Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup ripe mashed bananas about 3 bananas
  • 1/4 cup of oil
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 cups cream cheese frosting
  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the Oven and Prepare the Pan - Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Next grease the pan with cooking spray or shortening and then sprinkle with flour until fully covered. Pour out the excess flour and set the pan aside.
  • Beat the Ingredients - In a large bowl, beat the cake mix, eggs, oil, sour cream, and mashed bananas with an electric mixer until combined. Frequently stop to scrape the sides of the bowl. Beat the mix on medium speed for two minutes.
  • Bake the Cake - Pour the cake mix into the pan using a spatula. Make sure that the cake mix is evenly spread. Bake the cake for 35 minutes.
  • Decorate the Cake - Allow the cake to cool completely. Carefully remove from pan and cover with cream cheese frosting. Top with chopped walnuts if desired.
  • Slice the cake into 16 pieces and keep the frosted cake chilled. Cake frosted with cream cheese frosting needs to be refrigerated in order to keep it safe for eating.
  • Packed with flavor and texture, this banana cake will not disappoint. Best of all, enjoy it with cream cheese frosting and walnuts. Banana lovers will rejoice when they try a slice of this cake.
  • Using cake mix provides for an easy and tasty cake. Yellowcake mix is the best option to create a traditional banana cake. Ideally, you will want to use a yellow cake mix that contains a pudding mix within it.

Notes

  • When making this banana cake recipe with cake mix, it is best to use ripe bananas that have developed some brown spots. The more brown spots on the banana the sweeter it is, making it more ideal for baking. This will allow for a better texture in the cake and give it a richer flavor.
  • Be sure to avoid bright yellow bananas with any green, as they may make the cake tough and not sweet enough. Banana cake is a great way to use up your leftover bananas that may be starting to get too mushy to eat on their own.
  • When mashing the bananas, there are several ways you can go about it. For example, try using a potato masher or even place the bananas in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin to mash them. You can even use your mixer to mash them up too.
  • Cream cheese icing is the most common topping for banana cake. However, you may use buttercream or whipped cream frosting as well. Decorating with walnuts is a great way to cover up any imperfections in your cake.
  • In addition to frosting, some people add other toppings besides walnuts. For instance, try adding a sprinkling of cinnamon or drizzle your favorite chocolate sauce on top. You can even add maple syrup, caramel sauce or fresh fruit.
  • If you use cream cheese frosting to decorate your cake, you should store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container when not serving it. It can be stored in the fridge for up to five days and in the freezer for up to three months. Allow any frozen cakes to thaw in the refrigerator overnight before serving.
