3 Ingredient Banana Bread

This week has been crazy and when I’m not home, we don’t eat all of the food in the house. We are on the “not loving bananas” phase in our house. They were definitely too brown and nasty to attempt to eat so I decided to find a recipe that called for bananas. As I searched, I found one from Lindsay at Artsy-Fartsy Mama. I just met Lindsay from our Build Your Blog Conference and she really is one of the nicest people I have ever met. I also LOVE her blog! She has so many cute ideas – Check it out here!

3 Ingredient Banana Bread

1 (15.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
2 eggs
3-4 overripe bananas

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Smash bananas in a large bowl (I just mixed them in my Bosch), then add remaining ingredients and mix well. Spray 2 small loaf pans or 1 large loaf pan with non stick cooking spray. Fill the pans (or pan) with batter. Bake at for 35-40 minutes – you might need to bake longer if using 1 loaf pan.

  1. Do you think this would work with gluten-free cake mix? Betty Crocker makes one that I've seen as a base for carrot cake before. I'd imagine the bread would be rather dense but if it worked and I didn't have to keep making 2 loaves for us that would be kind of great!

      I just made this using the spice cake, 4 nasty bananas, 2 eggs....and I had to throw in a cup of chopped walnuts. I baked them in 4 mini loaves and they turned out spectacular! Thanks for the spice cake idea! (ps...I baked the mini loaves @350 for 33 minutes).
  2. How many cups mashed does the banana come to? Bananas vary SO much in size that some small bananas are only 1/2 the size of a large sized banana.... and that could lead to over dry or gooey results... I'd like to try this with a chocolate cake mix to make choco-banana bread!!
  3. I loved this recipe! It was so easy. I had on hand three large, ripe bananas and a box of white cake mix. I added 2 teaspoons of coconut oil and 1 teaspoon of vanilla in with the eggs and mixed it all by hand. I baked it in a loaf pan for 55 min. at 350, and it turned out perfect!
  4. Not worth the time or effort (and it is minimal). I got sucked in to this.....experienced cooks/bakers will know better. THIS IS NOT Banana Bread, it is banana cake. Sort of. The texture is singularly disgusting, like rubber.....I will definitely take 5 more minutes to make the real thing. Very disappointing and I don't get where the raves are coming from. Sorry to rain on the parade but must be truthful!
  5. Bought a $1.50 bag of slightly over ripe bananas for my Yonanas machine and used 4 of them to try this recipe. Used a yellow cake mix and made (2) 4×9 loaves. Spent about $2 and got a loaf for our house and one to share. Loved the recipe. Heavier than cake but not as heavy as traditional banana bread. Cant wait to try dome variations. Think a banana cake mix would work really good.
  6. This is the second time this week I have made the 3 Ingredient Banana Bread. I used chocolate the first time and it was a big hit - Kind of reminds me of Costco chocolate muffins. Today I am using a Butter Pecan cake mix. I don't like to cook as much as I did when my kids were little but this is SO simple even I don't mind throwing it together! Thanks for the recipe.
