Semi-Homemade Banana Cake

Updated on June 19, 2013
5 stars from 1 rating of Semi-Homemade Banana Cake

Stocking up on cake mixes when they go on sale can save you so much time and money for those times when unexpected guests drop in or those last minute school bake sales. I always keep frozen ripe bananas in the freezer and add them to the cake mix. This banana cake turns out so moist and delicious that it’s hard to believe it came out of a box.

      Great hub. Voted up and useful. I have probably gained 10lbs just looking at some of your featured hubs. This one I am going to try-although I'm a horrible baker this cake may be doable even for me.

      Thank you for stopping by and voting Laura. I appreciate it. I laughed reading your comment. That's what I always think after looking at food magazines. My dessert recipes are super simple to make even for someone who has never baked. Try the cream filled pastry that I posted earlier. It's just preparing and assembling ingredients, anyone can do it.

      Oh my gosh, this one looks absolutely delicious too. It also looks like one my grandchildren will love. I guess writing and baking is a pretty good combination when you're snowed in! Voted up, useful, shared and pinned.

      I'm sure your grandchildren will love the cake Gail. I sometimes add a cup of chopped walnuts to it. You could also mix in a cup of chocolate chips before baking it. The kids will love it. Have fun with the recipe and thanks for voting and sharing :).
