I have a confession to make, my family doesn't eat enough fruit. Nothing brings this point home more than blackening bananas in my fruit bowl.

But instead of just throwing them away as I usually do and feeling horrible that I am wasting food, I decided to take action and actually do something with them.

And if you don't know me by now, you should know that I am super lazy, which is why I was so happy to stumble on this easy 3 ingredient banana bread recipe, because 3 ingredients means less cleanup.

I'm happy to report that my laziness paid off and this banana bread is super moist and flavorful and is perfect for breakfast or as a snack.

I hope you enjoy the comfort of this easy, delicious bread as much as I did.

  • 1 boxed cake mix I like yellow, but you can use white, carrot, etc.
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 ripe bananas (or more if you like a stronger banana taste)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)

Grease pan (English loaf pan, bread pan, muffin pan, even a 9x9 pan if you'd like)
In a large mixing bowl combine cake mix, eggs, and smashed bananas.
Gently stir together.
Optional - add 1 tsp of cinnamon to your batter.
Bake at 350 F for 45-50 mins in a bread pan. 30 mins in a cake pan. 25 mins in muffin pan. Times vary greatly depending upon your cake mix.
Bake until a toothpick comes out clean to make sure the center is completely cooked.
  • If you want a crunchy crust, spray pan and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Pour batter in and sprinkle the top with more brown sugar and cinnamon.
