sugar-free cake mix. I use chopped walnuts, and I even found sugar-free chocolate chips!!! My batter winds up a little dry, so I add one of my kids' applesauce cups (sugar free) to the batter. I cook in Bundt cake pan, and once cooled, put drizzle on top (Splenda mixed with canola oil and a dash of skim milk). Dee-lish!

  148. I made this tonight and it was amazing! I added ~1/2cup chocolate chips and 1/2cup of peanuts. I used a large loaf pan and it was done in about 55-60 minutes. Just ate a slice with a big glass of milk :) Def making again.

  149. Do you think this could be made with chocolate cake mix?

    ReplyDelete
  150. Ive made this with the yellow cake mix, the chocolate cake mix and right now in the oven I made it with BANANA cake mix! I can't wait to see how it tastes since the last two times i've made it it has been so good!!!! I can only imagine it tastes better with banana cake mix!

  151. I made this on Saturday and it was delicious. I used 3 bananas and 2 large very ripe pears. I did wish I had put in some nuts but I did like it very much just using the basic recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Made this with 1 can pure pumpkin instead of bananas and added pumpkin pie spice. Turned out great!

  153. I just took this out of the oven. I used liquid egg whites instead of whole eggs and instead of chocolate chips, I chopped a bar of Lindt 90% Supreme Dark Chocolate. It smells amazing and based on the taste of the batter, it's going to be a big hit :) Thank you!
