This is the perfect recipe when you have those ripe bananas that need to be used really soon. Like today! In about 20 minutes, you can have banana muffins!
Preheat oven to temperature stated on cake mix box. Usually 350 Fahrenheit
I used 4 medium sized bananas. You could use three large, or 4 – 5 small ones. Mash them! I use this masher.
Add a box of cake mix. Just the cake mix. Not the stuff you are told to add.
Find your favorite mixing spoon!
Start stirring. I promise it will start looking like dough! It is sticky.
Now, here is a totally optional addition. My family likes cinnamon in their banana bread. I make homemade banana bread and add cinnamon to that too. About 1/2 a teaspoon.
Just an FYI, the texture of this is a little different from a scratch banana bread recipe. It’s not as dense. Not better or worse, just different. It has a great place in every person’s recipe collection of quick and easy recipes.
Bake 16 – 18 minutes. Mmmmmm they smell so good when they bake. A little piece of advice. If you are going to frequently make muffins, buy yourself a good nonstick muffin tin!Print
