I rarely use convenience products. However, I am currently fascinated by all the recipes using a box cake mix as a base. I buy the mixes when a store features them at $1 a piece or less. I needed to make something to take to a meeting at church Monday
night. I'm really low on baking ingredients as I don't bake a lot in the summer. Had all the ingredients for this recipe so made it this afternoon. I guess it comes out more like a loaf cake than quick bread. Added the nutmeg the second time I made this recipe as
it enhances the banana flavor which is a little dwarfed by the cake mix flavor.
1, 18 1/4 oz. yellow cake mix
1/2 cup milk
1 cup mashed bananas, about 2 medium
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, egg and milk. Stir in banana. Beat on medium speed ( hand held mixer works fine) for 2 minutes. Transfer to two, 8X4 inch greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40 to 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in
the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes in pans before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Yields 2 loaves, 12 slices each for about 100 calories a slice.
