Banana Pecan Cake

Banana Pecan Cake

I always seem to have extra bananas lying around that are just waiting to be added to a recipe.

Instead of my usual use of bananas in banana bread I decided to add them┬áto a cake using cake mix from the box (secret’s out!)

This recipe is so simple and you can even use it to whip up a quick bananna bread. It came out so moist and the pecans added a nice crunch.

What you’ll need:

* 1 white cake mix box (follow recipe on box to make a regular cake)

* 2-3 ripe banannas

* 1/2 cup of butter

* half a teaspoon of baking soda

*2 containers of store bough cream cheese frosting. You can make it yourself, but I find this way easier and I’m all about easy baking!

Steps:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour your cake pans.
  2. Follow the instructions on the cake mix box. Using an electric mixer, mix in the baking soda and butter.
  3. Mash banannas
  4. Chop pecans
  5.  Stir in mashed bananas and chopped pecans
  6. Top with cream cheese frosting and chopped pecans.

This cake was a huge hit. It was so easy to take a simple boxed cake mix and turn it into another delicious banana recipe!

Enjoy!
