I have very fond memories of making homemade goodies for friends, neighbors and school teachers when I was a child. Things like homemade banana bread, jam, chocolate chip cookies, decorated sugar cookies and more.
My family’s made from scratch banana bread recipe is absolutely the best I’ve ever had.
But this is SO not my Mother’s banana bread!
That recipe is completely made from scratch and this version I am sharing today, well it only has two ingredients.
Yes you read right, two!
This banana bread is inspired by some famous two ingredient pumpkin muffins made simply from spiced cake mix and pumpkin puree. Yes just those two things.
So that got me thinking and a while back, I thought if pumpkin puree and cake mix combined could become muffins; then why couldn’t mashed bananas and a cake mix become bread?
And much to my delight, it worked!
This banana bread is full of that banana flavor and is moist in texture. It is actually so moist that it sticks to your fingers. No dry and flavorless banana bread here! And the best part, it is made and baked in under 30 minutes!
Oh and did I mention…. only two ingredients?
